Your SPA & Wellness Hotel Sauerland

Family-run since 1898. Already in the founding year, our wellness hotel in the Sauerland was a place of recreation, because at that time, as a hotel with an imperial post office, we accommodated transients. Since then, many things have changed and our wellness hotel has become a tourist destination. Today, our 4-star superior hotel in the Sauerland region is a true refuge with plenty of space to recharge, a place to recharge your batteries, a little oasis of well-being far away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. As a wellness hotel for adults aged 16 and over, we focus entirely on relaxation and recreation for couples and friends.

Wellness hotel Sauerland: This is what relaxing feels like

The DIEDRICH Wellnesshotel & SPA in Hallenberg near Winterberg, now run by the fourth generation, is a popular accommodation for a short vacation in the Sauerland. The country town of Hallenberg belongs to the district of Hochsauerland in North Rhine-Westphalia and is located directly on the border with Hesse. Surrounded by the picturesque Rothaargebirge mountains, not far from the Kellerwald-Edersee National Park, the lush green of the Nuhne floodplain and numerous lakes and forests, Hallenberg is the perfect starting point for boundless recreational fun in spring, summer, autumn and winter. Relax actively while hiking, biking and winter sports in the middle of picturesque Sauerland natural idyll, admire the historical monuments of the charming little town - where, by the way, Hallenberg beer has finally been available again after more than 100 years since 2018 - and let us pamper you from head to toe. In our Hotel Sauerland you can expect modern equipped rooms and suites, a bright SPA area with two swimming pools, a spacious sauna area, various relaxation areas and a variety of massage offers and wellness treatments. Yoga fans come to rest in the "Haus der Mitte" of the wellness hotel, fitness enthusiasts will love the cardio training on our modern fitness equipment.

Charming wellness hotel in historic half-timbered town

Idyllically situated at the foothills of the Rothaar Mountains, the bubbling brook Nuhne flows through Hallenberg. With its 4,400 inhabitants, the historic half-timbered village is the smallest community in Westphalia. Not only historians will love Hallenberg's pretty monuments - the charming town is the perfect setting to stroll through narrow alleys and enjoy Hallenberg's special atmosphere. Our DIEDRICH Wellnesshotel & SPA itself is also a piece of contemporary history. The beautiful building with the traditional shingle roof was once a postal station and accommodated transients already more than 120 years ago. Thus, our hotel in the Sauerland has been a house of hospitality and recreation for a long time - even if it may not have been quite as comfortable in 1898 as it is today.

Active on the road in Hallenberg and surroundings

Especially if you have decided to spend several nights at the Wellnesshotel Sauerland, exploring the surrounding area is a good idea. The Sauerland is popularly known as the "land of a thousand mountains". No wonder that our DIEDRICH Wellnesshotel & SPA is surrounded by picturesque peaks that are worth exploring.

The purpose of the hike is to reach the Heidekopf tower on the top of the mountain, from which you can enjoy the magnificent view of the Rothaargebirge and the Sauerland. Neighboring Winterberg is the most famous winter sports resort north of the Alps. Its popular ski lift carousel is only 14 kilometers away from Hallenberg. In addition to the famous St. Georg ski jump, you can enjoy smaller ski jumping facilities as well as numerous slopes and cross-country ski trails.

In summer, the surrounding area has a lot to offer in terms of recreational action. Mountain bike tours in the Bike Arena Sauerland attract beginners as well as professionals with bike trails and GPS races. You want even more action? Then be sure to visit the Winterberg-Niedersfeld go-kart track. But you should leave yourself more time for a trip to the Panorama Adventure Bridge. From up there you have a breathtaking view of Winterberg. And the special thing: There are different ways to move across the bridge. Either classically on foot or you climb, crawl or shimmy, protected by safety nets, over or under the bridge to the other side. In summer, you can refresh yourself afterwards in the outdoor swimming pool in the forest or in the Hillebach reservoir or take a leisurely walk around the water. Perfect for a day trip are also the towns of Schmallenberg and Willingen. Schmallenberg inspires with historical charm and is also an ideal starting point for hikes through the beautiful Sauerland nature. If you are in the mood for entertainment, Willingen is the place to be. In Willingen numerous pubs, which invite you to eat and celebrate, are waiting for you. Other surrounding towns such as Frankenberg with its half-timbered flair or Bad Berleburg are also well suited for a relaxed city stroll. No matter what time of year, young or old: the surroundings of our DIEDRICH Wellnesshotel & SPA hold countless opportunities to explore the nature of the Sauerland to your heart's content, to experience culture or to go on excursions.
