Relax in the resort’s hot whirlpool or enjoy the large outdoor area, where you’ll find a splash pool with a current channel, a 25-metre-long pool with a wide slide and a beach volleyball facility. Your little ones will have hours of fun in the large non-swimmers’ pool, the children’s paddling pool and the playground.
Craftsmanship and Westerwald clay
See the love of traditional craftsmanship in action at the Fürst pottery studio with its handmade Westerwald ceramics. Watch the potters at work and discover their passion for clay. And if you’re interested in practical or ornamental ceramics, you can stock up on salt-glazed stoneware in the showrooms afterwards.
Relaxed fishing in the Westerwald
Attention anglers: in Hattert, you’ll find two biotopes and eight natural fishponds on an idyllic site of over three hectares. Besides trout, you can also fish for salmon trout, char and sturgeon with no catch limits.

However, fishing is only allowed with a valid fishing licence and following prior registration!

An idyllic hiking trail in the Westerwald
The exciting Naturpfad Weltende forest walk and nature trail begins in Stein-Wingert. The hilly path winds its way along the Nister through meadows and forests all the way to the viewpoint. With the path partly secured by wire ropes, you should expect a certain degree of difficulty. But at the end of the trail, you’ll be rewarded with a beautiful view of the Nistertal (Nister Valley). And if you feel like tackling even more routes, there are plenty of other hiking trails in the Westerwald for you to explore, including the WesterwaldSteig (a quality-certified hiking trail) for example.
