The STUDIOLO – vacation apartment with 80 m2 in a half-timbered house from 1582

For up to three people aged twelve and over.

The owner of the Arnstadt Town House from 1720 to 1747 was Johann Christoph Olearius, theologian, historian and numismatist. Olearius wrote numerous books, including the Historia Arnstadtiensis. A numismatist and collector of rarities, he created a baroque chamber of curiosities, whose workrooms were called studiolo.

The SEWING ROOM – loft apartment with 200 m2 in the factory building from 1904

For up to four people.

The first floor of the factory of today’s Stadthaus Arnstadt was the sewing room of the glove manufactory Julius Möller Arnstadt until 1991. Four-meter ceiling height and lighting through large windows from all sides allowed the seamstresses to work together.

Today this room, the largest of the Stadthaus Arnstadt, is multifunctionally dedicated to living, cooking and eating, meetings and workshops, art, music and literature.

A restored STEINWAY grand piano from 1917 can be used by skilled players. Also available are three historic painters easels.
The large bathroom will also be usable as a black and white laboratory with two enlargers up to 4X5 inch format.

A very well-equipped kitchen with a mobile cooking block and a four-meter table are available to guests of the loft. However, the kitchen is also suitable for joint cooking in the context of meetings or targeted – incl. Cooking courses – to book for team building.

Living and sleeping in formerly industrially used rooms is a special experience.

The high-quality box-spring beds are modern, but they sit on the original magnesite screeds and between period windows and handcrafted brickwork.

The sewing room is for rent from a stay of one week. Price on request.
