A warm welcome!

The Gerberhaus is a modern holiday home in the heart of the Volcanic Eifel. With space for up to 7 people, it is ideal for small groups or for families who want to enjoy their holiday relaxed in their own four walls. In addition, stylish straw boarding/storage with bath/shower, and lounge. Ideal for stage hikers on the Eifelsteig/Lieserpfad and guests looking for a simple place to stay overnight.

The Gerberhaus is part of an old farmstead in the area of the castle town of Manderscheid. Quiet and yet centrally located, you will stay here on the spacious property with inner courtyard and garden.
Families will appreciate the large property and the many play possibilities, hiking or mountain bike groups the central location in the heart of the Volcanic Eifel.

The special layout allows for flexible use of the Gerberhaus:
You can choose between a double room with its own shower and toilet, a holiday flat for 5 people or the entire house - just as you need it!

Yard & Garden:
The Gerberhaus is part of the large property - with old farmhouse, barn with straw boarding house, 2 separate courtyards, large meadow, vegetable garden and garden house. Cyclists and mountain bikers can safely store their bikes and also wash them after a "wild tour".
Families with children especially enjoy the garden and courtyard with play facilities (trampoline, slide, table tennis table), and the large courtyard area for playing and romping. The garden is not available to overnight guests of the Strohlager.

The animals of the Gerberhaus:
There are always animals to pet on the property, such as rabbits or poultry.
Just outside Manderscheid there is another farm building where the flock of sheep and our two Icelandic horses live, who are happy to be stroked.
Direct location on the Eifelsteig and Lieserpfad. Ideal starting point for circular walks and day tours in the Volcanic Eifel. Gastronomy on site.
