Tuesdays day off, arrival only on request. A warm and friendly atmosphere welcomes the guest in the very traditional Altes Berghaus, a house with a long history. Our house is situated directly next to the forest in a particularly beautiful and extremely idyllic and charming part of the Wiehengebirge – the Bad Essen hills, in the middle of the TERRA.vita nature park in the Osnabrück and Varus region. The well-known Wittekindsweg (a walking trail travelled by many) runs directly past our hotel. This is the perfect place to stay before and after exploring the district. The surrounding forest and countryside is very appealing to nature lovers and it is the perfect place for walkers, bicycle-riders and families. Our front garden has a play area for children with a swing, trampoline and slide. Companies and clubs can hold meetings, seminars, reunions or training courses away from the bustle of the town. We provide the perfect setting for festivities of all kinds. This is a place to switch off from the stress of daily routine and relax your mind, body and soul and enjoy an unforgettable stay – whether it be for a few hours or days. The very beautiful beer- and cafégarden under old trees tempts the guest to stay a while and relax. Our comfortable guestrooms are all equipped with a separate shower, toilet and some have satellite TV. In our cosy restaurant and bar we offer specialities of the region such as venison and other game. Other popular dishes include local trout, and various grilled dishes and steaks. Another house speciality is our delicious homemade cakes, cream gateau and flans. We also offer a wide variety of seasonal specialities. We provide diverse and typical German food for a fair price, always using local and fresh products. Not far away there are several interesting places of interest such as the nearby observation tower and the watermill, the famous Dinosaur footprints, the classic car museum and observatory in Melle, the excavation and archaeological site of the famous Varus battle (between Arminius and the Romans), and the old diocesan town of Osnabrück where there are several beautiful churches and interesting museums. The Osnabrück Zoo is also very popular. Approx. 30 km away is the cloth-making museum in Bramsche.
