Treehouse Manor Hofgut Hafnerleiten

Leisure Activities

A few kilometers from Bad Birnbach in Lower Bavaria, in the middle of nature, lies Manor Hofgut Hafnerleiten with its twelve individual accommodations. In addition to the boat house, the water house, the house at the forest or in the field, there is one treehouse that can be reached via 15 steps. It was designed by the Munich architectural office Studio Lot. Their most important criteria was to preserve nature, make it come alive but still put the humans first. With a facade of larch wood and floors made of slate and spruce wood inside the house, these architects definitely did their job.

The Manor Hofgut Hafnerleiten is an unparalleled safe haven. Originally opened 1999 by Erwin Rückerl as a cooking school, it now inspires guests who search for a little break and great culinary art.


Light colors make for a comfortable atmosphere. The spacious accommodation provides unique luxury on 45 square meters between the treetops. In addition to a fireplace and a bath tub that is oriented towards the sunset, there are two small terraces at the gable sides of the house and another terrace one floor down under the house, with two large rocking chairs.

Big windows allow a lot of light to fall into the treehouse and offer the guests wonderful views to the hilly landscape, the fields and meadows, the forest and the little lake of the manor.


After a restful night high up in the air, the guests enjoy a large breakfast at eye-level with local birds and sometimes even squirrels. Every morning a basket with fresh rolls, coffee, home-made jam, sausage, cheese and eggs from the chicken living at the manor will be delivered directly to the treehouse. At the evening guests may book a private dinner at their accommodation. Those who like it a little more social can join the other guests at the big table at the main house.


Without Wifi, TV, Radio or mobile reception, there is a lot of time for happy laziness. Guests who stay here decide deliberately to get away from everything and be offline for a few days. Just in case you really need a connection, there is Wifi at the main house of the manor.

Leisure activities

You can take walks, read at the house library or visit the cooking school of the manor. Chef Erwin Rückerl in person teaches you how to prepare pasta and antipasti or how to add seasoning, and he also gives grill, wine and barista seminars. Guests who can’t leave everyday-life behind at once get a free “Get-away-package”. It contains for example a puzzle with a picture of the manor which makes you forget the TV program, and audio books to replace the radio. Instead of surfing the internet, guests may choose a magazine or a newspaper.
