Ottonenhof Childcare and activities

Leisure fun at its best: at Familotel Sauerland.

First things first: a family holiday in the Sauerland is always only as exciting as the leisure opportunities offered to you and your children. On a family holiday in the Sauerland, nothing is left to chance. In addition to a boat hiring service and a summer toboggan run, you can expect picnics and outdoor barbecue evenings. In short: boredom is a foreign concept here. 


It's the taking part that counts! This applies particularly to the leisure package that Familotel Sauerland has put together for your children. In addition to a brilliant forest playground, your little adventurers will find everything that kids love on the large site, from the "fleet" with Bobbycars, pedal tractors and scooters to a swing, a rocker and a sandpit. Here are just a few examples:

  • Tractor carriage rides for the whole family: Once a week, the time comes. Then, - as long as the weather holds - it's past the Ottlar Woods and out to the maize labyrinth on the "tractor carriage". Of course, your children remain among each other to enjoy this fun. Because, unfortunately, parents must stay behind.
  • Indoor playing area: More than 300 m2 of pure playing fun await your children. With a slide, a ball pit and large gymnastics mats for the youngest ones and a games area with table tennis, table football, billiards, darts and air hockey for the older ones, all signs here point to "action"!
  • Night-time hikes: They are among the undisputed highlights for little guests. No wonder: they are always particularly exciting – and yes, always a little bit spooky too. Also popular: baking twist bread together on the open campfire.


The leisure paradise of Willingen is more than suitable for sporting activities. Here, the lakes, hiking paths and golf courses are just as much a part of the leisure programme as the snow for perfect winter delights. You can experience all of this:

Water sports

With its outstanding water quality, the Diemelsee offers excellent conditions for sailing and surfing. However, fishing, canoeing, diving and swimming are also possible in this lake.


With a length of approximately 54 kilometres, the Diemelsteig offers excellent conditions for hiking, Nordic walking, jogging and mountain biking. In the process, the largely untouched path ensures an untarnished view of the unique landscape panorama.


Simply get out of town, take a breath of fresh air – and recharge your batteries. The central location of Familotel Sauerland offers you more than one opportunity for this – with a large number of trip destinations. Together with your family, discover the trip destinations of the Sauerland low mountain range region. For example:

Tip 1: Willingen Wildlife and Leisure Park

In the middle of the Diemelsee Nature Park you can experience fallow deer, red deer, Sika deer, exotic animals such as Barbary apes and parrots as well as small predators such as brown bears and wild cats. The offering is rounded off by impressive bird of prey presentations.

Tip 2: Lagunen-Erlebnisbad Willingen

Enjoy the Caribbean flair in Hochsauerland. With two directly connected indoor and outdoor pools as well as a giant chute, the wide wave chute and the Black Hole chute with light attractions, the tropically inspiring swimming landscape guarantees pure swimming fun for the whole family.

Tip 3: Wintersport-Arena Willingen

In Germany's largest winter sports resort north of the Alps, winter sport enthusiasts feel like they are in seventh heaven. 16 lifts as well as the 70 kilometre-long network of cross-country ski runs promise pure snow fun.

You can obtain all the information you need about this and other opportunities at the hotel reception of Familotel Sauerland.
