Wald & Schlosshotel

Golf, Wellness & Spa


It all began in 1712 with a romantic hunting lodge –

today it is a place of wonderful cuisine and one of the best wellness-resorts in Germany.


Welcome to the 5-star superior Wald & Schlosshotel Friedrichsruhe – a beautiful place of peace and indulgence.  The luxurious property is located idyllically in “Hohenlohe” and is surrounded by a neat 44.000m² park scenery. It is ranked among the most beautiful hideaways in Germany.

You can chose from one of the 66 classy furnished rooms and suites in the historical hunting lodge, the main building, the spa-building, the gatehouse or the garden house. 

The Spa has been honored with several awards. It offers everything that you need for wellbeing and relaxation on an area of 4.400m²: 13 treatment-rooms, private spa-suites, indoor- and outdoor-pool, a diverse sauna landscape on more than 400m² by KLAFS, a fully equipped high-tech-fitness center including fitness classes with personal trainers and much more. Last but not least the pleasant treatments with the exclusive care-concept SanVino that was developed at the Wald & Schlosshotel Friedrichsruhe. To continue your SanVino journey, all products are available for purchase at Spa Reception.

We are also able to broaden your culinary horizon in our four unique restaurants – all under the leadership of Michelin star-chef Boris Rommel. Maître Dominique Metzger and his service-team ensure a delightful and pleasant service.

On the neighboring golf course of the Golf-Club Heilbronn-Hohenlohe all hotel-guests are invited to a round of golf – without tee times and with discounted green fee.

By the way: we are especially proud to announce that the Wald & Schlosshotel Friedrichsruhe was rewarded with the top mark of 20 points for the ninth time in a row by the prestigious Relax Guide.
