holiday apartment “Ott”

The guest and holiday apartment is very cozy and cozy – its own and completely separate entrance gives the impression of having your own house and access. Ideal for 2-4 people and, after consultation, also with your four-legged friend.
La Maisonette de la forge
In the middle of the sleepy village of Jaegerthal, this charming Alsatian house is located in the immediate vicinity of the ruins of the former forge “de Dietrich”. It was from here that the steel industry took its course more than 350 years ago. The half-timbered house framed by the two canals of the Schwarzbach is thus part of this industrial monument. This house once served as a payhouse; this is where the wages for the employees of the forge were paid out at the end of the week.
This chalet can be rented immediately by guests of Domaine Jaegerthal. Whether for a picnic with family or friends, a romantic getaway | an evening with your loved ones or simply as a destination for a hike to fortify yourself with delicious, lovingly prepared dishes from the region.
Enjoy your vacation or your stay in my “little paradise”.
The Domaine Jaegerthal is located in the town of the same name in northern Alsace, only a few kilometers from Niederbronn les Bains, Bitche and Lembach. The romantic property with the guest house – once the old village school – and the turbine house (I call it the mill) is picturesquely framed by the Schwarzbach and its pond and has an almost paradisiacal character. Not only my guests, I also find peace here from the fast-paced everyday life, which has made the domaine my refuge and is my unique source of strength to this day.
The former parish and school house “Maison d’ Ecole” from 1854 was completely renovated in 2005 and with mainly old building materials to become today’s guest house with its cozy holiday / guest apartment “Ott” and the more elegant “Bel Etage”, the larger one Area in the Maison d’ Ecole remodeled.
The individual furnishings with selected antiques also contain modern aspects and “should make my guests and customers feel at home with me! My passion for contemporary art is reflected in many corners of the entire domain in addition to my responsibility towards traditional family objects. The spacious, park-like outdoor area – the calling card of my work – invites you to linger and relax!

The Domaine Jaegerthal is also for me “Michael Veith” a magical place where I can let my creativity run free, it is my source of strength and think tank. This is where most of my gardens are created, this is where I receive my customers, discuss the ideas I have worked out and let my visitors share in my love for nature.
Holidays with your four-legged friend
Happy four-legged friends at Domaine Jaegerthal
When is a dog happy – certainly when the master is happy too.
You too can discover the love for an unspoilt and natural northern Alsace region that is still spared from tourism and is unknown to us. Here you will find my very personal tips and recommendations on typical Alsatian gastronomy and the sights in the area.
Film and photo backdrop
My Maison de la Turbine – alias Mill – with its extensive park and unique orangery is ideal for an extraordinary film and photo backdrop. The elegant, former school and parsonage, as well as the former hunting and forest house of a noble family in the middle of nature offer a very special charm and unimagined possibilities.
The steel dynasty “de Dietrich” had its origins here more than 350 years ago.
In what is now the park of Domaine Jaegerthal, the first blast furnace and a small hammer from the company de Dietrich were located until the end of the 19th century.
Concerts and events
With the temporary art exhibitions, summer festivals and the show garden of the Domaine Jaegerthal, the hamlet “Jaegerthal” developed into a cultural gem. For more than three years now, concerts, opera performances and theater events have also taken place during the summer months in the old forge “Forge du Jaegerthal” dating back to 1684.
Le Parc du Domaine Jaegerthal
The park of the Domaine Jaegerthal, or rather the spacious garden, with its old trees flows smoothly into the adjacent forest.
When designing this, my garden, the focus was on respecting, taking up and skillfully underlining the realities of nature. In my opinion, I have succeeded in underlining these conditions through targeted garden design. Solitary trees from well-known tree nurseries complete the picture and give the park its very special touch. Here you can discover trees that I also use in my customers’ gardens. Some people don’t believe their eyes!
A special kind of park – for art and culture in harmony with nature – designed by Michael Veith – with solitary trees from nurseries you can trust.
Who can “simply”, the eye for the beautiful is given.
Are you planning a family celebration, a company event, a seminar or a small symposium?
Our charming orangery is embedded in nature in a picturesque way. It is located in the natural park of Domaine Jaegerthal on the banks of the Schwarzbach, which crosses the area romantically. From a cultural and historical point of view, this place is very special, as the origin of the iron ore dynasty “de Dietrich” lies here. This glass house is available for rent exclusively to our house guests for special occasions.
Art in the park
Living, as well as designed, modern, contemporary and informal art in the park of Domaine Jaegerthal
Sculptures, objects and bonsai by well-known and young artists find the ideal backdrop in the park and in the orangery of Domaine Jaegerthal.
The park and the orangery offer artists an ideal exhibition space. Changing exhibitions and vernissages present, in addition to my private collection, art for the house and garden.
Collection & creativity
Creativity knows no bounds
Not only for the park of Domaine Jaegerthal, but also for the gardens of my customers, I design furniture, such as the comfortable lounge chairs made of oak or the handmade, unique birdhouses.
Birdhouses of a special kind
A bird house like no other – a dream for birds and humans
Of course, you can admire the bird houses on your next stay in our little paradise, choose your copy and take it with you right away. Maybe it’s a special kind of gift idea, not just for Christmas?
A tree of life goes on a journey
A dream tree for the park of Domaine Jaegerthal
My enthusiasm and love for large and even larger trees is well known. It is also known that my passion is to change the park of Domaine Jaegerthal from time to time, to beautify it and to enrich it with beautiful trees. A 45-year-old, 12-meter-high tree of life (thuja) found a beautiful, exposed place in the park of Domaine Jaegerthal.
Bonsai senior residence
Estate management in the park of Domaine Jaegerthal
Your bonsai in the best hands …
Even after my active time at the Bonsai Center and Museum in Heidelberg, I maintained very personal contact with my “old bonsai customers”. Many of these bonsai are in my care from time to time, be it for a revision, redesign or for long-term care.
my gardens | solitary trees
Planning and realizing gardens means pure creativity and is my passion. In my opinion, a garden should actually grow, which cannot be accelerated with a lot of money, time pressure or even power. It is particularly important to me that the project to be implemented appeals to me and that I get a free hand from the client so that I can live out my creativity. The most exciting gardens, yes, true works of art, come about when people trust me in terms of my creativity. Specifications or unfounded price negotiations are often counterproductive and repeatedly cause me to reject even very attractive projects.
My gardens are not created on the PC; my ideas mature with every visit and inspection of the garden to be designed, whereby the discussions with the customers are just as important. No matter how big the building project is, I always put myself in the role of my client and plan a garden as if it were my own. Based on the ideas put on paper, living works of art are created in collaboration with a professional horticulturist of my choice.
Discover details – this motto runs through my entire work and design.
Veith gardens are rather reduced and impress with their clear structure and impressive details, such as solitary, shaped trees, boulders and art. …
Be it a modern, clearly structured, classic, Japanese-style house garden or an industrial project, it is always my greatest endeavor to create gardens that appear natural and do not appear artificial to the viewer! Only when a garden gives the impression that it has always existed in this form and looks like a grown total work of art to the viewer – only then is a garden perfect for me …
I got what you are looking for …. Your dream tree
Below you can see a small selection of special trees, as I select them in the nursery of my confidence exclusively for my customers. According to my specifications, remarkable solitary trees are already designed in the nursery Lorenz von Ehren – thus I, respectively my customers, have selected trees in a unique and exciting growth form at my disposal. Living works of art for your dream garden…

Support in the realization of creative gardens by Michael Veith
My goal is to create gardens and landscapes as if Mother Nature was at work. A garden that is perfect for me blends in unobtrusively and as naturally as possible into the environment, without appearing artificial or even appearing as a foreign body …
