Ringberg Hotel "Ringberg" in Suhl, Thuringia
Go to page
During our visit of Thuringia in 2006 we stayed most the time in Suhl. My son has moved his company for specialty lubricants to this town and he is very happy about that. Suhl has an excellent location because many new built "Autobahns" make it easy accessible.
Whenever we traveled around Suhl a huge building on a mountain top raised my interest - the Ringberg Hotel.
One day I decided to visit it and I was impressed and more visits followed. Even when I did not book a room there, I thought it should become a part of our Internet tourist guide. This web site should only give you brief information what to expect and it does not replace the official site. For any information you must use the provided contact information of the Ringberg Hotel
Help with directions:
If you are coming from Suhl follow the sign to Ilmenau. After a few kilometers you will see advertising of the resort hotel at your left side.
For prices and events please visit the official English web site:
Naturally we did not see the building so clear without using looking glasses. When I arrived there after a nice and short drive from Suhl on a winding road up the Thuringian forest I was not disappointed.
Lots of free parking directly around the hotel which is considered to be a resort, clean air and beautiful sights on the country.
My impression that this building was constructed before the reunification of Germany was soon confirmed. It was opened as a holiday home for farmers in 1979 who were allowed to stay here if they belonged to the right association.
Even after extensive renovations the interior of the hotel has still an old fashioned touch which created for me an interesting atmosphere.
I liked it because it was so different and had its own character. It reminded me at the so called "good old time" which was really not so good.
As we learned the "Ringberg Hotel" has a 3-star rating which ensured that you must not pay an arm and a leg. Everything was clean and new installed elevators provide easy access to all floors and facilities at least as far as I could see.
The view we always had
Obviously the hotel is not only preferred by individual visitors buy also by large organizations and companies for seminars and training courses.
I saw this morning many cars parked with license plates from the German Bundeswehr.
Breakfast time was already over and it was still too early for lunch.
For that reason I did not see too many people in the hotel. Most of the individual guests were enjoying the surrounding nature as I noticed later when I saw them walking.
Numerous specials and events are offered to the visitors. Please check the official web site and watch our slide show.
I do not want to repeat all that and maintain it as part of my brief information.
Nobody at the bar at 10:00 am!
Reception at Christmas time (Many thanks for the picture)
This areal view gives you a good impression about the location of the "Ringberg Hotel" which I consider to be a resort because it offers so many amenities, such as a heated indoor pool, sauna, exercise equipment, free introduction course for Nordic Walking, and many events.
Maybe one day we pamper ourselves and take advantage of a special offer.
I received excellent support from the friendly management of this unique hotel in form of hundreds of images.
As expected they also show what a great place this resort is at every season, especially also during winter. Just enjoy browsing through some of the images and visit our slide show.
Using the pictures I prepared that slide show which gives you very fast an impressions what to expect. Just use the link below to access it.
Many thanks for this aerial view to the management of the resort
