Our hospitable side – Viessmann hotels and restaurants
Eat, sleep, meet, celebrate, and relax – Viessmann hotels and restaurants provide a unique atmosphere to come and explore northern Hesse, both professionally and privately.
HBB Hotelbetriebsgesellschaft Battenberg operates four hotel and restaurant businesses in northern Hesse’s Waldeck-Frankenberg district. As the operator of the Viessmann Group’s Hospitality area, it offers opportunities for overnight stays, conferences, business lunches, company parties but also for a little R & R, wellness, and family celebrations in close proximity to the company headquarters in Allendorf (Eder) in northern Hesse. The services are targeted towards company employees, business partners and their employees as well as the general public. HBB is a wholly owned subsidiary of the Viessmann Group and has existed as a separate business unit since July 2008. The commercial airfield Allendorf / Eder provides connections to the region.
Warm hospitality with passion
Our slogan is: “We create exceptional moments of joy in a unique atmosphere. All done with warmth and passion.”
During the week, the Group’s hotels and restaurants offer a perfect setting to host local or international customers, business partners, and employees while they’re visiting Viessmann and to accommodate them in a pleasant atmosphere. The hotels and restaurants also offer superb conditions for a variety of events, ranging from workshops to conferences and company celebrations.
The facilities and dining establishments are also available to the public and help bolster the rural area’s economic and tourist infrastructure. For one, the hotels and restaurants offer locals the opportunity to fine dine, relax, or celebrate. The hotels and restaurants are also attractions for outside visitors to the region, who, for example, want to admire the half-timbered ensemble of buildings in the historic old town of Frankenberg, relax in the Kellerwald-Edersee National Park, dine in a star-rated restaurant, explore the surroundings in a vintage car, or treat themselves to naturopathic therapies in the spa. Four dining establishments are included.
Hotel Die Sonne Frankenberg
Hotel Die Sonne Frankenberg is located in the heart of the idyllic half-timbered town, right next to the town hall with ten towers. Brauerei-Gasthaus Sonne on the picturesque Old Town’s market square has existed since 1538. In 2006, Viessmann converted the historic half-timbered ensemble of buildings into a country hotel and expanded it in 2009 with another historic building featuring a new wellness area and additional rooms. The distinguished hotel currently features 63 rooms and suites in total. The two in-house restaurants provide a variety of culinary delights.
Nature-inspired gourmet cuisine
Philipp Soldan serves nature-inspired gourmet cuisine created by Chef Erik Arnecke, who prefers to use high-quality and original products all locally sourced from the Hesse region. The top restaurant was awarded one star by the Michelin Guide and 17 points by Gault-Millau and is open to all guests. Our restaurants are welcoming, easy-going, and transparent. There are no strict rules to worry about here.
Fresh ingredients from the Eder Uplands
Awarded a Bib Gourmand, amazing taste experiences await our guests in a relaxed atmosphere. Timo Schröder and Markus Willich use first-class ingredients from seasonal and regional cultivation and meat and fish from selected breeding farms, process them with great care and creativity and serve them with great attention. They form the team with a passion for culinary art and a sense of culinary identity.
Sonne Stuben >
Landgut Walkemühle was first officially mentioned in a document in 1358 when it was still a grain mill. Only later was it transformed into a fulling mill. Just a few decades ago, it was operated as a spinning and combing plant by the former owners. Since the extensive renovation works from 2007 to 2010, the mill wheel now has a new purpose: it propels a generator that produces around 80,000 kilowatt hours of electrical energy every year. The nearly 660-year-old fulling mill now complies with the latest energy standards. Landgut Walkemühle serves a wide selection of fresh, crisp, and predominantly regional culinary specialties, such as light snacks and Sunday roasts, in its restaurant, courtyard garden, and on its patio. The new event barn is the perfect location for all kinds of celebrations, whether country weddings, company anniversaries, family reunions, or company meetings.
Gasthaus Alt Battenberg
In the small town of Battenberg (Eder), Gasthaus Alt Battenberg is located in the historic buildings of an old riding school and stagecoach station. The Gast Stube and Café Stube invite visitors to eat, drink, and savor traditional fare. The Burgberg Stube, on the other hand, lets you have a real good time, no matter if there’s a family celebration such as baptism or wedding coming up or a company Christmas party.
It is also located in Battenberg and in direct vicinity to the company headquarters in Allendorf (Eder). The former hunting lodge and adjacent wing – built right in the middle of a spacious park and garden area – are equipped with 55 rooms. The guesthouse, however, is not open to the public to stay at but is strictly reserved for the accommodation of company guests – such as in-house staff or employees of partner companies who come for training. The seminar rooms in the hunting lodge and the neighboring seminar tower offer ideal conditions for workshops and network meetings. A spacious dining room with terrace, pub, and bowling alley ensure an eventful day at the Viessmann Academy is wrapped up socializing.
