Customs House on the Müggenburg
I bid you a warm welcome to the Zollhaus, a former customs house in Müggenburg in the district "Weseloh," which means: meadow woods. For 500 years, this has been a house of hospitality, first serving as a restaurant and inn, when tolls and customs were collected from travellers between Hoya and Bremen. The horses were changed and everybody took a rest before continuing their journey.
The former customs house, the barn, and the bakery and wash house still form an harmonious ensemble. 25 years ago, the houses were fully renovated and converted into apartments. I gave the thatched Zollhaus a fresh overhaul in 2016 and turned it into a unique holiday home.
The Zollhaus offers generous spaces, original design and traditional furnishings in a cozy, contemporary country-house style. It features original beams, oak doors in Frisian blue, a wooden staircase, antique furniture from the homes of my grandparents and great-grandparents, a central fireplace in the former hall, many alcoves and corners with bookshelves and armchairs. The apartments offers cozy common spaces for spending time together and many a nook to curl up in peace with a good book.
The apartment sleeps 6 adults. Extra rooms and beds are available upon request.
