The Eisvogel hotel and spa is located in Lower Bavaria in the heart of the Hallertau region, which is famous for growing hops. This 4-star hotel, run by the Zettl-Feldmann family, is situated in the outskirts of the village and close to the River Abens. It has a long standing tradition and boasts a 7,000 m² garden surrounded by mature trees. 

Hallertau hops, known as Halltertau Hopfen in German, are an essential part of the HopfenWell concept. Although traditionally Hallertau hops are used in the brewery industry, the health benefits are increasingly being appreciated for its soothing effect.  The Eisvogel wellness area offers various treatments that use hops like a calming hops oil bath, a relaxing cream wrap or a hops salt exfoliation, which encourages the skin to become taut. The Eisvogel spa’s guests can additionally discover other natural remedies from the region like sulphuric and thermal spring water. A wellness treatment programme can be individually tailored to suit guests’ needs.

The 1,600m² Eisvogel spa, with its views across the banks of the River Danube, is an ideal place for a relaxed holiday. It has an indoor pool, an infrared sauna, Finnish sauna, salt steam bath and a gym in the bath house. 

Pure enjoyment is the motto of the distinctive Eisvogel cuisine. Even food and drink enthusiasts across the Bad Gögging border appreciate the typical Bavarian country house style cooking. Regional and seasonal ingredients are selected to create classic Bavarian specialities. During the spring, guests can try the home grown asparagus and strawberries from the farm and in summer there are an abundance of home grown fruit and vegetables on offer. 

Wellness & Spa

The Eisvogel wellness hotel has a spa area of about 1,600m², which includes 15 treatment rooms, two of which are spacious spa suites. The 12 x 6m indoor pool overlooks the banks of the River Danube and includes water jets for resistance swimming. There are also a variety of saunas like a Finnish sauna, salt steam bath and an infrared sauna as well as a well-equipped gym. 


In addition to the more classic beauty treatments on offer at the Eisvogel hotel, you can also discover something a bit different with a natural sulphuric bath, a natural mud moor wrap or a hops bath. 

Cosmetic treatments are also available like Botox or procedures using hyaluronic acid filler. All treatments are carried out after a thorough consultation and under professional supervision of a doctor. 


The Eisvogel hotel has a 36m² gym area - including 4 endurance machines, 1 power machine and a studio for classes.

The Abusina Roman Fort

The Abusina Fort in Eining dates back to Roman times and was part of the Limes that ran throughout Europe along the Rhine and Danube rivers. Nowadays, the entire Limes is a UNESCO World Heritage site.  

River cruises on the Danube and Altmühl rivers.

Cruise boats regularly run back and forth between Kelheim and the Weltenburg Abbey between April and November where you can take in the stunning Danube gorge as well as the Altmühl valley.

The Weltenburg Abbey

The Weltenburg Abbey is a Benedictine monastery and is located near to the entrance of the impressive Danube Gorge (Donaudurchbruch in German). It was founded in around 600 AD by the monks of St. Columbanus and is the oldest monastery in Bavaria. You can also visit the Baroque church or the beer garden, which is the perfect spot to relax and sample the local Bavarian cuisine.

Conservation area Weltenburger Enge

Go by boat to capture the best view of the gorge!  This beautiful 5 km stretch of the River Danube meanders through the gorge with its chalk rocks, which stand an impressive 70m high.

Kuchlbauer’s Bierwelt (Beer World) in Abensberg

Take a tour of the brewery and taste the typical wheat beer from the region as well as discovering all there is to know on the subject of beer! You can also visit the Kuchlbauer Tower. Standing around 35m high, this impressive observational tower was designed by the Austrian architect Friedensreich Hundertwasser. The panoramic terrace allows a fantastic view across Abensberg and the surrounding area with its hops gardens. 

The Hall of Liberation in Kelheim

The Hall of Liberation is located on Mount Michelsberg in Kelheim. The monument was constructed on the orders of King Ludwig I as a landmark to remember the Wars of Liberation (1813-1815). 

Enjoy tradtional bavarian cuisine

The Eisvogel Gasthof pub serves down-to -earth country style cuisine using plenty of regional, seasonal specialities. During the spring, the in-house farm shop supplies asparagus and strawberries. In autumn the Eisvogel kitchen team treats guests to mushrooms and venison from the region, either traditionally prepared or newly interpreted. The cosy rooms in the Eisvogel pub are decorated in a typical Bavarian style and create a perfect ambience for a cosy, sociable evening.

The German version of our Terms & Conditions takes precedence over the English version. In case of doubt, the German version shall be taken as reference.

General business Terms and Conditions for Hotel Accommodation Contracts (AGBH 8.0)

  1. Area of application
    1. These General Business Terms and Conditions apply to contracts on the provision for rental use of hotel rooms for lodging and to all other services and supplies provided to the customer by the hotel in this connection (Hotel Accommodation Contract). The term “Hotel Accommodation Contract” encompasses and replaces the following terms: lodging, guest accommodation, hotel and hotel room contract.
    2. The sub-letting and re-letting of the rooms provided for use and the use thereof for any purposes other than those of lodging is subject to the prior consent of the hotel in text form, whereby section 540 (1) sentence 2 German Civil Code (BGB) is excluded insofar as the customer is not a consumer as defined in section 13 BGB.
    3. General business terms and conditions of the customer shall only be applicable if this is explicitly agreed in text form in advance.
  2. Concluding the contract, contract parties, statute of limitations
    1. The hotel and the customer are the parties to the contract. The contract is concluded by acceptance by the hotel of the application made by the customer. The hotel can confirm the room reservation in text form at its discretion.
    2. All claims against the hotel shall become statute-bound in principle one year after commencement of the statutory limitation period. This does not apply to claims for damages or other claims if the latter are based on an intentional or grossly negligent breach of duty of the hotel.
  3. Services, prices, payment, off-set
    1. The hotel is obliged to keep the rooms reserved by the customer available and to render the services agreed.
    2. The customer is obliged to pay the hotel’s prices that are agreed for or applicable to the provision of the room for use and to other services used by the customer. This also applies to services ordered by the customer either directly or through the hotel which are performed by third parties and paid for in advance by the hotel.
    3. The prices agreed are inclusive of the taxes and local taxes applicable at the time when the contract is concluded. They do not include local taxes such as local visitor’s tax [Kurtaxe] which the guest owes himself or herself under local community law.   
      The prices shall be adjusted accordingly in the event of changes to the statutory value added tax or of the introduction, change or elimination of local taxes on the subject matter of the contract after the contract has been entered into. In the case of contracts with consumers, this only applies if the period of time elapsing between the date of conclusion of the contract and the date of performance of the contract is longer than four months.
    4. The hotel may make its consent to a request made retrospectively by the customer to reduce the number of rooms reserved, the services provided by the hotel or the duration of the customer’s stay dependent upon reasonably increasing the price of the rooms and/or of the other services of the hotel.
    5. The hotel invoices are due and payable immediately upon receipt without any deductions being made. If payment by invoice [Zahlung auf Rechnung] is agreed, payment shall be made within ten days of receipt of the invoice without any deductions being made unless otherwise agreed.
    6. When the contract is entered into, the hotel has the right to request a reasonable advance payment or security from the customer, for example in the form of a credit card guarantee. The amount of the advance payment and the payment dates can be agreed in the contract in text form. In the event of advance payments or security for package travel, the provisions of statute shall remain unaffected. The provisions of statute shall apply in the event of late payment by the customer. 
    7. In justified cases, for example if the customer is in arrears in payment or if the scope of the contract is extended, the hotel has the right to demand, even after the contract has been concluded up until the time when the residence commences, advance payment or security as set out in subsection 3.6 above or an increase in the amount of the advance payment or security agreed in the contract up to the full amount of the remuneration agreed. 
    8. Further, the hotel has the right to request, at the beginning and during the course of the customer’s stay, a reasonable advance payment or security within the meaning of subsection 3.6 above for existing and future claims under the contract, insofar as no such payment or security has already been made or provided pursuant to subsection 3.6 and/or 3.7 above.
    9. The customer may only offset or net out an undisputed claim or a claim established by final and absolute court decision against a claim of the hotel.
    10. The customer is in agreement with the invoice being sent to the customer by electronic transmission.
  4. Revocation by the customer (countermand, cancellation)/         
    No show
    1. It is only possible for the customer to revoke the contract concluded with the hotel if a revocation right has been explicitly agreed in the contract, if there is a statutory revocation right or if the hotel explicitly consents to the cancelation of the contract. 
    2. If the hotel and the customer have agreed upon a deadline for revocation of the contract free of charge, the customer may revoke the contract up until that date without triggering any claims for payment or damages by the hotel.
    3. If no revocation right has been agreed or if it has already expired, and if there is no statutory right of revocation or termination and if the hotel does not agree to the cancellation of the contract, then the hotel retains its entitlement to the remuneration agreed although the service was not used. The hotel shall offset income from otherwise letting the rooms and saved expenditures. If the rooms are not otherwise let, the hotel can apply a flat rate for the saved expenditures. In this case the customer is obliged to pay 90% of the contractually-agreed price for overnight accommodation with or without breakfast and for package deals with third party services, 70% for half board and 60% for full board. The customer is at liberty to demonstrate that the above claim did not arise or not in the amount claimed. 
  5. Revocation by the hotel
    1. If it has been agreed that the customer may revoke the contract free of charge within a certain period, then the hotel has, for its part, the right to revoke the contract within this period if inquiries are made by other customers relating to the contractually reserved rooms and if the customer does not waive its revocation right after an inquiry is made and a reasonable period of time set by the hotel. This shall apply accordingly if the customer has been granted an option and other inquiries are made and the customer is not prepared to make a firm booking after the hotel makes an inquiry and sets an appropriate time period.
    2. The hotel also has the right to revoke the contract if an advance payment or security agreed or required in accordance with subsection 3.6 and/or subsection 3.7 has not been paid after an appropriate period of grace set by the hotel has expired.
    3. Further, the hotel has the right, for an objectively legitimate reason, to revoke the contract for extraordinary grounds, in particular in the event of
      - force majeure or other circumstances for which the hotel is not responsible, which render performance of the contract impossible;
      - rooms being reserved by culpably providing material facts that are wrong or misleading or by failing to provide material facts; in this context the term material can mean the identity of the customer, the customer’s ability to pay or the purpose of the residence;
      - the hotel having reasonable grounds to assume that the use of the service can jeopardize the smooth running of the business, the safety or public reputation of the hotel without this being attributable to the area of responsibility or organization of the hotel; 
      - the purpose of or the reason for the stay being in violation of the law;
      - a breach of subsection 1.2.
    4. Revocation by the hotel that is justified does not give the customer the right to claim damages.
  6. Making the room available, handover and return
    1. The customer does not acquire a right to the provision of specific rooms unless this has been explicitly agreed in text form.
    2. The reserved rooms shall be available for use by the customer with effect from 15:00 hours on the agreed date of arrival. The customer has no right to earlier availability. 
    3. The rooms shall be vacated and available for use by the hotel by 12:00 noon at the latest on the agreed departure date. After this time, as the room was vacated late, the hotel has the right to charge for the room use exceeding that which was contractually agreed in an amount of 50% of the full accommodation price up until 18:00 hours and in an amount of 90% after 18:00 hours (price as per price list). This does not give rise to contractual rights of the customer. The customer is at liberty to demonstrate that the hotel did not acquire a claim for compensation for use or acquired a significantly lower claim.
  7. Liability of the hotel
    1. The hotel is liable for damage which it is accountable for resulting from injury to life, body or health. It is further liable for other damage which is based on an intentional or grossly-negligent breach of duty of the hotel or on an intentional or negligent breach of duties of the hotel typical of the type of contract [vertragstypischen Pflichten]. Duties typical of the type of contract are those duties which enable the proper execution of the contract altogether and which the customer relies on being performed and is able to rely on being performed. A breach of duty of a statutory representative or person engaged in performance of an obligation of the hotel [Erfüllungsgehilfe] is equivalent to a breach of duty of the hotel. More far-reaching claims for damages are excluded unless otherwise provided for in this Section 7. If there should be any disruptions or deficiencies in the services of the hotel, the hotel shall endeavor to remedy this when it has knowledge thereof or upon a complaint being made without undue delay by the customer. The customer is obliged to contribute what it can be reasonably expected to contribute in order to remedy the disruption and minimize possible damage.
    2. The hotel is liable to the customer in accordance with the provisions of statute for items brought with the customer. The hotel recommends the use of the hotel or room safe. If the customer wishes to bring with him or her money, securities or valuables valued at over Euro 800 or other property items valued at over Euro 3,500, a separate safekeeping agreement must be entered into with the hotel.
    3. If the customer is provided with a parking space in the hotel garage or in the hotel parking lot, even if this is for payment, a custody contract is not concluded as a result. If cars parked or driven on the hotel premises or the contents thereof are lost or damaged, the hotel is only liable in accordance with sentences 1 to 4 of subsection 7.1 above.
    4. Wake-up calls are made with great care by the hotel.  
      Messages for customers are treated with care. After prior agreement with the customer, the hotel can accept, store and – if desired – dispatch for a charge mail and consignments of goods. In this connection the hotel is only liable in accordance with sentences 1 to 4 of subsection 7.1 above.
  8. Final provisions
    1. Alterations and supplements to the contract, to acceptance of the application and to these General Business Terms and Conditions shall be made in text form. Unilateral changes or supplements are ineffective.
    2. The place of performance and payment shall be Bad Gögging and the courts of Amtsgericht Regensburg shall have exclusive jurisdiction over commercial transactions – also over disputes relating to cheques and bills of exchange. If the customer meets the condition of section 38 (2) German Code of Civil Procedure (ZPO) and does not have a general place of jurisdiction in Germany, the courts of Amtsgericht Regensburg  shall have jurisdiction and venue.
    3. German law shall apply. The application of the UN Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods is excluded.
    4.  In compliance with its statutory obligation the hotel points out that the European Union has set up an online platform for the extrajudicial resolution of consumer disputes (“ODR platform”):         
      The hotel does not, however, participate in dispute resolution proceedings held before consumer dispute resolution bodies.
