Dear hotel guests,


We are happy to see that our house is filled with "life" again and that we can offer you some nice hours or days in Föckinghausen.

Upon arrival, we ask you to furnish proof of that you have been fully vaccinated at least two weeks ago or have recovered from a Covid-19 infection within the last six months. In the case of non-touristic stays, you can alternativelypresent - when arriving and again after every four days - a certified antigen test which shall not be more than 24 hours old or a PCR-test which is not older than 48 hours.


Holiday concept


Dear restaurant guests,


inside our restaurant, the "2 G" are also applicable from now on for all people above the age of 15 years: you have to be either vaccinated or recovered.

We would be happy to be able to accept all restaurant table reservations.

Unfortunately, the number of seats is sigificantly reduced due to the current Corona rules.

Therefore, we kindly ask you to reserve your table by telephone! Thank you very much!


Please note:


the so-called "AHA-rules" (keeping the required distance-practicing hygiene rules-wearing face masks) are to be observed within the entire house.

The duty to wear a mask applies in all corridors and passageways of the entire building.


 We look forward to seeing you again in Föckinhausen,

in a wonderful landscape which offers peace, nature, distance and culinary delights.


 Yours sincerely,
family Knippschild and team

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.
