Spend the night on board - what can you expect?
Our two houseboats, "Schwanennest" (Swan's Nest) and "Eisvogel" (Kingfisher) are is firmly anchored at the so-called Edelteich, which belongs to the Rothermann’schen Fischzucht. Whoever stays here overnight should be reasonably seaworthy and know that a boat can always be a bit on the move.
- Electric underfloor heating in all rooms
- Air conditioning
- Hot water boiler
GalleyOur second houseboat is also entered from the aft. In contrast to the Schwanennest, here you are the first to enter the galley.
The galley is equipped with
- Kitchen sink
- Induction cooker with 2 plates
- Fridge with freezer compartment, equipped with a breakfast starter pack for the first day on board
- Coffee maker and kettle
- Crockery, cutlery, glasses, cups and everything else you can use for cooking
- Dish towels
- Wiping cloth, washing-up brush
- Dishwashing liquid
The dining area consists of a cosy bar that doubles as a work surface and dining table. From the bar, you can enjoy the view of the reeds and pond. This boat is particularly suitable for couples consisting of an night-owl and an early-bird, because the early-bird can have its first coffee early or take a walk around the ponds, while the night-owl can stay in bed undisturbed for longer.
BathroomOpposite the galley is the bathroom with a shower, washbasin and WC. There you will find towels, soaps, shower gel and shampoo, a hairdryer, various toiletries and two drawers, which will serve as storage space.
Sleeping and reading room
After the galley, you will enter the sleeping and reading parlour, which offers a magnificent view of our pond. Here you can open your eyes in the morning and watch the colourful hustle and bustle of the water creatures while still lying down. Internal blinds and curtains naturally protect you from prying eyes! Here too, you lie in a 1.40 metre wide bed and have the advantage of being able to climb into it from one side and from the foot end. At the end of the bed there is a small shelf with baskets in which you can store a lot of things. Additional clothing can be stored in the wardrobe in the galley. All bed linen is of course included. You can sleep here either with the patio door wide open (incl. fly screen) or with the porthole windows tilted, and a cosy wing chair invites you to read.
You will also find in our reading room:
- Air conditioning
- Box, for listening to music
- Blank diaries
- Games that can be played in pairs
There is a small terrace at the bow of our houseboat, furnished with two chairs and a table. So that the sun doesn't get too hot, you will of course also find a parasol here. And for lovers of natural waters, the boat is also equipped with a swimming ladder.

- Daily fresh bakery bag (except Sundays)
- SUP (stand up paddle)
