Mountain Hotel Hoher Knochen

With heart and soul

The Berghotel Hoher Knochen, located south of the Kahler Asten, on one of the highest forest clearings, is managed with a lot of heart and very personally by the Kevekordes family. The unique location of the four-star hotel at 670 meters above sea level in Schmallenberg-Westfeld, near Winterberg and in the middle of the forests of the Rothaargebirge, is particularly suitable for a nature-oriented, relaxing vacation. The Berghotel Hoher Knochen is a true place of power and an ideal starting point for meditative hikes in summer and extended cross-country skiing tours in winter.
