Closure of the restaurant on 31.05.2024

Good cuisine, courteous service and an exceptional ambience. For many years, our restaurant has been a valued address for enjoyable evenings for two or with friends, for business lunches and for family celebrations. On 31 May 2024, we will close our restaurant with a heavy heart and switch to a bed and breakfast hotel. The shortage of skilled labour and the consequences of the VAT increase to 19% on food make this step unavoidable.

Until then, we will be happy to spoil you as usual! 

There will of course be plenty of alternative restaurants for you in future, some of which are even within walking distance of the hotel. The Greek restaurant ‘Poseidon’ (Goetheplatz 5) and the Chinese restaurant ‘Reich der Mitte’ (Goetheplatz 2) are in the immediate vicinity, just a few metres away.

Our hotelMain house & 2 guest houses

Spend your short holiday in Wittgenstein and the Sauerland in the middle of the romantic and historic old town of Bad Berleburg. Located opposite the baroque Berleburg Castle of the Princes Sayn-Wittgenstein, the neat half-timbered building of the main house Alte Schule exudes a very special charm. The building, which captivates with lovingly arranged details such as old certificates and teaching utensils, housed the girls' and boys' secondary school from 1923 to 1954.

In the guesthouse Altes Museum you live and stay overnight in the former town museum of Bad Berleburg. The building, which was rebuilt in 1825 after the great town fire, has been completely renovated and is connected to the main building. It offers modern and elegantly furnished rooms, but at the same time retains the nostalgic charm of the historic museum. A special highlight is the reception, which is located in the original grocer's shop, which has been part of the building for almost 200 years.

In the Fliegendes Klassenzimmer guesthouse, a total of 19 modernly furnished rooms await you in front of a fantastic old town backdrop for your short break for two, at the weekend or during the week. Our themed rooms are particularly popular: choose your favourite school subject and stay in "Chemistry", "History", "Physics" or "Sports".

Let a charming town, the largest contiguous forest area in Germany and a lovingly run hotel, consisting of a main house and two guest houses, take you on a short trip you won't soon forget.
