Leisure & Sports

In and around Papenburg


Our landscape offers all you’ll need to relax and regenerate.

Beautiful "Emsland", neighbouring East Frisia & the Netherland as well as the nearby East Frisia Islands provide you with beautiful destinations for day trips. Of course, you'll need to experience Papenburg itself, Germany's longest and oldest fen colony...

Please see our front desk staff for brochures and additional information.

Cycling Tours


Our hotel is a popular stop for cyclists touring the area, since the fenland-route, the Rudi-Altig-route and the Eric-Zabel-Route all come by our house.

You can safely park your bike at our hotel.

The „Emsland“ and neighbouring East Frisia have much to offer for cyclists and fans of cycling tours when it comes to a wide range of local bike paths and regional cycling routes.

After a long cycling tour or a day trip, enjoy a bath or a shower and relax in the comfort of your cosy room. Let the efforts of the day turn into an experience you won’t forget.

Our restaurant team will make you forget your exertions in no time.
