History, wherever you may look

Villa Botsch

Right beside our hotel, all but in our arms, is the time-honoured Villa Botsch.


The “Maschinenfabrik und Eisengießerei Gebrüder Botsch” was a machine factory and iron foundry in Bad Rappenau. The company existed from 1865 until 1975. It gained significance primarily in the late 19th and early 20th century through a number of patents for machines and devices for the mechanization of farming businesses. Sowing- and mowing machines made by the brothers Botsch were sold internationally. 

This is how colourful and versatile our home is ...

This you need to see and experience! From gorgeous gardens to exciting moments at the salt mine or the Experimenta.



What may sound like no more than a new viral trend to most is far more than that! Forest-Bathing verifiably and sustainably improves our health. An extended visit to the forest strengthens your body, mind and soul, resulting in a long-lasting and pleasant effect. During forest bathing, relaxation and mindfulness exercises are carried out under expert guidance during the stay in the forest, movement, consciously going into silence and breathing in the healing active substances of the trees also contribute to an increase in well-being.
