Welcome to Waltersdorf- Zittauer Gebirge - Upper Lusatia
Our house was built in 1879 and is a "Umgebindehaus". The unique and typical contruction of the Umgebindehaus is that it consists of a wooden part, called Blockstube and a stone section. Together they carrie the upper floor, which is composed of half-timbered walls bearing the turtelroof. These special houses are only found in this country triangle; Germany, Czech Republic and Poland.
The house was formerly occupied by several families: one family living in the Blockstube and a single lady in the stone part of the house. They shared the spacious hall, the simple and small bathroom and toilet.
Since June 2007 we are renovating the house. In the stone section. we have a modern kitchen now, with dishwasher, oven, refrigerator, freezer, microwave and cooker.
Also in this part of the house a luxurious bathroom with a washbasin, shower and toilet. In the backhouse we have retained.the small, old, original toilet and bathroom. The cozy living room with tiled stove is located in the wooden part of the ground floor (the Erdgeschoss). The living room has a TV, radio and a CD- and DVD player. You can relaxe in the lovely lounge sofa and have a good meal with family or friends at the big dining table
Upstaires, in the "Obergeschoss" are 3 large bedrooms: 1 bedroom with double bed and two rooms with twin beds. There is also a childrens- bed present.

Wij, Frank en Josée Mol hebben het huis gekocht in juni 2007. Wij zijn verliefd geworden op de lieflijke en soms ook ruige omgeving, de vriendelijke mensen en de bijzondere dorpjes met Umgebindehauser. De nabijheid van Dresden en Praag waren zeker ook een goede reden om dit deel van Duitsland beter te willen leren kennen.We hebben nog geen seconde spijt gehad van onze keuze. In 8jaar tijd hebben we al een groot deel van het huis gerenoveerd met respect voor de historie en de sfeer van het huis. Ons laatste project was het opknappen van de tuin, waar we nu een heerlijke lounge-plek hebben gecreëerd.
