Welcome to our webpage and we look forward to meeting you.

 

Good things everywhere, the best are in our Orchard.

About us

Many of us know the feeling - you just walk around the place that you consider the most beautiful in the world but it is not for sale or simply too expensive. Endurance and belief always bring positive results so we can share our ideas of this awesome place with everyone who wishes to.

Our name "Orchard above the Klinger lake" grasps its basic pros. The rooms are situated in a sun-drenched orchard just above Klinger lake on its south bank. Wake up in the morning and you are overlooking the lake and surrounding fir forest. The lake water, it's crystal clear and amazing green colour, reflects the forest and lake depth. Either you choose to spend the day by the lake or in the privacy of the orchard in a hammock you will certainly have a pleasant day.

In the evening when people come home or to the town hotels, you don't have to go anywhere. You can enjoy the sunset sitting in our terrace and then you either have a garden barbecue or lie down on the grass and watch stars. It is a different experience, indeed.

Every marketing manual principally states: distinguish yourselves from your competitors. Highlight your uniqueness. Though, it might be tough at times. We do not have to think about it for long, although Banská Štiavnica offers many accommodation opportunities.

 

We are the only guest house combining more options:

- we are placed right in these breathtaking natural surroundings
- our garden overlooks the lake beach
- the orchard area provides enough privacy for everybody
- unique south orientation offers enough sun during the day and a number of trees offer enough shade when needed
- organic fruit is available for every customer during the harvest season
- places for building a tent are available as well
- if you are feeling romantic, you can sleep on hay and spend the night under the stars and by a fire

What is more:

- a 15 minute pleasant walk gets you to the city centre
- if it seems too much, take a 3 minutes ride by car or a very cheap taxi
- a 5 minute ride (2 km) to the Salamandra ski centre in winter

There are many other opportunities and activities for relaxation and you can find them in the Section "Relax and activities"

Or do you know what is even better? Just come to visit us. Let's talk about them and enjoy them.

Relax and activities

1. New Castle

The most significant town's symbol, a simple but attractive fort eracted on a easily recognized peak visible from any place in the town.

- a little scary due to its legends from the 16th century

6. Mining Academy and Botanical garden

Štiavnica did not only become famous because of its precious metals mined here but also due to the highly recognized Mining Acadmy that became the first field university in the world - from 1762.

Options: a short walk under the trees of the botanical garden will give you a nice day and refresh your soul.

7. Kammerhof and Mining Museum

A huge complex of buildings used to be the administrative center for the whole mining industry in the region.

3. Calvary

A unique historical monument, a baroque sacral complex of chapels and churches built on a conical hill providing an overview on the town and its surrounding area. The complex was greatly damaged in the past but it has been restored for the past several years and due to this it has become a rising star of the town.

Within the Calvary: a small exhibition on Calvary's history, an observation tower

8. Water reservoirs (so-called “tajch”) around the town

These reservoirs were built to collect rain water that further ran devices and machines used in mines. Today these reservoirs are used for recreation.

An unusual column of the Holy Trinity in the middle of the square is surrounded by burgher houses/palaces.
