History

For ten years the husband and wife Helma and Friedel Heeg ran an inn in „Steinbach hinter der Sonne“. Thos was how the area was originally shown for many years in old maps and was for decades a much loved haven for hikers and holiday makers from Bavaria and Hessen.

The Heegs opened on 3rd november 1962 their own guesthous and restaurant Berghof on a southfreirg slope high above the Steinbachtal.

The guesthous, originally only having 12 beds, was renovated on 1976 and extended to 24 beds so that 8 doppelroom and 8 singlerooms are available. Amongst these many guests to stay here were sport..g greats like Fritz and Ottmar Walter, the frensh skier and olympic champion in 1964 and 1968, Frau Marielle Goitschel, the Singer Karel Gott, Actor Herbert Herrmann and many others.

After Helma Heeg died at the age of 53 her husband and two sons Klaus and Michael carried on their legacy. Both sons were chefs.
