It pleases us if you are pleased – nevertheless, we would like to encourage you to explore the lovely surroundings, too!
The hotel 'Landgasthof Schwanen' in Kork near Kehl has been around for over 250 years; it was established in 1750. In Kork, history is evident on every corner. Having been the former official residence of the county of Hanauerland, there are numerous half-timbered houses and other historic buildings along the 'Korker Bühl' to testify of this past.
Kork is inviting for a stay, but it's also an ideal base for outings into the Black Forest and the Alsace region. From here, you can take a trip to the wine route in Baden - Alsace, the Vosges mountains or the famous Black Forest scenic route.
For nature and sport lovers, there are countless forests, public swimming pools and bathing lakes in a close vicinity. You will also find well sign-posted cycling-trails for extensive bicycle tours, winding meandering branches of the Rhine river for paddling and the Taubergießen nature reserve for relaxed barge trips and guided hiking tours. If you are a motorcyclist then we have suggestions for a lot of tours though the Alsace region, and even the Black Forest scenic route is within reach. There are also opportunities for horse-back riding as well as for playing golf or tennis.
You want to indulge in good entertainment? Spend an exciting day with the whole family at the Europa-Park in Rust or at the World of Living exhibition by the WeberHaus company in Rheinau-Linx. You can also visit the open air museum 'Vogtsbauernhof' or the glass blowing workshop 'Dorotheenhütte' in the Kinzigtal valley.
There are also a number of interesting towns waiting for you to see: the European capitol of Strasbourg (6 km); Kehl with its riverside garden on both riverbanks (5 km); the meanders of the Rhine river and the Weißtannenturm offering a splendid view of the region; the county town of Offenburg with its pretty pedestrian zone (12 km); the stylish Baden-Baden with its stage and casino (30 km); the city of Karlsruhe (60 km); the university town of Freiburg (60 km); and Gengenbach near Offenburg, arguably the most beautiful historic town in the region.
We wish you a very pleasant stay with us!
With warm regards, the Lubberger family and the team of 'Landgasthof Schwanen'
