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.

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.
