Hotel Knippschild

Love & Enjoy Knippschild's Life


The fact that people have been living in this place for more than 1000 years speaks for itself. It is the special location "on the mountain" that makes the small hotel an oasis of peace. All around, in the midst of pristine nature and landscape, you will find plenty of space to relax. And, if you like, also varied offers for culture, active leisure and sports. Whether water sports on Lake Möhne or Lake Hennesee, winter sports from cross-country skiing to downhill skiing, hiking along the Sauerland Forest Route "Mythos Wald" or on the Rothaarsteig, and 2000 kilometres of cycling pleasure in the Bike Arena Sauerland. Here, in the heart of North Rhine-Westphalia, it is the season all year round. The Sauerland offers just the right thing for Nordic walkers, bikers and hikers. But best of all: come and see for yourself.
