A woof vacation

Dogs are welcome at these five lovely dog-friendly hotels in Germany. Check in and feel right at home!

Landhaus Severin*s Morsum Kliff, Sylt

I wonder if the dogs like the view as much as their masters do. In the middle of the nature reserve Morsum Kliff – on the North Sea island Sylt – it is so beautiful that you should go there once in your life. Surrounded by heath landscape and with a view of the Wadden Sea, lies the dignified Landhaus Severin*s with its 13 cozy and modern furnished rooms. However, the fur noses probably rather appreciate the vastness of the beach. They can fetch sticks and then throw themselves uninhibitedly into the waves. 

The country house offers just like the associated Severin*s Resort & Spa all year round arrangements for the accompanying four-legged friends: From dog beds to dog towels, bowls, treats, walker bags – to an outdoor dog shower at the entrance and a dog sitter for a fee. The all-around dog care package costs 30 euros a day extra.

Hotel Indigo, Duesseldorf

At the Boutique Hotel Indigo in Düsseldorf in North Rhine-Westphalia, not only guests enjoy the comfortable hotel service, but also their dogs. The 4-star service for four-legged friends includes food bowls, beds, blankets and treats freshly baked by a hotel employee. A dog sitter as well as a walk service take care if the owners want to be out and about in Düsseldorf without a dog. The rooms are particularly spacious and the four-legged travel companions may also together with their owners in the hotel-own restaurant [a]dress kitchen & bar. Simply dog-tastic!

me and all Hotel, Ulm

Modern, yet cozy – that’s the new me and all hotel in Ulm in the southern German state of Baden-Württemberg. Whether in the 147 rooms, in the lobby, on the roof terrace or in the restaurant – clear lines and puristically staged materials – such as golden washbasins, exposed concrete, industrial glass and solid wood – set accents. Illustrations by Ulm-based artist Letterbube are modern eye-catchers. In addition, a green thread runs visibly through the hotel: flower nets and climbing plants decorate the rooms and lobby. This makes even the four-legged guests feel right at home. This is also ensured by Lill’s Organic Dog Store with plastic-free dog beds, toys and treats in the rooms.

Hotel Pharisäerhof, North Beach

A large, fenced-in free run right next to the house, a cuddly dog basket in every room, a dog spa and a treat as a welcome: hosts and dog lovers Kirsten and Detlef Scheler have thought of everything at their Pharisäerhof in the seaside resort of Nordstrand on the German North Sea. “With barking and good mood” the days pass here like in the flight. And that’s also the name of the dog arrangement, because dogs are not only welcome here, but expressly desired. The 28 double and family rooms are dog-friendly equipped and in the Café Schwips as well as in the restaurant the quadrupeds can order themselves even from the sorts of the internal first north Strander MuKu ice manufactory a genuine dog ice.

Papa Rhine Hotel & Spa, Bingen

On the charming cultural waterfront in Bingen, surrounded by vineyards, lies the stylish Papa Rhein Hotel & Spa. The tranquil town of Bingen is the gateway to the idyllic Middle Rhine Valley and is considered an insider tip on the edge of the otherwise busy metropolitan region. With beautiful lounges, cozy bars and a rooftop pool, the Papa Rhein offers guests a modern-casual vacation flair with high standards. With the generous Spa a true oasis for switching off was created here.

With its location and facilities, it is the perfect place for active people, connoisseurs and wine lovers – and dog owners. Because everything is available for the four-legged companions: Bowl, cuddly cushion and the Gassi-Sackl for extensive walks along the banks of the Rhine. Dogs cost an additional 15 euros per night (without food).
