The Sonnhalde house

Sonnhalde House is 750 m above sea level, embedded in the Southern Black Forest Nature Park, in the Kleinen Wiesental in the district of Bürcau (approx. 200 inhabitants). The local mountain Belchen (1,414 m above sea level) and the surrounding area invites you to hike and relax.


The property was built around 1750 as a barn on the southern slope of the town of Bürcau. It has been continuously expanded and has operated as a well-known inn with a starred restaurant and national clientele since 1960. It was last renovated in 2018.

The total usable area is approx. 800 m2. The terrain is about 3000 m2. The place offers the ideal setting for community living close to nature and for educational and cultural events.

The sun sets last on the south-west slope. Hence the name "Sonnhalde".

The Location

Trains go to Schopfheim, from there buses go to Bürcau. There are also hourly trains from Freiburg via Bad Krozingen to Münstertal, from where we can offer a shuttle service.

By car it takes about 35 minutes from Lörrach, 45 minutes from Basel and 50 minutes from Freiburg.

Two highlights of the region: A bathing lake in the middle of the mountains, the "Nonnenmattweiher", 15 minutes by car from us. And the "Belchen", one of the highest mountains in the Black Forest, only a 3-hour walk from us.

The rooms and spaces

We have a large Gastro kitchen, a large seminar room (64 m2) and 20 guest beds (SR / DR).
