Am Rennsteig Hotel information
Have you always wanted to spend your family holiday walking in the footsteps of Goethe and Schiller? Then the region around Germany's oldest ridge walk is as if made for you and your family. Here, in the middle of the Thuringian Highland, the unforced, family atmosphere of Familotel Am Rennsteig Wurzbach makes you think about new things – and ensures an all-round relaxing and inspiring holiday feeling …
First things first: what awaits you and your family on your holiday at the Familotel Am Rennsteig Wurzbach is a particularly child and family-friendly hotel at an altitude of approximately 600 metres. Here, sun-drenched terraces and pool meadows create a truly modern and relaxed atmosphere in which you will feel very good. And your children, too, can more than enjoy your uncomplicated time together at Familotel Wurzbach. After all, there are all sorts of things to discover here…
Starting with a flying visit to the "hare villa", where cute guinea pigs and hares await. Then it's off to the hotel's own swimming pool. And to top things off, a turn on the playground or on the beach volleyball court. And if there is a time when you cannot keep an eye on your little ones, the trained child carers will of course do that for you; they look after your children for at least 35 hours a week.
Enjoy precious time together as a couple. For example, in the wellness and fitness area of the Familotel Am Rennsteig. The sauna area is warmly recommended. Here, in the Finnish sauna, not only do you really sweat, but you also strengthen your immune system. Afterwards, you can cool off in the indoor swimming pool with its spacious outdoor pool, which is only a few steps away. A healthy complexion and relaxing moments are also provided by a visit to the stylish vital oasis, where Elke Schwägerl already awaits you. The cosmetician knows how to indulge you with soothing treatments for your skin, refreshing vitalisation baths in the crystal acoustic tub or anti-ageing treatments.
You will not have felt as good in your skin for a long time. And if you would like to do even more for you body, you have the opportunity to do so in the modernly equipped fitness room.
The central location of the Wurzbach family hotel is ideal for actively exploring the region. For instance, on the Hohenwarte and Bleiloch reservoir - affectionately known as the "Thuringian Sea" by locals - you will find manifold opportunities for water sports. Here you can go on canoe trips and surf, or enjoy a relaxing sail on the lakes. The summer toboggan run - which, after the first go, leaves you with a thirst for more - and the climbing forest are particularly popular among the guests of the hotel. And in winter in Wurzbach, with its ski lift, a ski slope of approximately 300 metres length as well ski trails several kilometres long, all signs point to pure winter fun. Assuming the weather plays ball, of course.
Undoubtedly an absolute highlight for your children is the proximity to the German Toy Street. For here one can meet again one or two "old acquaintances" from nursery. For example on a visit to the Playmobil FunPark, which, with its various theme worlds, is as if made for an exciting day trip. Amusement is also provided by carriage rides at Saalburg Fairytale Forest, the hydraulic power museum in Ziegenrück, the Saalfelder Feengrotten adventure mine with little fairy worlds – or a visit to Europe's largest steam machine, located right in Wurzbach.
Bright. Modern. Pleasant. You and your family can feel completely at ease in the rooms and apartments of Familotel Wurzbach. Especially when you have enjoyed the beautiful view of the idyllic landscape for the first time. Here you are guaranteed always to find the right room type.
And the best thing: with separate bedrooms for your little ones, all members of your family can get the rest they need – and are fit again in time for the next exciting day of their holiday.
Mountain air makes one particularly hungry. The staff of the Familotel Am Rennsteig Wurzbach know this – so they treat small and big guests alike to regional and international specialities. The morning begins for your family with a substantial breakfast buffet.
Here you will find everything the heart desires, from fresh rolls to different varieties of sausage and cheese to scrambled eggs. In addition, the half board offers you a varied and delicious cold/warm buffet with table drinks in the evening hours. And your children, too, are sure to find their favourite dish in the special children's buffet. And the best thing: the food as well as all drinks are already in the price for your children as part of "Kids all inclusive".
The pizzeria "Primavera" lures guests with Italian specialities such as insalata and oven-fresh pizzas, and not just at lunch time. You can see out the day on a culinary note at the à-la-carte restaurant "Bei Neubeck´s". Here, the menu would of course not be complete without the traditional "Rostbrätl" – marinated slices of pig's neck. Between meal times, the hotel bar is always open to you. Here, depending on the time of day, you can enjoy delicious coffee specialities, small snacks or refreshing cocktails. Things get really cosy when liquors based on age-old original recipes are served in the evening hours.
By the way, the extremely tasty spirits with the names "Herztinktur" (heart lotion), "Schieferblut" (shale blood) and "Bärwurz" (bear root) can also be acquired at the hotel – the ideal souvenir for all who have stayed at home.
