Seezeitlodge Hotel & Spa at Lake Bostal – holiday with the Celts

The Seezeitlodge Hotel & Spa in the tranquil village of Gonnesweiler is probably one of the most interesting lakeside hotels in the whole of Germany. The hotel deserves this honour not only because of its fantastic location directly on the picturesque Bostalsee lake, but also because of the extraordinary concept of the nature resort. Original hospitality and an exciting, modern design in a unique location ­– these are the qualities that a very special hotel in Saarland combines in an extraordinary way. The Celts once inhabited the land around the lake. The Celtic ring wall of Otzenhausen – a recommended excursion destination nearby – is a reminder of this historical heritage.

The host couple Kathrin and Christian Sersch let the ancient knowledge about the natural strengths of the region flow everywhere: in the wellness area, in the kitchen and in the architecture. Here it quickly becomes clear during the personal welcome immediately after arrival how much passion is invested in the project.

Nature, Celts and yet a modern establishment full of innovative design ideas? The Seezeitlodge turns this apparent contradiction into an impressive overall experience. From the very first glance at the hotel, you notice how harmoniously the building blends into the nature reserve. Floor depth windows, high rooms and a bright interior invite you to switch off and concentrate fully on relaxing. Lovingly decorated rooms in various sizes hide behind names such as “Cosy nest” and “Family nest”. A great view and all the amenities of an upscale hotel are included in all variations and prices. In- & outdoor Pool with panoramic view and a Celtic sauna village await you outside. The ritual fireplace, surrounded by small sauna houses, is the ideal place to relax.

Chef Daniel Schöfisch delights his guests in the restaurant LUMI with fresh ingredients from the region. The ingredient with the shortest distance to travel to the pots and pans is the herbs, which are picked daily in the hotel garden. Both the menu and the service are without frills. Everything is authentic, familiar and ingenious in its simplicity. In the evening, the bar NOX, where of course Celtic-inspired cocktails are also served, is a very inviting place. Bar boss Andreas Wendel is particularly proud of his own gin. The bakery of the Seezeitlodge works at night to produce fresh pastries for breakfast. The heavenly-scented bread can also be purchased in the hotel shop. A little piece of paradise to take with you when you return home.
