... the Pfälzerwald experience!

The Palatinate from its most beautiful side

The Palatinate is an outdoor paradise and still offers many quiet corners waiting to be discovered by you. Here in the Palatinate Mill Country and in the surrounding Palatinate Forest, you will experience diversity: cycling and hiking tours through water-rich valleys and dense mixed forest areas, past hills with great views and impressive rock formations made of red sandstone. Pure enjoyment of nature!

Those who like to swing the golf club will find two scenic courses in the immediate vicinity. Our little guests have fun with pony rides and bumper cars - both are possible directly on our hotel grounds. Shopping enthusiasts will also get their money's worth. For example, the Zweibrücken Fashion Outlet is only 25 minutes away by car.


Lace up your hiking boots and off you go. The Sickinger Höhenweg passes directly by our front door, which scores points among other things with far-reaching views all the way to Alsace and the Saarland. Other designated hiking tours in the Palatinate mill country such as the chapel path, the water show path in the Meilbächeltal or the stone castle path are in the immediate vicinity.

Other popular hiking destinations await you in the surrounding area: The Dahner Felsenland (Dahner Rock Country) attracts with numerous rock formations and castles, the Rodalber Felsenwanderweg (Rodalb Rock Hiking Trail) opens up the most beautiful corners around the town that gives it its name.

With a road bike, gravel bike or touring bike you are well and varied on your way in our mill country. We can especially recommend the Sickinger Mühlenradweg, which of course also passes the Weihermühle. You can find this and all other routes on the Südwestpfalz cycle map, which is offered by Südwestpfalz Touristik e.V.. The region is also the training ground of cycling legend Udo Bölts, who took part in the Tour de France 12 times and is known for the saying "Quäl dich, du Sau". If you're lucky, you might meet him when he stops for a short break.

In the immediate vicinity of our country hotel are the most beautiful golf courses in the region. The Golfclub Westpfalz on the edge of the Sickinger Höhe offers technical challenges and fast greens as well as fantastic views. Playing on the 18-hole course and in between letting your eyes wander into the distance - golfing becomes an unforgettable experience.

The Pfälzerwald golf course on the outskirts of Waldfisch-Burgalben also offers 18 holes and a wonderful view over the Palatinate. On the 56 hectare course, sporty, demanding playing conditions and scenic surroundings complement each other. Both courses are only a few minutes by car from our country hotel.


To keep our little guests entertained, we have not only a natural children's playground on the hotel grounds, but also two additional offers. With the ponies from our pony stable, children accompanied by an adult can discover the historic pony trail. Pony riding takes place on Sundays from April to September.

There are even more animals to discover here in the Mühlental. We breed Heck cattle, which are allowed to graze outside all year round - just a stone's throw from the hotel.

For the kids who really need action, we have created a bumper car course. There our little hotel guests can try out their driving skills in mini-scooters and do laps.
