Lovely little house. Met our expectations perfectly from a cosy atmosphere 'till a very complete kitchen.
Ursula was very friendly and made us feel at home. There was fresh juice on the table and eggs from a farm nearby in the fridge. Johannes and his wife were also kind and gave us tips, They mastered the balance between personal contact and privacy perfectly.
The location was a perfect base for our cyclingholiday with the racebikes!
Really nice place to stay! The house looks exactly like on the pictures, everything was very clean, silent environment, only fifteen minutes by car from Aachen, ... In short a perfect place for a relax weekend!
Me and my girlfriend were touched by the very kind and warm host Ursula. We felt very welcome and she helped us out with information and other small things. She even invited us to use fresh herbs from her garden. At the same time we felt we had a lot of privacy in the small house next to hers.
The house is really very beautiful and atmospheric.
The area is ydillic with all the hills, and beautiful little towns. You can make hikes just starting from the front door.
We were very happy to have come accross this place!
What a nice place to stay! The quite comfy guest house is perfect for a couple. Clean, comfortable and well equipped. We were welcomed very nicely by Ursula, who showed us the place and gave a lot of tips on the area. The place had fresh flowers, some fresh apple juice from a neighbouring farmer and the underfloor heating was already turned on when we arrived.
The house and Orsbach are situated just a few minutes away from the Dutch border and Aachen city is just a 15 minute car drive. There are all kinds of hiking paths passing just outside the house or just a short drive away. Germany, Belgium and The Netherlands, it’s all very close and reachable. All the goodness of 3 countries packed into a small area, just awesome!
The beautiful surroundings, the closeness of Aachen city but especially the guest house makes this place worth a visit. If you want to relax, don’t hesitate and book this place! We will definitely come back.
Danke schön Ursula and Johannes :)
We stayed in this small and cosy house for four days and enjoyed our stay very much. The host was very kind and showed us around. The house is very peaceful and quiet and has very nice surroundings. The home made apple juice that was in our fridge when we arrived was a pleasant surprise!
We had a lovely time in Burg Orsbach. Our host Ursula Hucke was very helpful and friendly.
