Ebbinghof Hotel information
Have fun, be active and have a brilliant time: it sounds simple, but it is not always easy on a long-awaited family holiday. At the end of the day, you should get your money’s worth at this great time of the year, in the same way as your children. And this is where the services provided by the Familotel Ebbinghof in Schmallenberg come into their own. Because in Sauerland, we know how to satisfy our young and old guests in an absolutely natural environment.
Nature calls — to an exuberant family holiday, in the heart of the beautiful natural landscape of Sauerland. You can immediately switch off from the stress of dull everyday life here and simply take a break from life. But if you don’t catch sight of your children again in the hours after your arrival, they will be enjoying their „stressful leisure“. What a wonder, on over 2,000 square metres of playground, with its own sports ground and its own racetrack for go-karts, tricycles, bobby cars and ride-on tractors. But we expect they will first want to take a look at the petting zoo with its over 40 rabbits, goats, donkeys and horses. Or playfully run around in the straw of the power barn.
And if the weather doesn’t play ball, the 250 square metre indoor playground and three rooms will ensure that your darlings do not get bored. It goes without saying that you will be able to do some things without your children. The over 40 members of staff of the hotel will not only take care of you, but also keep a watchful eye on our smaller guests. And by the same token, our registered nursery teachers can care for your little ones for up to 85 hours a week — and in groups of no more than eight children. So you are sure to have enough time to take in the adult activities on offer, with Qigong, felting and Nordic walking courses, guided cycle tour, handicrafts, theatre workshops and, and, and ... — as well as getting to know other couples.
As well as the many other leisure activities, riding is especially important at the Familotel Ebbinghof: a total of 10 ponies and horses are waiting to make friends with your children. It plays no role whether your family is encountering our loyal equine friends for the first time — or if you already have some experience of riding. It goes without saying that professional FN-certified riding lessons and a learn-through-play riding school for your youngest children are part of our services, together with rides-out into the picturesque landscape of Sauerland. In addition, you can take advantage of our special „riding as exercise“ activities. You can even bring your own horses after prior arrangement.
Schmallenberg in Sauerland is also a worthwhile destination for your family holiday in the cold winter months. This, the largest ski resort north of the alps, with its white landscape — and a multitude of winter sports opportunities is very appealing. You’ll be spoilt for choice about where to begin with your snow fun. The ski and toboggan lifts will take you to the many freshly prepared cross-country ski runs, rapid downhill pistes and long tobogganing tracks. And if you and your children have never skied before, then you can take advantage of the lessons on offer at nearby ski schools.
One thing is sure: you will really enjoy yourself here — as the snow is guaranteed for 90 days in the region of Schmallenberg/Winterberg.
The rooms of the Familotel Ebbinghof and the spa area of the hotel both offer you relaxing moments of well-being. So you can leave everyday life behind you with a Hawaiian Lomi Lomi full-body massage — or realign your body and soul with an Ayurvedic massage. You can also work up a real sweat in our sauna complex, which can also be used as a „private spa“ for you to enjoy an hour or two as a couple.
And if you don’t want to miss out on your daily workout during your holiday, then you can use the hotel’s small fitness room, with cross-trainer and exercise bike.
By the way: if they want to, your little ones can also be pampered in our „children’s spa“. So your entire family can have relaxing and refreshing moments.
At the Familienhotel Ebbinghof, you can live as you feel happiest. Irrespective of whether you’re travelling as a single parent or with a large family — you are sure to find the right accommodation.
Especially important for you: at the Familienhotel Ebbinghof, an entire array of children’s equipment is available for you to use free of charge. So you can concentrate on the essential things when preparing your holiday — like planning fantastic holidays.
Whether a family breakfast together, mid-afternoon coffee or a romantic candlelit dinner: in the rustic and floodlit dining room or the spacious beer garden of the Familotel Ebbinghof, you can have a thoroughly good time. Typical Sauerland specialities are on the menu, together with delicious, but more importantly, freshly baked cakes. And the best thing: all the catering is all-inclusive for you. That makes your travel budget go further — and creates some leeway for exciting and thrilling holiday fun.
A special highlight in the warm summer months: our regular BBQ evenings in the Felsenengarten of the hotel, which you can enjoy socially while the sun sets. And your little ones are bound to be excited when they bake their first bread-on-a-stick over the open campfire.
In short: during your holiday at the Familienhotel Ebbinghof, you can enjoy rural culture and our country way of life, as can only be experienced in the homely and familiar atmosphere of a farm.
