Our HOFGUT MAISENBURG, high above the Lautertal valley, is surrounded by forests, meadows and waters. They form the natural habitat of red deer and a herd of Albschnucken, which feed on tasty herbs and grasses here. In addition to roe deer, wild boars live on our premises in the middle of the biosphere area.

Meadow fruit

The orchards around HOFGUT MAISENBURG are a special treat all year round. In spring they form a wonderful sea of flowers and food for our bees. In autumn apples, pears and plums ripen. Due to the harsh night climate and the barren soils, the fruits contain more acidity. For this reason, our homemade jam, apple juice and dried fruit are a particularly tasty treat.

Blackthorn are impenetrable and thorny and their fruits are very sour, but in spring they form beautiful ribbons of flowers on our forest edges and are a popular nesting cake for numerous birds. In medicine, they are used to treat loss of appetite, cardiac insufficiency and asthma and are also said to help with fever and inflammation. At HOFGUT MAISENBURG we pick the berries from the thorny branches after the first frost and process them into juice, jelly and delicious sloe gin.


The black elderberry found in our hedges and forests has been a highly regarded shrub since time immemorial - whether as a seat of good house spirits, as an enrichment for the kitchen, or as a universal medicinal plant. Whether bark, roots, leaves, flowers or berries - almost anything can be used. „Elder" helps against colds, hoarseness, coughs and colds. We process the fresh flowers into elderberry syrup and the ripe berries into jam and elder liqueur.


Our orchards, juniper heath and the forest in the middle of the Swabian Alb biosphere area are the nutritional basis of our bees. The result is an exciting composition of very different aromas: the strong scent of blooming apple trees and summer meadows mixes with the tart, spicy aroma of summer forests. The result is a wonderfully aromatic honey that contains only the best of the Swabian Alb.
