... Der historische Fachwerkbau am idyllischen Schaalsee
beherbergte einst die Küsterschule. Für das heutige Fischhaus
wurde die Fassade liebevoll auf traditionelle Weise mit rotem
Backstein restauriert. In einer Verbindung von Tradition und
Moderne wurde im Inneren ein warmes Wohlfühlambiente,
das 63 Gästen Platz bietet, gestaltet. Durch den Garten mit
seinen Obstbäumen führt der Weg direkt an das Seeufer.

... the Biosphere Reserve “Schaalsee” ...
... Schaalsee landscape was formed during the Ice Age.
Schaalsee itself is the deepest lake of northern
Germany with an extension of 24 km2, surrounded
by many smaller lakes, hill moors, fens, natural
forests and extensively used meadowland.
The lake Schaalsee was crossed by the Inner German
border. Schaalsee is an important resting and
breeding area for aquatic birds like the White-
tailed Eagle and the Marsh Harrier and for
forest species like the Boreal Owl.
The Fire-bellied Toad has an important
population in this region.
