Worth a trip

Experience the Hofgut

Right outside the hotel door you can go hiking, Nordic walking, jogging, cycling, golfing or in winter enjoy cross-country skiing and snowshoeing. Or just a stone’s throw away there is Lake Constance and the “four-country region” with Vorarlberg, Switzerland and Liechtenstein with its mountains big and small. We wish you a lot of fun as you go out and discover what the region has to offer.

Wildly romantic Argen riverbank

Directly in front of the door, the Argen flows by on its way into Lake Constance. Crossing the footbridge you can get to the hiking trails up to Ratzenried or along the river towards Kißlegg or Wangen.

Let off steam and have fun

Adventure playground

The children love it: conquer the castle, search for treasure chests, play castle lord and robber chief – while the parents enjoy themselves in the beer garden.

Bees and honey

Breakfast honey from the estate’s own beekeeper

Among the animal inhabitants of the Hofgut are several bee colonies. Beekeeper Christoph Will visits “his ladies” at regular intervals and provides us with delicious Hofgut honey for breakfast. Looking for a souvenir for those at home? Our Hofgut honey is available at the reception in beautifully packaged jars. Ask us about it.

Winter activities

Winter also has a lot to offer. When the bushes and trees wear white caps and ice floats on the Argen, we are drawn to the bone-chilling fresh air. If you keep moving, you won’t freeze and you’ll work up an appetite for our delicious winter dishes with wild game and mushrooms. In the surrounding villages, the Christmas markets attract visitors.

Tracks in the snow

Skiing and
cross-country skiing

Depending on the snow conditions, you can start your cross-country skiing trip right next door in Wangen im Allgäu or in Argenbühl. One special feature is the floodlit trail in Niederwangen. Otherwise, it is not far to the ski resorts in the Allgäu mountains, for example near Oberstaufen and Missen, or then on to Vorarlberg or Switzerland. Lots of slopes to choose from, for beginners and experts alike. A different, new experience every day, if you choose.

Winter hiking
and snowshoeing

Hiking is especially fun in winter. On foot or with snowshoes on your feet. So you can even stamp through untouched snow without sinking too far. In Wangen im Allgäu you can rent snowshoes or book guided snowshoe tours.
