Animals, Nature, Tradition and Culture

Exclusively for our Clients

Hütteguet Estate

Our country estate, called "Hütteguet", is situated at the entrance to a nature reserve and recreation area on the Lägern, which extends into the canton of Zurich and is ideal for horse riding, biking and hiking. Various forest sections stretch for several kilometres and offer interesting experiences and ideal recreation. The Lägerngrat with its highest point at 880 metres is walked by many hikers from the town of Baden to the medieval Regensberg.

The Granary

Traditionally, the granary served as a treasury and was not just any building: grain was stored in it. If the contents were lost, there would be neither bread nor grain mush, only hunger. Granaries never stood close to the farmhouse so that they would not catch fire in case of fire. But granaries were also not placed too far away from the farmhouse, but kept in sight, usually with a view directly from the farmhouse parlour. The treasury of the farmer's family was particularly interesting for thieves. For apart from grain, farmers also kept all kinds of valuable objects, textiles, documents and other treasures in the granary.

Granaries were often converted into a "Stöckli". A "Stöckli" is a smaller building erected on a farmstead, which was built for the old farmers and served as their home after the farm was handed over to the heirs.

Our granary dates from 1769, and the massive wooden doors and cross beams are still fastened with wooden nails from that time. The granary has three floors, and our clients particularly appreciate the great charm and special ambience of the conference room.
