Waldesblick Hotel & Restaurant
The cornerstone of our current hotel Waldesblick was established in 1972 by Manfred and Katharina Wendling. As ‘Meisterin der ländlichen Hauswirtschaft’ and ‘Landwirtschaftsmeister’, both Manfred and Katharina strove for sound quality and a pleasant ambience.
In 2002, when pension Waldesblick was left in the care of the second generation, the conversion from pension to hotel began. Since 2007, our hotel is awarded with three stars in the German hotel classification. Since August 2016 we are awarded 3 stars superior.
Following renovation and expansion, the hotel has been awarded 4 stars under the European Hotel Classification since November 2019.
Highest quality – that is our goal and our daily motivation, for the hotel as well as the catering. With much dedication and passion, we want to pamper our guests to make the days in our house as pleasant as possible. We are here for you
