The Ringhotels hotel association comprises approximately 130 hotels in the 4-star and upper 3-star categories throughout Germany and The Netherlands. Ringhotels are usually individually operated, offer attentive service and a personal ambience. The emotive values of tradition, regionalism and trust are ‘lived’ in the Ringhotels. All of the establishments, many of which have been family-run for generations, impressively mirror the authentic traditions of their respective regions. From typical Black Forest houses in Southern Germany and traditional half-timbered houses in the central regions, through the thatched houses of the North, to unique hotels in fairy tale palaces, imposing castles and enchanting manor houses - every hotel is charmingly individual.
