At home in the region

Hotel Forsthaus Heiligenberg combines family tradition and regional history. The Bruening family have owned the hotel since 1998 and have continually strived to plan and develop it with great care for the natural surroundings and the historical grounds. The Forsthaus has its name from a religious order called Praemonstratenserstift Heiligenberg based here in the middle ages.

That is why Heiligenberg was always known to attract visitors and guests from afar. The monastery, founded by the Praemonstratenser order in 1218, was a popular destination for pilgrims. Many years later, during the second half of the 17th century, the dukes of Braunschweig-Lueneburg brought courtly splendours to Heiligenberg when they hosted their hunting parties and meetings here. The foundation for today’s restaurant was laid in 1794 as a forester living on the premises was granted a pub license.
