Hotel Pfalzblick Wald and SPA Resort
Very nice wellness hotel near Dahn and close to the forest and hiking region of Pfalz. The Hotel Pfalzblick Wald and SPA Resort is sure to become one of our favourite hotels in Germany. It offers everything we want for a perfect holiday: a great wellness area, delicious food, very friendly staff and a perfect location in the middle of a beautiful hiking region. (de|en)
Modern large room with beautiful balcony
05/2022 We booked a double room in the category "Sonnenhang", which is in a separate new building with a beautiful view of the bathing lake. The room is very modernly furnished and the balcony is gorgeous. Our room was particularly spacious as it is actually a room suitable for disabled. It should be noted that all double rooms in this wing on the 5th floor are accessible without stairs or lift. Only in the main house you have to go down one floor, but there is also a lift. On the 5th floor the double rooms all have a spacious balcony and on the 4th floor a terrace. The room itself is very well equipped, also the minibar is free of charge and refilled daily. The beds were very comfortable and the sofa could be converted into an extra bed. In the bathroom we only had a floor-level shower because of the disabled access, the other rooms seem to have a shower and extra bathtub.
Cosy restaurant with high-quality food
The restaurant is divided into four areas, each with a different design. It also has a nice big sun terrace with a great view of the lake and the town of Dahn. What we liked very much about the hotel is the full-board concept, which is not so common in German hotels. This includes a rich breakfast buffet, lunch snacks, coffee and cake and dinner. Vegetarian and vegan options are always catered for, and there is always a wide choice. The dishes are very tasty and nicely presented. Water is available free of charge all day and coffee or tea is included in the afternoon, when you have the cake buffet.
Hike on the
The location of Hotel Pfalzblick is perfect for hiking. Several trails start directly behind the hotel or branch off there. We chose a 6 km hike to the Lämmerfelsen, which you can also see from the restaurant. This is a very beautiful rock group with a great view of the surrounding area and Dahn. If you hike there, you should take care to choose the path directly at the rocks, that is definitely the more beautiful one. We then continued to the Büttelfels with its "balcony" and back past the Braut und Bräutigam rocks, which are directly behind the hotel. A nice round that is easy to do.
It is also worth visiting the castle in Dahn, which is built into the sandstone formations. However, we went there by car, but you could also walk from the hotel and then take a look at the town of Dahn.
Beautiful wellness area with sauna island
The SPA and wellness area is one of the highlights of the hotel. There is a swimming lake where you can swim. When we were there, however, the water was only 18 degrees, which was too fresh for us. In the lake and accessible via a bridge is the modern sauna island - our highlight. There are two relaxation rooms with water beds and swings on the upper floor, as well as a terrace. On the ground floor are the saunas: a Finnish sauna, bio sauna and a steam bath, as well as showers and the possibility to go into the lake via the terrace.
In addition to this modern unit, there is another sauna area in the older part of the hotel, but it also has everything: a Finnish sauna, bio sauna, steam bath, foot baths and whirlpool as well as an indoor pool and rest area. We particularly liked the heated loungers there, otherwise the loungers in the newer area are more comfortable.
From the indoor pool, you can easily get to the new extension, where there are more loungers and waterbeds. There is also a "living and dining room" with small free meals from the buffet and drinks. These can also be enjoyed on the beautiful terrace. Right next to it is the outdoor pool, which invites you to linger with its water temperature of almost 30 degrees and offers many great water massage elements.
