Surrounded by meadows, forests and rolling moorland is the North German town of Rotenburg, where you can experience "pure romance" (Hamburger Abendblatt) at the Landhaus Wachtelhof - Boutique Hotel & Spa. This luxury  hotel is located about 80 kilometers south of Hamburg, and west of the picturesque Lüneburg Heath in the federal state of Lower Saxony.

In the pine-wood rooms, warm colors and natural materials such as wool carpets provide a cosy atmosphere. The Wachtelhof-Therme (their thermal spa) is also unique in the north of Germany. Float under the dome of the lagoon pool and experience oriental flair in the steam bath with its starry sky. Alternatively, you can enjoy an energy stone massage or a bath for two in rose-petal water (additional fees apply). The in-house spa has been awarded two lilies by the Relax Guide and classed as "exceptional".

The kitchen also has several awards, including one from the German gourmet magazine Der Feinschmecker. The hotel restaurant Wachtelei (meaning quail egg) serves high-quality regional cuisine. You can dine on carpaccio of Angusfilet with truffle cream or Loup de Mer with aubergine confit. There is also a choice of 180 wines to choose from.

The conservatory offers views of the manicured landscaped gardens and the old alders. At teatime you can take coffee and cake here. On Fridays and Saturdays, pianists from the region play in the lobby and in the hotel restaurant.

On the lowland hiking trails nearby there are small lakes within extensive forest areas you can explore. Golfers can head to Golf Club Wümme (subject to weather conditions; additional fees apply), which is around 15 minutes' drive from the hotel.
