Hotel-Restaurant Schmachtenbergshof

Hotel-Restaurant SchmachtenbergshofOriginally built as a farmhouse in 1726, our house has been a family property since then. It has been modernised intensively and was steadily transformed from a former farmhouse into what is now a comfortable hotel and restaurant. Start your day off with an extensive and varied breakfast in the morning. Relax in the evening in our hotel-own tavern with a glass of wine from our wine cellar or a fresh draught beer. On request and depending on availability, the hotel also offers an in-house massage service. For your sportive activities there is a bowling alley at our guests’ disposal.
