Tradition & History

Innovation from tradition

For 50 years now, it has been our ambition to give our guests joy and enrichment of life beyond their holidays. Grandma Oelkers already laid the foundation for this with her passionate hospitality and shaped her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren with a heart for the guest. When Annemarie and Wolfgang Oelkers opened the Harzhotel Romantischer Winkel in 1978, they had only the well-being of the guest at heart and transferred this concern to us together with the hotel in 2001.

RoLigio®, our wellness & life concept for more joy in life, was developed from this endeavour with the help of internationally experienced experts. The term RoLigio® is composed of the name of our hotel Romantischer Winkel and the Latin word "religare", "to reconnect".

In this sense, the RoLigio® attitude to life stems from our values, which are based on old, proven Christian principles: "Love your neighbour as yourself" and "Treat everyone as you would like to be treated". For us, this is both our corporate mission statement and our guest promise: We and all our staff wish, out of deep joy and with the heartfelt attitude of true service providers, that you feel at home with us!
