Your 4-star hotel in North Rhine-Westphalia: country outing and talk of the town

Between nature and the world's cultural heritage

What do the Wildecker Herzbuben, Felix Magath, the Klitschko brothers and Joachim Gauck have in common? Right, they've all been here at the Voshövel. Some of them had lunch in the Gute Stube here. Others have enjoyed a short break with coffee and cakes in our attractive beer garden. What our four-star hotel in North Rhine-Westphalia offers is of course as varied as our guests.

Opposites attract

To be honest, we find that the Lower Rhine area is one of the most underrated regions in Germany. However, this may not be a bad thing. If everybody knew how wonderful it is here, the area might become a little crowded.

So let's stay as we are: surprisingly varied and diverse. A peaceful country hotel with easy access to interesting cities. Between nature and the world's cultural heritage. Between cycling routes and musicals. Between the Lower Rhine and high culture.

In the immediate vicinity of Landhotel Voshövel the Weselerwald golf club offers you an international standard, beautifully located 18-hole course which is wonderful to play, whatever your handicap. As a Landhotel guest you will receive a 20% discount on your green fee.

In the immediate vicinity of the hotel you have an additional choice of 14 different golf clubs.

To make your stay at our hotel as enjoyable as possible we have put together a number of packages for you. Regardless of whether you wish to combine golf with wellness or cycling, or would simply like to spend your whole day on the golf course … we have just the right package for you.

"95 per cent of the game is played in your head. Anyone who plays a lousy game of golf doesn't need a coach but a psychiatrist ."

Near the hotel you will also find the Dämmerwald state forest in the western section of the Hohe Mark Nature Park. With its fascinating flora and fauna the 1,500 ha state forest is a real attraction to cyclists and hikers, and is one of the most visited forest areas in the western Münsterland. The forest features an extensive network of hiking trails, a half-marathon course and the "Jacobsbrunnen" spring where trails meet.

The Loosenberge Nature Reserve is also well worth a visit. It covers 13 ha and is part of a 5 km stretch of dunes, the Drevenacker Dünen, which lies between Wesel-Obrighoven and Schermbeck-Damm on the northern edge of the Lippe Valley. The juniper bushes in the Loosenberge reserve are among the last on the Lower Rhine.
