Holiday home

By and from far the nicest vacation in Föckinghausen!

Dear guests,


Since 16 May, we are open for guests again. We cordially invite you to take a deep breath in the fresh air up here on the hill, to enjoy the far-reaching views and to re-discover the free space and freedom in nature.


Due to the reduced space available in the restaurant, we kindly ask you

to reserve your table in advance by telephone:



We look forward to seeing you again in Föckinhausen, in a wonderful landscape which offers peace, nature and culinary delights.



family Knippschild and team

Our annual closing is from 7 to 25 December 2020. We are open in November 2020.

A prime location of hospitality

In an idyllic and secluded setting at 500 m altitude, surrounded by meadows and forests, on a high plateau.

The road winds up from bottom to top, direction: recovery.

We, the family Knippschild and the Waldhouse-team, look forward to being your hosts.

Our self-conception

We from the Sauerland cherish our homeland, traditions and nature. New ideas and the zeitgeist are positive challenges to us. Our service is cordial and authentic. We take our mandate seriously and shape it in the interest of our guests. Share your experiences and special moments with us.

„Everything was very well, very nice team, have felt very much at home. Great location.”, HRS




The Knippschild family is living in this convivial house since 1746. Since many generations, it is a place with tradition. In former times, people came mainly for a summer-stay, today our guests are those seeking quietness or being in tune with nature, many of them returning regularly. For many guests, the Waldhaus is becoming a popular destination up on the hill.
