Pleasantly hidden in the forests of the Hochsauerland
One could almost believe that one was alone in the world – that’s how secluded the Waldhaus Ohlenbach on the southern-facing slope of the Kahlen Asten mountain is. All of the hotel rooms face the south or south-east and provide a wide view across the hilly forests of Hochsauerland. Regular guests, who have been visiting the Waldhaus Ohlenbach for many years now for some relaxing time off, appreciate the unobtrusive, family-like atmosphere and the heartiness of the team. One of the hotelier Stefan Schneider’s innovative ideas: The guests can choose their rooms depending on what colour and style they prefer.
It is marvellous to swim, relax and take a sauna in the wellness & spa forest attraction. A heated Finnish chalet amidst the greenery awaits your visit. Shielded by a grass roof, you can jump into the icy spring water after the hot 95 °C – only being watched by a few curious squirrels if anything. Natural products made from herbs, oils and earth rich in minerals cater for beauty and wellness in the beauty area. Pure nature even right at the doorstep: Hiking routes, mountain bike tours and Nordic walking trails lead off into the vastness of Hochsauerland, which is usually snowed in in the winter and then fascinates skiing fans.
Enjoy the pleasant heat of 30°C warm water in the indoor swimming pool or comfortably warm stone in the hamam. Two block cabin saunas look out over the valley. The house has bathrooms with jet tubs and light effects, and a reflexology footpath with diving and stepping pools. Further offers include massage, Shiatsu and extensive Ayurvedic treatments, Nordic Walking, select mountain bike tours and long hikes.
Classic cosmetics, thalassotherapy treatments, baths and packs.
