Hotel Kaiserhof Medelon

We had a great stay at the Kaiserhof. The food was an absolute highlight! It really lived up to the name of "upscale" cuisine! On the day of our departure, we stayed until lunch on purpose...
The hosts are friendly and attentive, you notice the pleasant flair of a family business here. We are looking forward to the next visit to the hotel and still unknown hiking routes.

The hotel slogan "Where being a guest is a pleasure" is really not a phrase here!
At this family-run hotel we really enjoyed the warm service and the kind care of the guest from the welcome to the warm farewell and felt completely at home. This genuine and heartfelt hospitality is unique.

Monika Haps-Oribold

It was not just a visit, but actually a real experience. The rooms are really very high quality, tastefully and stylishly furnished. The host family is absolutely unique, humorous and warm. The food was terrific, star cuisine that more than fills you up thanks to the large portions, selected winegrowers' wines and a breakfast that is absolutely worth seeing! Our expectations were more than exceeded in all respects. We definitely recommend the hotel!


My best recommendation, for all those who enjoy excellent food and to all those who appreciate family hospitality. The two best chefs I have ever had the pleasure to dine with are cooking here! Modern and rustic cuisine combined in a great way, super quality and fair prices for the service.
Thanks again for the food to Peter and Matthias, thanks to the whole staff! It's been really great here!

A wonderful retreat with an inspired host who knows his craft and conjures up ambitious dishes. We had three days full of surprises - a fantastic breakfast, wines at their best and a relaxed and pleasant family atmosphere. It doesn't get any better than this!

Great... both cuisine and stay!
The cuisine is indeed outstanding. The chef and hotelier also caters to requests and conjures up delicacies that are rarely available elsewhere. The breakfast is also of a standard not usually experienced. Very cosy atmosphere of the hotel, also due to the staff - always a casual saying from the hip. If you don't necessarily have to stay overnight in Winterberg, you'll find a real gem in Medelon. Highly recommended.

The original welcome alone by the amusingly bizarre, extremely hard-working and committed host "Matthias" was already a great pleasure for us Rhinelanders - a great entrance.
We felt very well looked after, the dinner was really excellent, the quality first class, breakfast very varied and lovingly arranged. The rooms are very nicely furnished and the beds extremely comfortable.
We will definitely come back again!

The surroundings

Wanderlust and party mile

Medelon, a district of Medebach, is quietly situated on the eastern edge of the Rothaargebirge.

The Sauerland is known for easily accessible nature experiences – be it hiking, cycling or skiing. There are also plenty of excursion destinations such as castles, museums and lakes.

In addition to the quieter leisure options, Medelon is an excellent base for a little more “action”. Centrally located between the adventure strongholds of Willingen and Winterberg, it is only a short distance to après ski in Winterberg, to the Mountain Bike Arena or to events such as the “Bike Week Willingen” or “Viva Willingen”.

We look forward to seeing you!
