Once upon a time...

Grete and Gerd Veldscholten founded the Hotel zum Märchenwald in the beautiful small town of Lingen an der Ems. The hotel was named after the adjacent forest.

The guesthouse soon became known beyond the region's borders for its hospitality and special atmosphere.

The following generation expanded the hotel in a tradition-conscious but contemporary way: over time, the former village inn became a modern hotel in which the original personal ambience and conviviality lives on.
