In the middle of the hilly forest landscape of North Hesse, there is a real Heppstar: the renowned Hotel Hohenhaus. Surrounded by untouched nature, guests will find an idyllic retreat on the former manor. Johann Sebastian Bach, who came from nearby Eisenach, was probably inspired by the picturesque panorama of the region to create his world-famous symphonies. The time out in the Central German scenery certainly brings no less inspiring and dreamy holiday memories to the visitors of the Hotel Hohenhaus.
The five-star hotel stands out not only for its special location. In the past few years, the historic site has been modernized and expanded with a keen sense for the historical building fabric. The house now has a conference and event barn and has been connected to the fiber optic network. The three in-house restaurants “La Vallée Verte - The Green Valley”, “Hohenhaus Grill” and “Café Hohenhaus” are a special highlight and the pride of hotel director Peter Niemann.
Ingredients From Their Own Land
“La Vallée Verte” impresses as an intimate gourmet restaurant with outstanding quality - a Michelin star and top ratings from various restaurant guides speak for themselves here. The unique combination of products from the region and from France can be seen as a unique culinary selling point of “La Vallée Verte”. The popular catchphrase of “regional products” is taken to extremes here: wild artichokes, aromatic forest mint and spicy cress are collected on the company's own herb meadows, while fresh mushrooms and game can be found in the associated forest. Even water, sheep, eggs and honey are served only from our own production - 60 bee colonies, three mineral water springs and the sheep breeding of Gut Hohenhaus make it possible.
The "Hohenhaus Grill" is a bit more traditional, but no less high-quality and with a focus on sustainability. Even well-known classics such as venison sausage or veal chops get that certain something here and become real delicacies. Very special culinary delights can be found during the game season. Deer, wild boar and the like come freshly from the in-house game slaughterhouse. In summer one can dine on one of the sun terraces with a wonderful view of the valley.
High Quality Aesthetics
As a trained chef, Peter Niemann focuses on the highest quality in three restaurants. This applies to the food used as well as to kitchen utensils, crockery and cutlery. In order to do justice to the noble ambience of the guest rooms, only silver cutlery from Hepp is used in “La Vallée Verte” in the “Café Hohenhaus” and in the “Hohenhaus Grill”. The traditional yet timeless design of the Kreuzband collection fits seamlessly into the table design and underlines the harmonious interplay of historical and modern elements in the Hotel Hohenhaus. All pieces of cutlery were also given an individual stamp to clearly assign them to the house. The look, feel and high-quality workmanship of the Hepp silver cutlery thus underline the Hotel Hohenhaus promise of quality.
