We installed an electric fireplace during the renovation works to provide a romantic atmosphere in the room. You can dim the flames simulation. The fireplace also has a colorful LED backlight that gives the wall an attractive, colourful accent. With a simple push of the button, you can control the electric fan heater (with a power of 2000 watts), so the room gradually fills with extra heat.

Fire protection

The complete house complies with the fire protection legislation:

– The kitchen area has fireproof doors.
– There are ample fire extinguishers present.
– Signs show emergency exits and/or measures.
– There are three emergency telephones (in case your cell phone is empty or has no connection).

♣ The guests bring along their flipchart markers and whiteboard markers.


Downstairs has the original flooring in most places, except for the toilet area, the wet room and the downstairs bedroom. Upstairs has the original wooden flooring with some renovated patches. Because the wood is probably pine, it is too weak to be left bare. Therefore, we have covered it with new appropriate flooring. For hygienic purposes, we have chosen flooring which is cleans easily and hardly gathers dust.


The guests bring along their own foodstuffs and drinks. They can also go to local restaurants, tea rooms and pubs.


The Dojo-Haus combines the best of two worlds: the centre of a village and a short distance to 360° nature. Choose whatever direction, you will soon see wonderful views or smell delightful forests.

The Dojo-Haus has two central heating circuits: the Dojo-Saal (big hall) and the the rest of the house. The central heating is programmed to switch on and off at the beginning and end of your stay. Use the radiator buttons and the Dojo-Saal heating instructions to adapt the heating to your needs. The laminated checklist above the information table in the entrance hall contains the details. It is normal – especially in the winter months – that the radiators remain open when leaving the Dojo-Haus. For example, in this way, the pre-programmed app can ensure that the temperature is comfortable when the cleaning team comes and a few hours before new guests arrive.

The guests sort their waste and throw it in the designated containers at the end of their stay:

  • The municipal glass container is at the back of the village graveyard (Zur Ochsenbaracke).
  • PMD, which stands for plastic bottles, metal cans and brik packaging, in the car park container.
  • Paper and cardboard in the car park container.
  • Residual, general waste in the car park container.
  • Organic waste in the compost container behind the patio. 

The ground-floor bedroom has a waterbed. Because the mattress is a non-standard size, the Dojo-Haus provides an appropriate mattress cover.

♣ The guests bring their bed linen along: two pillow covers and a double duvet cover. Or, hire a bed linen set.

There is a red glassboard on wheels.

♣ The guests bring along their glassboard/whiteboard markers.

Zen garden
There is a zen garden with a cosy zen corner on the mezzanine of the Dojo-Saal. Because the indoor garden does not get much daylight, it is difficult to use real plants. However, we have tried to give it as much zen garden radiation as possible. This quiet corner offers seats, books and the like.
