How to get there

 

If you are driving 

From the North:

* take the highway A7 towards Kassel * leave the A7 at the exit (petrol station) Hildesheimer Börde * the petrol station building has an exit next to it on the right hand side, so you pass about half of the length of the petrol station building on the right and then leave the rest stop on a road towards Bad Salzdetfurth (there is a sign that marks the road – so if you drive slowly and stay on the right hand side of the station, you cannot miss it). * at the crossroads, turn right towards Bad Salzdetfurth * The next village is called HEINDE. Follow the main road through the village. * In the village called GROß DÜNGEN turn right at the traffic lights, towards Bad Salzdetfurth. * In WESSELN, just past the village sign, turn right, again towards Bad Salzdetfurth. * A couple of hundred meters behind the sign telling you that you have entered a village called DETFURTH there is a church on the left hand side. Some hundred meters further on you need to turn right – the street is called AN DER PEESEL. * The street goes uphill. You’ll be able to spot the hotel on the right hand side, once you’ve turned into the street.

From the South:

* follow the highway A7 towards Hannover. * leave the A7 at the exit (rest stop) Hildesheimer Börde * The rest stop has an exit which seems to lead towards the rest stop building proper, but you need to turn right before you reach the petrol station, following a sign towards Bad Salzdetfurth. * At the crossroads turn right (follow the road that goes below the bridge), and follow the sign towards Bad Salzdetfurth * The next village is called HEINDE. Follow the main road through the village. * In the village called GROß DÜNGEN turn right at the traffic lights, towards Bad Salzdetfurth. * In WESSELN, just past the village sign, turn right, again towards Bad Salzdetfurth. * A couple of hundred meters behind the sign telling you that you have entered a village called DETFURTH there is a church on the left hand side. Some hundred meters further you need to turn right – the street is called AN DER PEESEL. * The street goes uphill. You’ll be able to spot the hotel on the right hand side, once you’ve turned into the street.

From the East and West:

* At the crossing of highways A2 and A7 (Kreuz Hannover-Ost) take the A7 towards Kassel. * leave the A7 at the exit (petrol station) Hildesheimer Börde. * the petrol station building has an exit next to it on the right hand side, so you pass about half of the length of the petrol station building on the right and then leave the rest stop on a road towards Bad Salzdetfurth (there is a sign that marks the road – so if you drive slowly and stay on the right hand side of the station, you cannot miss it). * at the crossroads, turn right towards Bad Salzdetfurth * The next village is called HEINDE.

If you are taking the train

Destination station: Bad Salzdetfurth Solebad

From one of the major surrounding train stations take the Lammetalbahn to Bad Salzdetfurth (really really important information: go to the station called Bad Salzdetfurth Solebad) (Link to map of the Lammetalbahn) or take the eurobahn from Hildesheim to Bad Salzdetfurth (Link to German Rail). From the station it’s about 200m to walk to the hotel.

Follow the platform and take the bridge over the brook – follow the path through the small park and alongside the “Solebad” (saline baths). You’ll reach a road called “Solebadstraße”. Follow it until it terminates when it reaches the L490. Turn left and follow the L490 for a bit, until you reach a pedestrian crossing with a traffic light. Cross the street and turn right into a street called “An der Peesel”. The hotel is the first building on the right hand side.

If you are flying in

The best airport to fly to is Hannover Langenhagen. From there, take the S-Bahn (regional/local train) to Hameln main station. In Hameln you need to change to the eurobahn to Bad Salzdetfurth. (Alternatively you can also take the S-Bahn to Hannover main station, take the regional train to Hildesheim from there, and change to the eurobahn in Hildesheim.)
