Visit the wild boar park  

In summer you can visit the wild boar and their young. On the days when they are being fed it is easy to approach and observe them. For safety reasons, you will be accompanied by a hunter or by the owner, who will also explain what you are seeing. If you are very quiet, you could be lucky enough to see several dozen wild boar less than 20 m away.

(This visit is free and is exclusively for our guests)


Wild boar and deer hunting

In winter (between October and February), those who enjoy hunting can hunt deer or wild boar.  You can either join a group of hunters for the day or buy a seasonal permit which would give you 12 days of hunting. In this type of hunting the hunter remains stationary at a lookout post and the dogs chase the animals. The hunting area extends over 70 hectares and is open for hunting in the morning. In the afternoon hunting takes place in the boar park where you will be guaranteed to bag at least two animals a day.

Hildegard of Bingen



Hildegard of Bingen, 1098-1179, was a visionary and a Benedictine nun, a composer and a 12th century woman of Letters. Her thoughts about diet and food are but a small part of her works.

Here are some extracts from her work “How diet can help with healing” according to HILDEGARD OF BINGEN by Dr. Wighard Strehlow – edition F.X. de Guibert



 « The art of healing by diet » according to HILDEGARD OF BINGEN

 " … Hildegard describes the healing values of food in Physica and her medical treaty Causae et Curea. Nutritional principles had been rediscovered for the first time after the Second World War by Dr. Gottfried Hertzka who applied them successfully to some sick people, even to those extremely ill.

For centuries the diet of most civilisations was essentially comprised of fruit, vegetables and cooked whole cereals.

As people became richer and life more luxurious, so meals became larger, followed by orgies, which contributed to the decline of civilisations such as those of the Greeks and the Romans.

Recent contemporary research confirms what Hildegard wrote 850 years ago, that is, that a balanced diet composed mainly of unrefined grains, fruit and vegetables would help to prevent  40-55% of cancers.

The assessment of Hildegard’s culinary art is at once simple and amazing: with a diet based on unrefined grains, cooked fruit and vegetables one can prevent and cure the majority of illnesses linked to diet, as far as is possible.

This unrefined grain contains all the basic nutrition* that the human body needs to keep it healthy.

The grain (triticum spelta) or spelz in German,  is not a variety of wheat (triticum sativa),

but an ancient cereal that is mentioned in the Bible in the time of Moses (Exodus 9-32).

Dr. Wighard Strehlow recommends eating it three times a day, in different ways: boiled, as a type of rice, put into thick soups, used as a flour in sauces and pastries, and to make bread, in order to stay in, or return to, good health.

Eat only moderate amounts of meat, fish, milk and milk products… »

Hildegard considered strawberries, peaches, plums and leeks to be the “poisons of cooking” that should be avoided as they are responsible for many illnesses.

By contrast however, chestnuts, fennel and quince are highly recommended by Hildegard.

The excesses of diet and drink, which have become a symbol of social success, are paradoxically the main causes of illness.”

*organic proteins, complex carbohydrates, essential minerals, vitamins which protect the organism and olio-elements. Spelt contains amongst other things substances vital for health and protect against illness.
