How our guests rate us
All ratings

Simply switch off, leave everyday life behind - this is perfectly possible at the newly renovated Hotel FreiWerk. While the picturesque village of Stolberg with its medieval half-timbered streets lies in the valley below, the hotel is enthroned high up on the Thyrahöhe with a spectacular view of the unique Harz natural landscape. In the exquisite restaurant "20zwanzig", the cuisine focuses on an authentic style with fresh, seasonal products and exquisite wines.

Gastgeber Romantik Hotel FreiWerk

Your host

The hotel belongs to the Ritter von Kempinski private hotels, which have put a lot of attention to detail into the expansion and extension of the house. The aim is to preserve what is old and special in the region of central Germany and to create a place for guests that combines tradition with the spirit of the times. The story of the Ritter von Kempinski private hotels began over 20 years ago when Dr. Clemens Ritter von Kempinski discovered his love for the region and sustainable forestry. To this day, he does everything he can to preserve the small and large treasures of the region.

A heart for nature

Regional rooting

Simply switch off, push the hustle and bustle of the world far away, listen to the whisper of the trees - nowhere does that better than here. The Freiwerk combines history and modernity, tradition and zeitgeist.

While Stolberg's medieval half-timbered streets nestle in the valley below, the charming house is enthroned high above with a fantastic view.

The love of conscious enjoyment is also reflected in the kitchen. A passion for special ingredients, perfect preparation and cordial service - where this comes together, great things are created.

Wellness & Entspannung im Harz

FreiWerk Vitalbereich
FreiWerk Vitalbereich

The small but fine FreiWerk vitality area with saunas, ice fountain, relaxation room and fitness area is a haven of peace that makes the hustle and bustle of the world seem quite far away. The warmth of the sauna relaxes the muscles, calms the mind and brings you back into harmony with your body. Equally restful and valuable is time spent in nature. Discover lush carpets of flowers in the awakening beech forest in spring, lively mountain streams and cool forest paths under a dense canopy of leaves in summer, the roaring of deer from the golden forest in autumn, and a single white splendor in winter - the southern Harz is a fairytale place for time out for two.
