Is far from Gelsenkirchen (8km) but unfortunately in this city there is nothing to see. The hotel is very close to Veltins Arena (100 meters) and is located in a park where you can have a good run if you have time.
The hotel has got a restaurant of good level ( olive restaurant) but just 2km from the hotel there is a special place to eat that I absolutely suggest, the SchlossBerg.
About the hotel there is a fitness centre very small with a spa.
The room is good with an the bed is comfortable.
