Finally, spring has sprung and, with it, your yearning for a change of pace. How wonderful then, that our establishments in beautiful Germany lie in such varied locations and can thus offer you practically everything imaginable:
Chiemgau is an ancient cultural landscape located between the rivers Inn, Alz and Traun, and is very much the epitome of what people envision when they think of Bavaria. Barely another area in Germany has inspired as many poets and painters as the Chiemgau. Nature lovers and culture aficionados alike all find precisely what their heart desires: mountains, lakes, abbeys, onion-dome towers, quaint inns and so much more.
Schloss Amerang greets you with 8 guestrooms and a top-notch cultural program. Horse fans will be particularly delighted by their PRE stud farm.
The Black Forest is Germany’s biggest self-contained expanse of forest and, at elevations around 1500 m above sea level, is also the country’s highest upland area. Its name derives from the dark coniferous forest consisting of 80% spruce and pine trees. More than 20,000 km of hiking paths are guaranteed to whet the appetite of avid hikers. Numerous special events, museums and sightseeing attractions provide the perfect finishing touches.
Landhaus Mühle in Schluchsee is an idyllic retreat plucked from the pages of a picture book. With its 10 rooms, the restaurant in the “Kuhstall” and a small spa, unforgettable feel-good moments are guaranteed.
An array of resonant names, and each town more beautiful than the last: here, we encounter the very definition of being “spoiled for choices”. Whether in the historic small city of Heidelberg, at an old winery or along the banks of the Rhine, outstanding hospitality and exceptional cuisine always take center stage.
Das Lamm in Heidelberg is Germany’s oldest wine tavern, now also offering overnight accommodations.
Romantik Hotel Schloss Rheinfels in St. Goar is enthroned high above the Rhine, not far from the legendary Lorelei. It treats you to breathtaking views as well as spacious rooms and wellness facilities, while Hotel Kronenschlösschen in Eltville-Hattenheim, a hideaway on the opposite shore, has developed into a popular, well-known gathering spot for gourmets.
The 27 km-long Edersee in Hessen is surrounded by extended forests of beech trees, idyllic villages, fields and meadows. Numerous hiking paths with evocative names such as the “Bat Path”, “Gnarly Oak Trail” and the “Stargazer Path” invite you to set out and explore. Meanwhile, the Forest Canopy Path and the Virgin Forest Path guarantee beautiful views.
Schloss Waldeck treats you to stunning scenery, built on a rock 220 m above the Edersee, with restaurants, wellness area, a Knights Hall, its own registry office and a castle museum.
Mecklenburg-Vorpommern is famous for its endless expanses, numerous castles and stately homes, pretty towns and, of course, the Baltic. Schlosshotel Wendorf is a luxury hotel located in the Sternberg Lake District, dedicated to exquisite enjoyment and the game of golf. And if you are drawn by the call of the sea, you should certainly inquire about taking out the hotel’s own yacht, the Skythia!
