Nestled in the rolling, picturesque hills of the southern Taunus, the town of Kelkheim enjoys all the advantages of a healthy forest climate while offering good connections to the Rhine-Main area. Kelkheim is still a relatively young city; Prince Philipp of Hesse gave the new large municipality its city charter in 1938.

Kelkheim took on its current form in 1977 through the incorporation of further municipalities. The hiking trails and rich history along the way provide plenty of variety. It’s no surprise that even the ancient Romans raved about Kelkheim and its surroundings. You can visit the world-famous baths in the foothills of the Taunus or the historic churches of the Usinger Land – you’ve got both nature and culture right on the hotel doorstep.

Kelkheim also offers something for its sporty guests with a golf course and forest climbing park in close proximity to the hotel.

Frankfurt am Main

The metropolis is so close you can see it – guests at the Waldhotel immediately spot the real highlight of Frankfurt am Main. The city’s skyline is matched by no other in Europe. But that’s not all: the metropolis on the Main River does not only impress with trade fairs and banks. Literally in the shadow of the skyscrapers, visitors will discover the famous hospitality of the traditional Ebbelwoi pubs, which serve the local cider.

Römer, Paulskirche, Goethehaus – in Frankfurt, German history is all around you. Tourism specialists tell us what the Main metropolis embodies for them, “A lively city, where you’re not surprised to hear many different languages in the streets.” Guests of the Waldhotel in Kelkheim also get to know another valuable aspect of Frankfurt am Main – after the chaos of the stock exchange, the stress of the trade fair or a day exploring the old town, you can always return to the peace and comfort of nature.

Rhein Main

Economic region, urban centre, transport hub – many titles for one region. And almost all of them revolve around business, because the heart of the economy beats in this region.

The main artery is without a doubt Frankfurt Airport. Along with the main train station in Frankfurt, the ultra modern ICE high-speed train terminal at the airport brings passengers to destinations in all directions on a high frequency timetable. The region is also known for its well-linked network of motorways. The Waldhotel actively uses this high volume of traffic to attract guests. A quick connection to nature – that’s our motto.



Rest and relaxation in the open countryside. An idyllic landscape surrounded by open fields and meadows. And let’s not forget a romantic stream…But where can you find that these days?

You don’t need to look far, even in the heart of the Rhine-Main region. The Sportpark Kelkheim is the place for you. Here you can enjoy a wide variety of recreational activities such as indoor-climbing, badminton or gulf.

This gem, with a history spanning over 850 years, is located between Frankfurt and Wiesbaden, just a few kilometres from the centre of both cities and Frankfurt Airport. It is also host to many markets, festivals, concerts and other cultural events.
