Otterhaus - environmental friendly and natural

Why Otterhaus? Well, firstly, the operators are called Ott - so the name was obvious and, secondly, we also like the otter, who again should also have a home in the Palatinate, where he used to live in the brooks and ponds in former times.

The Otterhaus was completed in 2017 and is modern, but consciously also environmentally friendly. It is a house on so-called Holzständerbauweise - so it meets the requirements of the KfW 70 standard - and except for the base plate, no concrete is used. During the building-up as much attention was paid to environmentally friendly or durable materials. The house and the service water are heated with a photothermal system (optionally a gas boiler can be switched on during bad weather conditions) and the electricity is produced by a photovoltaic system
Also in the garden design care was taken to ensure that native plants were used, which are particularly valuable for insects. Only in the Asian corner are a few exotics, which is due to the Vietnamese origin of the manager.

Since July 2019 we are also official partner of the transboundary biosphere reserve Palatinate Forest - Vosges Du Nord.
