About 90 minutes north of Hamburg is Hohwacht right at the Baltic Sea. Gentle hills, meadowsand rapeseed fields. The hotel has three thatched houses. They offer serveral individual opportunities for single travellers, couples, families and groups - for relaxing holidays, unforgettable events or professional seminars.
The main building "Schiff", right on the shore: ocean sounds and the scent of salt water included. Fishing boats and seagulls pass by. Beyond the dike, 300 meters inland: The Genueser Country House and the Chimney House. In the middle of a conservation area. Sonorous silence in the deep black night. Only the moon is bright and clear in the sky. And the stars twinkle. In good weather, all hotel guests can have breakfast in a beach chair.

The Sound of The Sea

Why do we love the sea? Because of its infinite expanse? Because of the white-crested waves crashing onto the beach? Or because we simply like to get a breath of sea air? Here in our Hotel Genueser Schiff we have been asking ourselves this question every day for decades. But so far we have found only one answer:
Because the sea makes us happy.

Three Minutes to The Beach

Unfortunately, it is not easy to find peace and quiet, and we long to shut down our operating systems once in a while. Come to Hohwacht and switch off at the Genueser Country House, located in the middle of its own nature reserve and just a three-minute walk from the sea, miles away from everyday life. All you hear is silence and all you feel is blissful tranquility.

Close to Nature

They say that nature does us good, and that's why we love going to places where we find tranquillity, a beautiful view, the scent of green grass and places to go for a walk, a hike or a swim. Our 'Kaminhaus' (Chimney House) is ideal for people who want to get away from the hectic pace of everyday life. As well as all the benefits of an independently run hotel, this is where you can enjoy nature at its purest.
