Your Holiday Home in the Odenwald

Your Home

The Wallacher Hirtenhaus (Shepherds House) is an ideal place for outdoor activities and short trips between Frankfurt and Heidelberg.

The holiday house offers enough space for longer stays with 8om² on two floors. Together with the fenced garden this is a perfect home for dogs and their owners.

It is only 3 steps to the ground floor. Here you find a open living area with tiled stove, cosy corner seat, kitchen and the bathroom.

On the first floor you find a living-bedroom abd the loggia.

The sun is shining on the loggia in spring, in summer the wine leaves provide half-shade. In the garden  a lime tree plays with light and shadow.

The Landscape

Odenwald - Odins forest. This is

 a specially varied landscape with vast forests divided by fertile valleys. Truely made for a god - or simple for everybody looking for recreation outdoors.


In this varied landscape interested observers see - beside the common - some rare plants and animals (for example, white helleborine, spotted salamander).


Numerous hills are crowned by romantic castles - often providing a panorama view.  


A rarity are the wines of the "Odenwälder Weininsel". Try to stroll through Groß-Umstadt and taste the racier Riesling or the fruity red wine.







From the "Wallbacher Hirtenhaus" you can start your hiking tour directly. After few minutes you are in the middle of the Odenwald.


It is a starting point for cyclists too. Whether steep up- and downhill or  cruising along the valleys - almost everything is possible.


The castle of Frankenstein, the castle of Auerbach and the "Veste Otzberg" are just some of many destinations which are reachable by a short drive. Particularly beautiful - a shipping on the Main river nearby the historical city Miltenberg.


In case of bad weather we recommend a visit to the nearby Odenwald-Therme (Spa).

The restaurants in the nearby places and small towns offer a good regional cuisine at reasonable prices.
