Biohotel Pausnhof****

St. Oswald, Bayern

“To do or not to do––it is completely up to you!”
In the Pausnhof (Courtyard of Rest), comfort is viewed through the eyes of the artist, luxury has a different quality. The Simmet family once founded Germany’s first eco hotel in the middle of the oldest protected area of Germany, the Bavarian Forest State Park. Here, where stress is just a faint memory, we run a 100% organic environment in the rooms, in the kitchen, in the garden––and everywhere in between.

The Pausnhof gardens, situated in the heart of the former St. Oswald monastery town, have been cultivated for more than 600 years, today just as carefully as ever. For us, the Pausnhof is not just a business, but a the philosophy of respect for art and creation.

Enjoyment and culinary delights

In the Pausnhof we cook with passion: The kitchen team Johann Simmet, Simon Hackl and Johanna Simmet create delicious food from farmyard and bio-certified, preferential regional ingrediants. It is their great passion and pleasure to produce simple, subtle, delicious food from pure nature, which makes every four-course evening dinner into a culinary sensation. For our vegan guests we offer plant based alternatives for all meals.

Wellness and beauty

The Pausnhof invites you to slow down and be completely free of your normal routine. Then the day isn’t a strain – instead, our guests live life in bliss. The Pausnhof offers a variety of amenities, whether it is the newly-designed Finnish sauna area, the circulatory friendly bio sauna, the herbal steam bath, the 36-degree saltwater pool, the natural swimming pool, a soothing massage or some expert cosmetic treatment. All of these come with the deep silence of the forest and restore you to perfect balance.

Living and rooms

The Biohotel Pausnhof has created inspiring living spaces with natural, high-quality, regional-style materials and design. The Bavarian Forest lives in our interiors. The furniture and interior designer Franz Hafner concepted all our interiors. Our furniture, made from regional woods, is not only comfortable, but also smells naturally sumptuous. All our interiors are locally produced. In 2016, our recent extension complex was nominated for the prestigious “artouro” Bavarian Tourism Architecture Award.
