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 those passing through. Since then, many things have changed and our wellness hotel has become a destination. Today, this 4 star superior hotel in the Sauerland is a true refuge with plenty of space to recharge, a place to recharge your batteries, a small oasis of well-being far away from everyday life.

Relax actively while hiking, cycling and winter sports in the middle of the 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 will find modern rooms and suites, a bright SPA area with two swimming pools, a spacious sauna area, various relaxation areas and a wide range of massages and wellness treatments.

Charming wellness hotel in a historic half-timbered town

Idyllically situated at the foothills of the Rothaar Mountains, the bubbling Nuhne stream flows through Hallenberg. With its 4,400 inhabitants, the historic half-timbered village is the smallest municipality 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 post office and accommodated travellers passing through more than 120 years ago. So our hotel in the Sauerland has been a house of hospitality and relaxation for a long time - even if it may not have been quite as comfortable in 1898 as it is today.

Actively out and about in Hallenberg and the surrounding area

Especially if you have decided to spend several nights at the Wellnesshotel Sauerland, it is a good idea to explore the surrounding area. The Sauerland is popularly known as the "land of a thousand mountains". It comes as no surprise that our DIEDRICH Wellnesshotel & SPA is surrounded by picturesque peaks that are worth exploring. In Hallenberg, very close to our wellness hotel in the Sauerland, for example, the hike to the approximately 704-metre high Heidekopf at the Ziegenhelle begins. The purpose of the hike is to reach the Heidekopf tower at the top of the mountain, from where you can enjoy the magnificent view of the Rothaar Mountains and the Sauerland. Neighbouring Winterberg is the most famous winter sports resort north of the Alps. Its popular ski lift carousel is only 14 kilometres away from Hallenberg. In addition to the famous St. Georg ski jump, there are 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 leisure activities. 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 your way over or under the bridge to the other side, protected by safety nets. 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. The towns of Schmallenberg and Willingen are also perfect for a day trip. Schmallenberg delights with its historical charm and is also an ideal starting point for hikes through the beautiful Sauerland countryside. If you are in the mood for entertainment, Willingen is the place to be. In Willingen, numerous pubs that invite you to eat and celebrate await you. Other surrounding towns such as Frankenberg with its half-timbered flair or Bad Berleburg are also ideal for a relaxed stroll through the town. No matter what time of year, young or old: the surroundings of our DIEDRICH Wellnesshotel & SPA offer countless opportunities to explore the nature of the Sauerland to your heart's content, to experience culture or to go on excursions.
