Tradition & History Hotel Romantischer Winkel
Tradition is an important part of our philosophy
For 50 years, we have aspired to provide our guests with joie de vivre and an enrichment to their lives which extends beyond their holiday. Grandma Oelkers was already laying the foundations for this in her time with her passionate sense of hospitality. Her devotion to her guests is a trait which has since been passed on to her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. When Annemarie and Wolfgang Oelkers opened the Harzhotel Romantischer Winkel in 1978, they had but one thing in mind: the well-being of their guests. This is something which they handed over to us in 2001, along with the hotel.
RoLigio®, our spa concept for the enjoyment of life, came about as a result of this ambition. This concept was developed with the help of professionals with international experience. RoLigio®, a compound of Romantischer Winkel (RoWi) and religare (Latin), meaning “reconnection”. Back to an enjoyment of nature, culture and adventure. Back to relationships and little whims.
Time and space for forgotten dreams, for old desires and new enthusiasm.
We wish that you also will be able to rediscover the truly important aspects of life and that your life continues to be enriched by your experiences here long after your holiday is over.
With warm regards, the Oelkers family
