Geographically, Zeihen is located right in the middle between Basel and Zurich and is nestled in rolling hills at the end of the Tafeljura in the upper Fricktal. For hikes and bike tours, it is a paradise here with many possibilities. From the local mountain, the Homberg, you can see the Black Forest and as far as the Vosges on a clear day.
Your camp at Chalet Siebenschläfer is located in the Eichwald area, 2 km above the village, at the end of a small dirt road. At your disposal is electricity and water supply and the direct surroundings of the chalet with various seating options, including a covered terrace and a fireplace. Note for your information: In approx. 300m distance there is a pigsty. Depending on the weather, temperature and wind, you can smell anything from nothing, a light scent breeze to a stronger smell - unfortunately it is impossible to predict what will come when and how long it will last. In a similar distance is a military firing range that can be unoccupied for weeks at a time, as well as used on a weekly basis. The shooting dates are only posted at very short notice.
Idyllic place under beautiful trees where you come to rest. The covered seating area was helpful and the communication was best.

Beautiful, sunny relaxing place in the middle of nature. Very nice view over the hilly landscape of Zeihen/Herznach. Good starting point to explore the area by bike (tip: bird park Ambigua in Zeihen). On the place has everything it needs. It is a pity that we were not allowed to use the shower (would have been a boon in the current hot weather; in a pinch, one helps oneself with the water hose;-). Bénédicte has prepared everything tip-top and was always available via Nomady. The only small drawback is the smell of the pigsty, depending on the wind, which is sometimes penetrating noticeable. All in all, however, a beautiful place that we can recommend. We were not the last time here:-)! LG Tom & Maya

The location of Chalet Dormouse is very attractive: shady, beautiful trees, very nice view of the soft hilly landscape, generous fields and wide forests, sunny from morning to evening with spectacular sunsets, easily accessible and yet the greatest possible privacy, attractive trails for hiking and biking in the immediate vicinity, always surprising perspectives on the topography and the scattered hamlets. Bénédicte has prepared everything very well. The exchange via the Nomady homepage was uncomplicated, the personal contact on site open and cordial. The fifth star is missing because of the pigsty smell, which is perceived as annoying depending on the wind direction, and because in terms of infrastructure in the sanitary area a development would enhance the otherwise great offer. Thank you Bénédicte! Evelyne and Jürg

Quiet and beautiful pitch in the middle of nature. Super starting point for hikes or with the bike. Nice there are people who share such a beautiful place with us campers. Many thanks to Bénédicte for the detailed description. We will be very happy to come back... Markus, Susana & Roxy

All in all a very nice place, we had a lot of fun exploring the area with the kids. The dear Benedicte takes care of everything very well and is always accommodating.

We had wonderful and relaxing days at Chalet Siebenschläfer. We will be happy to come back! This place has many pluses for all weather conditions: Fire bowl with wood was top, (wind) shade of the trees, a sunny place in front of the house until sunset, dry shelter to eat. Everything is very lovingly and thoughtfully furnished, as well as very clean. The smell of pigs made itself felt every now and then, we always knew from which direction the wind came:-) Discovering the surrounding area with the Bruderhöhle Effingen and the Linner waterfall is well doable with preschoolers on foot and beautiful. Many thanks Bénédicte for this beautiful place and also for the pleasant and speedy communication. It was just perfect.

I was there for the second time and it was again super nice. Everything you need (electricity, water, toilet, wood,...; camping at a high level), plenty of space with a view and a lot of peace. Even the rain has made us thanks to the covered terrace nothing. A big thank you to the great hosts. We come again with pleasure.
Kristin A•September 2021•
An exceptionally beautiful place. Even by Nomady standards. Quiet, located in wonderful surroundings. Everything you need. We will be back...highly recommend the Ochsen restaurant in Oberziehen.

The 3 days at the chalet were wonderful. The covered sitting area was worth its weight in gold in very rainy weather. Everything is very loving and Bénédicte a great hostess! Many thanks
Dorothee M•August 2021•
A beautiful place, alone in the green! Beautiful view and quiet! Smell from the pigs we had only very little, shooting noise also! Too bad that the shower may not be used and there is no possibility to wash up. Price at the very upper limit. But still very recommendable! Quite possible that we come again! Thank you!
Claudia H•July 2021•
Great pitch with a fantastic view. The covered seating area is very cozy and practical in rainy weather. We got the pigsty depending on the wind direction, but is very well bearable. Grill and fire bowl are well equipped, the Wc very clean, the whole arrival / departure is uncomplicated and well thought out. Come with pleasure again!
Sarah H•July 2021•
We were delighted with this idyllic place the peace and view was the highlight we will be back. Thank you to the innkeeper who keeps it so lovingly in good shape.
Markus R•July 2021•
The place is brilliant! Super nice location and total peace. That you can use the toilet in the chalet is great. Also the fire bowl and the fireplace directly at the chalet are practical and in perfect condition. There are numerous bike and hiking trails in the area. If the weather does not cooperate, it has a great shelter which you can use. From time to time you could smell the neighbor's pigs, but this was not disturbing. Bénédicte is totally uncomplicated and nice. We had a great, long weekend and will definitely come again once :)

Beautiful, idyllic retreat with super view! We really enjoyed our weekend at Chalet Siebenschläfer. There are many walking and hiking opportunities in the immediate area. We were very glad for the many shady spot options in these hot temperatures. The contact with Bénédicte was perfect and cordial - thank you very much!
Janine B•June 2021•
A beautiful, idyllic place with many small details (many chairs, dining table, side table, even self-created brochure with excursion ideas, map of the region, etc.) to relax from the stress of everyday life. Bénédicte thinks of everything and is a very accommodating, generous and uncomplicated hostess. So that our boys could move a little around the chalet, she even mowed a little grass in advance. Be sure to take tick spray with you. All in all a wonderful experience. Thank you very much!
Ramona B•June 2021•
Super Plarz with beautiful view. Gladly once again
Hans-Jörg W•June 2021•
An absolutely idyllic camp, looked after by a very helpful and uncomplicated hostess with whom there was already in advance a top communication! For our small caravan and our 2 dogs, the place has been super suitable. The occasional smell of pigs from the neighboring farm has not bothered us and the shooting range was fortunately not used during our stay ;) Absolutely recommendable, we come very happy times again :-)
Jens-Christoph M•June 2021•
Already on arrival, we were warmly welcomed by various small personal attentions. It is a dreamlike place - perfect for relaxing. Ideal starting point for various destinations. Bénédicte is a perfect Nomady hostess - many thanks to you - very happy to come back ;-)) Dear regards Manuela, Brige & Dani

A sooo great place! Everything as described..unfortunately, because of the very rainy and cold weather, we could use almost exclusively the sheltered sitting area with fireplace, but this was our salvation ..and of course the pleasant, cleanToilet room...we had a cool weekend! ..without the smell of pigs. We arrived with 2 very small caravans, that went well, with caravans over 6m long it's difficult, the short slope on departure with four-wheel no problem, despite quite softened ground. Bénédicte is completely uncomplicated and very nice, she offered to turn on the boiler that we have at least warm water in the cold! Many thanks Bénédicte for your kindness, Kirsten&René with Luke, Denise&Werner and a few paws.

Growing up in Aarau, I would never have thought that one day I would be vacationing in such a beautiful place in the immediate vicinity! This place is an absolute dream for a little nahreise time out. It's not cheap, but thanks to the barbecue bowl, firewood and shelter, it's a wonderful place to stay even on mucky days. The electricity connection is practical. WC in the chalet great. A warm shower would be the icing on the cake. Some smell of pork in the air, but no problems. And the military was fortunately not on the firing range nearby. Bénédicte's communication/organization is quick and totally straightforward. Thank you! We will be happy to come again!

Thank you so much for making this great stay possible for our small travel group. The place is simply fantastic. The infrastructure leaves almost nothing to be desired. We were able to enjoy both the sun and the fantastic view and retreat in the cool evenings but also in the cozy shelter. We will definitely come again.
Sandra G•April 2021•
We have spent two wonderful days here in the cold and rather nasty weather. But this could not harm us, because the infrastructure is excellent (various covered seating, electricity at the site, fire bowl, bathroom in the chalet, etc. just a pity that the shower can not be used despite existing). The autumn atmosphere on the site and in the surrounding forests has enchanted us. We thank Bénédicte from the bottom of our hearts for this dreamlike place and the pleasant and uncomplicated communication.
Bettina G•October 2020•
We spent two wonderful days at this dreamlike place. We really enjoyed the tranquility and the beautiful sunsets. Very great location for hiking in the area. The infrastructure is as described. We thank Bénédicte for the uncomplicated Buchun. We can highly recommend the place. We will be happy to come again.

A beautiful, quiet place that you have to yourself. Pure relaxation...
Fiona C•September 2020•
A beautiful place in the middle of nature and a magnificent view. Easy to find thanks to the good directions. Very pleasant is also the Stomanschluss directly at the place and the toilet use. For us a small drop of bitterness: the place is not so suitable for the large motorhomes (slope on the way). But for smaller "Büssli" he is very recommendable!
Antoinette G•September 2020•
A beautiful place, everything as described, come back with pleasure
Laurent M•August 2020•
It was beautiful, magical sunsets and moon view. Bénédicte has welcomed us very friendly and explained everything, thank you very much. The price-performance ratio could still be optimized if the existing shower could also be used Sincerely Monique and Geru

A really nice place where we liked it very much. We were traveling with an old VW bus and had no problems at all, either in getting there or parking. The infrastructure is exactly as described. Water (nice and cold) can be fetched behind the chalet (or piped to the pitch) and electricity is right by the pitch, which is super handy. It was very hot and therefore we were glad to be able to use the shelter (= shade) right by the fireplace. Bénédicte is very helpful and answered all our questions by return of post. Thanks for that! We will be happy to come back and highly recommend the place.
Bettina W•August 2020•
Super quiet with a beautiful view. The use of the grill and seating is super. Very nice host!!!
