Our wellness philosophy

A warm purism runs through the whole house, in the corridors you will meet warm staff and friendly guests. Everywhere you will find enough space to recharge. Here you can simply be who you are. In the SPA you experience cold and heat. You swim, you rest, you relax, you enjoy. This is how the DIEDRICH Wellnesshotel & SPA feels.

Hello leisure, old friend. In the Duden dictionary, leisure is described as "free time and [inner] peace in which one can pursue one's own interests." And honestly, when do we really have enough time and space for that in our everyday lives? We want you to be able to devote yourself to whatever you feel like - without any ifs or buts.

The time we take is the time that gives us something.

Ernst Ferstl (Austrian teacher and writer, *1955)

As an Adults only wellness hotel, we offer holistic getaways - without children and without dogs. Just so that we are understood correctly: Of course we love children and dogs. The decision to run our house as an adult hotel is about the following for us: As wonderful as these make our everyday life, it also does us good to just take a little time out really just for ourselves. Having time for yourself and paying attention to yourself is what we believe wellness is essentially about. Especially young children and also dogs structure our daily routine in a determining way due to their needs. We know this well, living in also in our family a toddler as well as a wonderful dog - and as much as we love our daughter and appreciate our dog: Sometimes it's nice to focus only on our own wishes.

There are no exceptions to this in our wellness hotel. That would be unfair for all those who spend their stay with us without children and dogs - and who may yet be overcome by longing at a moment too strong.

The joy of feeling

We are all about you. Or more precisely: We are about you. We want our hotel to be a place of strength for you. To relax and pause. To discover and feel. To arrive and feel good. To enjoy and experience. We offer you the space, you bring the time. Moments arise from space and time.

Moments that stay.

Wellness does not just mean relaxing, but is rather a holistic pursuit of a healthy lifestyle. This essentially involves four pillars: relaxation, nutrition, exercise and emotional, social well-being. They are wonderful guideposts for a positive attitude towards life and a life in inner balance.

About searching and finding relaxation

If you do not find tranquility within yourself, it is in vain to seek it elsewhere.

François de La Rochefoucauld (French man of letters, 1613 - 1680)

Moments when we can just be. Moments in which everything is perfect because it is the way it is. Moments in which you perceive with all your senses. In the here and now, oblivious to time. True tranquility that consistently withstands external influences.

That is what we wish for - and out of this wish our house is exactly the way it is. We have love and warmth in every corner.

Diet that keeps you healthy and lively

Let your foods be your remedies

Hippocrates of Kos (Greek physician, c. 460 B.C. - c. 370 B.C.)

A healthy diet is important and it includes not only the what - but also the how. We emphasize the sustainable cultivation of vegetables, the consumption of meat from organic sources and focus on regional products instead of the constant availability of exotic foods. Our meals are fresh and prepared from regional and seasonal ingredients as much as possible. Here, for example, you will get to know coffee from the neighboring village of Medebach, be delighted with the bread from nearby Medelon and enjoy heavenly jam from Geismar with it.

Food is precious. We look forward to you tasting it with all your senses. The breakfast buffet is open until 11:30 a.m., and all day long you can enjoy the small dishes from our vesper menu. A delicious evening menu in a relaxed atmosphere will end every wellness day perfectly.

Exercise for body, mind and soul

If you don't change anything, nothing will change!

Sparky Anderson (US baseball coach, 1934 - 2010)

Gentle, extreme, stimulating or calming, whether a walk or a bike ride through the beautiful Sauerland region, jogging on the treadmill or a round of swimming lost in thought: Rediscover the joy of movement with us. Our charming "Haus der Mitte" is a wonderful place to slip a little closer to your inner center during inspiring yoga or mediation courses.

On friendship and love: social, emotional well-being.

Basically, it is the connections with people that give life its value.

Wilhelm von Humboldt (scholar & writer, 1767 - 1835)

Truly nothing is as wonderful as time spent together. It is often not material things that give our lives their value, but rather the sum of the memories we have spent with loved ones. Memories that we like to think back on.

During a wellness vacation with your loved ones, you can focus on exactly these moments. Spend carefree time together, reminisce, make plans together - and consciously enjoy each other's presence.

Our favorite place in the world: Hallenberg

While traveling to faraway countries, vacationing on white beaches or hiking imposing mountains have a charm all their own, we have to confess one thing: Hallenberg is not only our home, but also our favorite place - and we are grateful that our great-grandfather fulfilled his dream of a small hotel right here in 1898. Here, rolling mountains combine with vast meadows and forests, flocks of sheep and lush cows graze contentedly in the surrounding pastures. We have a lot of sun here in the summer, snow in the winter again and again and enjoy a pleasantly unhurried life in the small village. Here there is room for everyone, here people greet each other. Here it is quiet, here people have time for each other.
