The summer house was built in 1912 by the Berlin-based concert singer Helene Siegfried. For years she collected parts of former farmhouses, tools and artworks from the Black Forest region for her house. The low roof, the cosy rooms with the beautifully painted wardrobes and cupboards, the historical doors and floors make the house the architectonic masterpiece. Tiled stoves, furniture, watches, embroideries and wood carvings as well as glass paintings, pictures and china are displayed in their original surrounding.

The “Hüsli” (small house) grants insight into the so-called good old times and the way people lived in this region in bygone centuries. It also reflects the perception of a summer vacation, of country life as envisaged by the bourgeoisie of the big cities just after 1900. The “Hüsli” became famous due to the television series “Die Schwarzwaldklinik” (The Black Forest Clinic) in which it starred as home to the main character Professor Brinkmann.
