Dear guests, partners and customers,

Since 24.11.21, 2G applies to private hotel stays in terms of Corona protection. For work-related hotel stays, 3G applies and for our restaurant, the 2G-Plus regulation applies. We therefore ask you to bring a negative and up-to-date corona test with you when you visit the restaurant. What this entails in detail and who is exempt from the testing requirement, you can read here.

We understand this regulation as a reasonable measure for the containment of the pandemic and look forward to your booking and/or your table reservation by telephone.

Your family Köster-Benkendorf & Team

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.
