On the southern slope of the 841 metre high Kahler Asten – far from the world’s hustle and bustle – lies the charming hotel Waldhaus Ohlenbach. In the summer it is an excellent starting point for cycling and walking trips - and in winter time for alpine or cross-country skiing. At 700 metres above sea level, leaving the hotel you step straight out into nature. The Winterberg ski lifts are nearby.
Waldhaus Ohlenbach is also a wellness hotel with indoor and outdoor swimming pools and Finnish sauna, as well as various beauty treatments and massages.
All rooms face either south or south-west and have a wonderful panoramic view of the hills of High Sauerland, the ‘land of the 1000 mountains’. The individually styled rooms range from classic Sauerland pine wood décor to crisp contemporary with bright colours.
Chef Stefan Schneider is an ambitious cook. His cuisine ranges from regional dishes to international classics. Good honest food without bells and whistles.
Chef Stefan Schneider is very ambitious in his cooking. His cuisine ranges from regional dishes to international classics. His trademark is good, honest food without bells and whistles, inspired by fresh local ingredients. Accompanying wines can be found in the well-stocked wine cellar. You even have a choice of two restaurants. During the summer months why not enjoy your meal out on the terrace and take in the stunning panorama.
The cosy bar is a great meeting point after a full day out. Comfortable chairs and bar stools invite you to try the two draught beers of the house; Veltins Pils and Waldhaus Pils. Or you might be tempted by one of the 10 brands of Gin, a good glass of brandy or of course by one of the truly wonderful wines.
Restaurant opening hours:
Monday and Tuesday exclusively available for hotel guests.
Wednesday through Sunday from 18.00h.
Bar open from 6pm-3am.
The hotel doesn’t have a garden, but then it doesn’t need one with such surroundings. The large, south facing, welcoming terrace offers stunning views of the hills and valleys surrounding the hotel. There is seating for 50 to soak up the sun and a further 25 seats under canopies.
The Kahler Asten is Sauerland’s most famous mountain. Waldhaus Ohlenbach, at 700 m above sea level, is not far from skiing resort Winterberg, which makes it the ideal winter venue for skiing trips. From the hotel you step out into nature. The area is well serviced with roads, so not only cyclists and hikers, but also for example motorbikes and old timers can enjoy the region.
