The central entrance door is only locked from the inside using the rotary knob.

In the kitchen
Delonghi fully automatic coffee machine
The fully automatic coffee machine is usually operated with whole beans. You can also add a single spoonful of ground coffee to the small filling chute in the middle. Empty the coffee grounds container into the organic waste and rinse the container with clear water.
Should the coffee maker need a descaling, we ask for a note on the feedback sheet.
The water in Todtnauberg is very soft. That's why we operate the dishwashers without salt and rinse aids. Appropriate additives are already contained in sufficient quantities in the dishwasher tablets.
If the dishwasher in the kitchen does not have electricity, check whether the mains disconnector for the dishwasher is switched off in the entrance area next to the sub-distributor.
In the living room
The hanging chair is designed for a maximum of 130 kg. For safety reasons, it may only be operated on the rotary hook provided for this purpose! Use is expressly at your own risk. Before using the chair, make sure that the suspension and the armchair are in order and that they are not damaged. Avoid strong swing and turn.
