Fuel up climate neutral.

Living the good. There is no better way to describe what Naturresort Schindelbruch stands for. We want to unite the beautiful things in life in one place.

With positive energy, nature in our hearts and all our passion, we work to transform the wishes and needs of our guests into lasting experiences. While the world is changing faster and faster, we have created a hotel in the southern Harz that fuses permanence, tranquility, cordiality and the art of enjoyment. What we dream of? To see you happy here!

Our roots

The Schindelbruch is full of history and stories. On the site of the princely hunting lodge built in 1928, a mountain inn was later built, followed by a company holiday home in GDR times. After reunification, the ensemble of buildings was privatized, rebuilt and the "Harzhotel im Schindelbruch" was opened. However, the property was abandoned in the 1990s.

 

 

An almost accidental discovery led Dr. Clemens Ritter von Kempski to the southern Harz region in the mid-1990s. Since then, the land around the Auerberg and the beech forests around Stolberg have never let go of him and his family. They have long felt at home here and have put down deep roots. Dr. Clemens Ritter von Kempski wants to share the feeling of happiness that nature in the Harz Mountains gives him with all his guests and staff at the Schindelbruch Nature Resort and the partner hotel FreiWerk.

Dr. Clemens Ritter von Kempski saw the potential and in 2003, with the purchase of the site, laid the foundation stone for the hotel, which today shines as a tourist beacon far beyond central Germany. He realized his vision of an ecological hotel operation. After many expansions, additions and renovations, the bathhouse was opened in 2013 - the pearl of Schindelbruch and a favorite spot for wellness guests. The resort's newest gem is the Landresidenz, which was completed in spring 2021.
