    Öschberghof in Donaueschingen is one of Germany’s top destinations for golfers, short breaks, conference and leisure guests. Not only have the rooms and meeting rooms, lobby and restaurant been modernized, but step by step the Wellness Centre has been reorganized and expanded by Cornelia Markus-Diedenhofen, whose office specializes in interior design for hotels. The designer has reshaped the Öschberghof with quality materials, soft natural tones and new lighting. In November 2008 the hotel inaugurated a further extension housing a third restaurant. The hotel has now not only the new restaurant with – depending on the seating – 100 to 150 seats, but also has a fireplace lounge, a private Spa in the basement, new modern fitness rooms and an expanded cafeteria space. All rooms of the new building have full length windows overlooking the terrace, garden and golf course.

    The designers used colour and lighting to create visual excitement for the guests. This includes the new buffet, which serves both breakfast and lunch as well as having cooking classes available. A walk-in wine cabinet makes the selection of wine an experience. The fireplace-lounge with low chairs made from high quality leather and a three meter wide open gas fireplace gives guests a cosy space in bad weather and makes for long evenings of conversation. The walk-in humidor in walnut-burl and black glass is an exquisite piece of jewellery now redundant in many hotels, although in Germany there is as yet no universal ban on smoking in hotels.
