Rated "Three Stars Superior" again

Rated Three Stars SuperiorDear Guest,

Due to the claim "More transparency for guests", the German Hotel and Restaurant Association (DEHOGA) estab­lished in 1996 an official hotel classi­fi­cation system. Guests are given an expres­sive and reliable short message about quality standards of hotels within a star symbol scheme. The diver­sity of establish­ments is taken into account by 270 criteria. Aspects of the general conditions of the buil­ding, the furni­ture and the basics of accomo­dation facili­ties are included.

With this in mind, we are proud to inform you that our hotel was again rated "Three Stars" - an "accommo­dation for greater demands". In addition, the suffix "Superior" indicates excellent hotels that have points well beyond the points that are necessary in their category and whose overall impression over­tops the excepted in their category.

With great pleasure and engagement, our "Three Stars Superior" hotel offers a high degree of service and an accomo­dation over and above baseline requirements to you - our valued guests!

The "Small Parlour" has been lovingly restored!

The Small Parlor before/after In order to being able to offer you just the right subtle ambience for our guests, our "Small Parlour" was completely restored. Take a look at before/after by clicking the image on the left.

We were busy with brush and paint, the walls were clad with a light wood panelling and new lamps, spots, curtains and paintings embellish the room - perfect for events up to 25 people. The parlour is completely separated from the restaurant area and also ideal for smaller meetings. The "Small Parlour" looks great and we would like to invite everyone to come and take a look - and enjoy.

We are looking forward to welcoming you here at "Süßer Grund"!

Hiking News for "Traufgänger" (which sounds like "daredevils" in German)

Logo Traufgänge AlbstadtSince 2010 the Süsser Grund Hotel has been attributed with the "Qualitatsgastgeber Wanderbares Deutschland" award. Directly situated on the new Traufgänger Premium Hiking Track called "Schlossfelsenpfad" and the "Wacholderhöhe" track, Hotel Süsser Grund is the ideal starting point for wonderful walks along the Albtrauf around the city of Albstadt.

Along the perfectly designed tracks, you will find beautiful areas to stop and relax, to enjoy the nature, and forget all worries.

A wonderful panoramic view towards the Alpine Mountains awaits you on the "Schlossfelsenpfad". Paths through beech forests, encounters with wildlife in a game reserve, strange rock formations make this an unforgettable experience. Breathtaking views on the "Wacholderhöhe" of juniper, the "Tailfinger" Castle and its moats, and silver thistle. The tour is the ideal combination of relaxation and a one of a life-time experience.
