Welcome to Münster in North Rhine-Westphalia, a green city with an old town center and plenty of potential for recreation. Germany’s cycling capital offers nearby lakelands and leisure activities in the harbor area, as well as a wide range of cultural activities. Enjoy the green city best from the Best Western Premier Seehotel Krautkrämer, which is a guarantee for relaxation due to its idyllic location in Münster Hiltrup.
A relaxed and pleasant atmosphere was also sought by the Dutch national soccer team, which checked into the hotel in 1974 in order to be optimally prepared for the World Cup. Unlike today, the hotel was not reserved exclusively for the team. A so called spaetzle-representative from Stuttgart checked in at the same time, who later turned out to be a journalist. The celebrating footballers became the headline and especially their superstar Johan Cuyff got into trouble after he was spotted with naked girls in the pool and got confronted by his wife who stayed at home.
The sleepless nights that followed are said – according to legend – to have been the cause of the defeat to Germany and go down in the history of the hotel as the Krautkrämer-Affair.
Hotel amenities and leisure opportunities
During my stay, I wasn’t disturbed by ‘Spaetzle–journalists“ or party-loving soccer teams, as the lakeside hotel has far more to offer than a scandalous football story. Wellness fans will get their money’s worth thanks to aromatherapy-oil-massages, facials, a visit to the finnish-sauna, or time out in the hotel’s pool. Put on your fluffy bathrobe and make your way to the back massage or enjoy a snack on the sea-terrace. Click through the treatments. Relaxation is pre-programmed here!
The hotel offers rental bikes for all those who also want to experience nature and enjoy the beautiful Münsterland. Explore the surrounding bike paths or even the old town of Münster. Click here for great bike routes or discover the cultural highlights of Münster.
Culinary pleasure at Best Western Premier Seehotel Krautkrämer
You get to choose between four options for culinary indulgence at the hotel. Start your day in the Diele & Upkammer with freshly brewed coffee, omelets, hearty service, and warm croissants. In the afternoon, you’ll find homemade cakes that make the perfect snack after an extensive spa treatment.
The Krautkrämer restaurant picks you up with seasonal dishes, regional delicacies and lovingly selected wines. The Cabaret, being the heart of the house, invites you to an enchanting end to the day. Here you’ll find unusual whiskeys and tasty aperitifs, as well as background music and stimulating conversations.
But you can get delicious drinks in a nice atmosphere even before the evening. Try a cool white wine or freshly tapped beer on the lakeside terrace. The beautiful view and the courteous service staff will take away your last worries!
My time at the Best Western Premier Hotel Krautkrämer was a magical experience and recharged my energy batteries. Would you like to get away from it all and daydream by sparkling lakes during a relaxing massage?
