About us

Spending your vacation at friends: We are Julia and Sven Hehl from Nordwalde near Münster in Westphalia/Germany. For more than 20 years we have been regularly visiting Winterberg, mainly in the winter months for skiing. We have followed the development of the tourist infrastructure with admiration: Snow safety in winter and the most modern lift facilities as well as biking mecca in summer with over 700 km of well-marked mountain bike trails. It quickly became clear to us: we also want to become part of this project!

With one villa and one small studio in Hurghada/Egypt, we have already helped many people to enjoy their dream vacation at the Red Sea. Also in Winterberg we now ensure with our experience as well as on the one hand our high-quality equipped holiday suite and on the other hand our brand new top modern design studio that you will not miss anything during your stay.

Our valuable contacts in the city of Winterberg also contribute to this. These enable us to offer you an all-round carefree package: First and foremost there is the Sauerland SommerCard, which offers leisure fun for the whole family at virtually zero cost with its special offers at the affiliated partner attractions. The Sauerland SommerCard is included free of charge in our accommodation offer from April to October. The saved entrance fees have a big impact, especially for families: A family of four can save around 1,000 euros with the card! Together with our customized guest service, your vacation at our place will be an entirely pleasant and successful experience.

When will you visit our holiday suite or our design studio "Kappe Deluxe" located directly at the adventure mountain? We look forward to welcoming you!



Winterberg with its approximately 12,650 inhabitants is located in the heights of the Rothaargebirge in North Rhine-Westphalia. But the quiet little city offers much more than the expected small-town flair: Winterberg is considered to be the sports stronghold in NRW – and not only in winter!

In addition, the "Winterberg-Hallenberg Holiday Region" has achieved international fame with 1.2 million overnight stays and almost 2 million day visitors every year. Winterberg has made its name as a winter sports destination. In the winter months, it offers 27.5 kilometers of downhill tracks thanks to 360 snow machines and 26 ultra-modern ski-lifts. It is also the venue for World Cup bobsleigh and luge races.

In summer, the adventure mountain Kappe offers its large bike park as well as a variety of other recreational opportunities. In the surrounding area 700 kilometers of prepared mountain bike trails are waiting. The magnificent nature of Rothaarsteig with countless kilometers of well-maintained walking and biking trails attracts both hiking enthusiasts as well as health-conscious guests.

Winterberg also offers a lot in terms of architecture and culinary delights: The typical Sauerland timber-framed houses can be found here as well as a wide range of restaurants from steak, pasta, potato and pancake houses along with dignified star cuisine and international specialties (Asian, Indian, American, Greek, Italian and many more) to the party mile "Am Waltenberg" with "Dorf-Alm" and Irish pub. Those who like to stroll and go shopping will certainly use the pedestrian precinct in the city center with its small boutiques and stores.

In a word: Winterberg is an attractive vacation metropolis and is looking forward to all of its guests!

The Ski Lift Carousel – SummerLove and WinterLuck:

The ski lift carousel is – contrary to what its name might suggest – much more than "just" the winter sports center of Winterberg. Rather, it presents two very different faces – depending on the season. In terms of "attractiveness", however, neither has to hide from the other: In winter, Germany's most modern ski resort welcomes its guests; in summer, action and adrenaline are waiting! The following links provide detailed information and offer the opportunity to book tickets and ski passes:

Adventure mountain Kappe – bike park, fly line, panoramic bridge, climbing forest and much more:

Located directly at our holiday suite "Kappe Deluxe", the adventure mountain Kappe presents an all-embracing leisure program – in summer as well as in winter. It is also home to the Bike Park, which also offers numerous international mountain bike events. In winter, the east side of the Kappe becomes the steepest downhill slope north of the Alps. It is also home of VELTINS EisArena, one of the fastest artificial ice tracks in the world. In 2024, the IBSF Bob & Skeleton World Championships will be hosted here.
