Welcome to the Waldhotel Friedrichroda

The story:

The property is about 140 years old in its origin. It was a recreation home, rural youth home, military hospital and always changed hands (German, American, Russian and again German).

After the reunification in 1989 the house was still owned by the Weimar factory “Kombinat Fortschritt”. It was renamed and converted from the holiday home “Ernst Thälmann” to Hotel “Im Grund”.

On 01 June 1994 it became the property of Gerd Bloch & Matthias Kühmel. They founded the Bloch/Kühmel GbR. From 03 October 1994 to mid March 1995 the hotel was renovated and modernised on its own.

Since November 2000 it has been in the sole possession of the Bloch family. Over the years many things have been changed and rebuilt. Like the sauna area, the buffet room, the wheelchair accessible holiday apartment and the parking lot.

On 01 July 2015 the daughter of the house, Peggy Bloch, took over the hotel under the following name:

Waldhotel Friedrichroda
