Ottonenhof Hotel information

Time for all-round enjoyable holiday fun: at the Familotel in Sauerland.

Simply get out of the city, breathe in the fresh air — and recharge your batteries: if you have always wanted to spend your family holiday in the picturesque natural landscape of the Sauerland, then you’ve just struck gold. The very child and family-friendly Ottonenhof is located directly in the Sauerland’s central mountain region. Known to holiday seekers as the Familotel in Sauerland as well ...


On the spacious complex of the Ottonenhof, Familienhotel in Sauerland, with its many quiet areas and relaxation activities, you will find virtually 1,001 opportunities to leave the stress of your job and everyday life behind you. But the region also has a wealth of destinations for extended day trips as a couple or with the entire family. The nearby Diemelsee Reservoir is a real paradise for watersports and leisure in the summer — while the well-developed hiking trails near the hotel are made for a long walk, Nordic walking or a mountain bike ride.

In winter, the direct proximity of the Ottonenhof to the Willingen winter sports arena is highly favourable. You will feel completely in your element here — the largest winter sports region in Germany north of the Alps. Because the range of activities available for skiers, tobogganists, snowboarders and cross-country skiers is huge. Just the sheer quantity of 16 lifts and 70 km network of cross-country ski runs promise pure snow enjoyment. If the white landscape fails to appear despite the snow sureness, then we can give nature a helping hand with our efficient snow cannons.


At the Ottonenhof, we know: a family holiday in Sauerland is only really great when both children and adults are happy. And it’s precisely for this reason that we do everything we can to satisfy the demands of both young and old guests alike. So, even as you arrive, your children can look forward to a generous range of playtime activities. For example, the exciting adventure playground — or the approx. 300 square metre indoor play area. In addition, trained childcare providers will provide boisterous holiday fun full of highlights.

You see: at the Familotel in Sauerland, we love the merry laughter and bright eyes of your children. And your little ones will definitely be delighted when they see the petting zoo, with its goats, rabbits, sheep, donkeys, etc. The same goes with the riding activities. We provide taster riding lessons in the large riding hall as well as guided pony treks. And your teens will also really enjoy their holidays here. The hotel’s own bowling alley and a basement filled with foosball tables, table tennis, air hockey and billiards table will always ensure there’s enough action going on.

Do you think we’ve forgotten the adults? Then here’s the good news first: with up to 50 hours of childcare for your children and babies each week, there is enough time for you to spend time as a couple. And take a look at what you can do with this time ...
