The Historic Farm Estate with  Bavarian Charm


Gut Sonnenhausen, nestled within a sprawling nature reserve, is not just a place; it’s an embodiment of serenity and an ode to life itself. The estate graces the landscape with rolling hills and serene lakes, extending an invitation to explore, celebrate, and discover the fullness of every moment.

Gut Sonnenhausen beckons visitors to join a community where time is a precious treasure, art fuels the soul, and nature elevates the spirit. The journey began over three decades ago when Georg Schweisfurth and his father, eco-pioneer Karl Ludwig Schweisfurth, ventured into a dense forest in May 1985. What they found amidst the forest’s embrace was a profound peace, a transformative moment that would shape the future.


Emerging from the forest, they were met with the enchanting sight of the estate and its charming farmhouse, shrouded in morning mist, a moment that still resonates today. In 1985, they laid the foundation for Gut Sonnenhausen, an embodiment of beauty, thoughtful encounters, a communion with nature, and the world of art.


Wellness Options

Gut Sonnenhausen offers a unique approach to well-being, emphasizing simplicity, mindful choices, and artful living. The estate provides a serene escape from the chaos of city life, inviting guests to indulge in the splendor of nature and the luxury of quiet moments. 

At Gut Sonnenhausen, the separation between art and life is beautifully blurred. Host Georg Schweisfurth’s philosophy is one of inclusivity, where everyone is encouraged to explore and engage with art, both indoors and outdoors. It’s an openness that invites you to be “strictly open” in your approach to the art and life that surrounds you.

Beyond the artful embrace of Gut Sonnenhausen, a variety of activities beckon to those seeking refuge in nature. Hiking trails lead you through the lush landscape, providing a perfect opportunity to reconnect with the earth and breathe in the fresh air. For those desiring solitude, moments of meditation and reflection await amidst the serene beauty of the estate.


Gut Sonnenhausen’s culinary philosophy is rooted in the belief that food is the foundation of well-being. Their gastronomy and agriculture are certified organic, emphasizing the importance of fresh and wholesome ingredients. Meat consumption is approached consciously, with a “nose-to-tail” philosophy.

This approach ensures that every part of the animal is utilized, allowing for elegant cooking methods like simmering and braising. Host Georg Schweisfurth, a trained master butcher, brings a deep understanding of animal welfare and butchery to the table.

Vegetables, salads, and herbs are harvested from their own garden, guaranteeing freshness and flavor. Any surplus is preserved for the winter, using traditional methods like boiling, fermenting, juicing, drying, and freezing for berries.

Gut Sonnenhausen’s culinary practices, firmly grounded in sustainability and respect for nature, reflect a return to a time when food was not just sustenance but a harmonious connection between nourishment, well-being, and the environment.


Sonnenhausen is nestled in the heart of Bavaria, Germany, making it a perfect destination for travelers seeking a retreat into the countryside.

The estate is surrounded by picturesque villages, rolling hills, and Bavaria’s famous forests, creating an immersive experience in nature.

The charming town of Glonn is nearby, and Munich is just a short drive away, offering the opportunity to explore both the tranquility of rural Bavaria and the vibrant culture of the city.
