Take a break from those busy, noisy, cities. Relaxation and fun is what every traveler needs and what the TreeHouse provides, all year round.

The TreeHouse is run by Gerhard Bammer and his staff. This is his home and his business and his guests are treated like part of the family. He has two dogs Gina and Nicky. Don`t be surprised to find them underfoot most of the time. Gerhard has owned the TreeHouse since 1998 and the locals still call it the Kristall. Old names die hard around here. Yes, you´ll meet locals here. No, they don`t speak a lot of English, but they`re fun and interesting to say the least.
