Outstanding ... You must stay here!!!

Until a few years ago, these rooms were part of the now closed adjacent Gasthaus Restaurant. I lived next door to the Gasthaus for 8 years but stayed in the rooms during my annual vacation return. They were nice then but even better now.

We stayed this time for about 10 days and truly enjoyed ourselves. The new owner is friendly and attentive, providing whatever we needed including the code to the free wifi which was a nice addition! But what we really loved was the new community kitchen and dining room with TV that he built. We'd buy our groceries at the Wasgau in Waldfishbach-Burgalben, store them in the kitchen fridge and enjoy relaxing breakfasts and dinners in the dining room, catching up on emails, planning the next day's events and watching the Eurovision semi-finals (bonus!) on TV at night.

This little "Hof" (so small it doesn't even qualify as a "town") which sits at an elevation of 500 meters, is surrounded by the Pfaelzerwald (Pfalz Forest) with tons of walking and biking trails right outside the door with castle ruins near by. In my time living there I saw lots of deer, several of the elusive boar along with many, many other critters. Now that the Gasthaus is closed, Roederhof is quiet and pretty much traffic free as there are only about 20 homes in the area. Hop on a bike, pedal past the old Gasthaus into the woods and pedal for a mile until you see the trail split. Hang a left up the small hill and you'll find yourself riding on an asphalt road through an old US Army munitions depot with the old bunkers still in existence (used now by farmers to store hay & various other things). Keep pedaling through the depot, staying on the main route and before you know it you'll find yourself in Clausen. If you bought a cycling map of the area, be adventurous and take some of the multitude of paths and soak up the absolutely gorgeous scenery ... you won't regret it!

The hiking/biking trails are great but only do so much for you if you don't have a superb place to stay during your visit. Roederhof is the place for you! Outstanding atmosphere and personable/friendly service in English. There is absolutely no doubt that we will stay there again ... and again ... and again!

Tip: Get your groceries in Waldfischbach and do NOT miss the Dolomiti Eiskafe, an Italian ice cream shop on Hauptstrasse, the main street in the center of town just past the Wasgau grocery store. The owners serve a mean Spaghetti Eis sundae ... give it a try!

Golf: 12 kilometers away is the beautifully situated golf club 'Palatinate Forest' in Forest Fischbach Castle albums.

For beginners with no 'handicap' and vacationers who want to try playing golf just once, also is a 6 - hole short course available. It says 'Pay and Play' for everyone.

Highly recommended is also about 20 kilometers away, golf course 'Hitscherhof', a scenic and sporting fantastic 18 - hole golf course of the traditional 'First Golf Clubs Westpfalz Schwarzbach'. The club only has a private golf shop also has an excellent golf restaurant. In addition to sports makes the unusual location of this very beautiful, 18-hole golf course on the edge of the Sickinger Höhe each round to a special experience. Stunning views of the natural beauty, challenging fairways on two levels with a varied design of the obstacles and beautiful, fast greens round out the sporting challenge to golfers of all levels from harmonious. A must for ambitious and nature-loving golfers!

Ski: Around glues, there are many opportunities to explore the Palatinate Forest on cross-country skis in winter. There are groomed trails for beginners at times, experienced runners offers Moreover, where a huge trails of all difficulty levels.

Furthermore, there is enough snow on the possibility of tobogganing and sledding.

In Zweibrücken is a very nice skating rink.

Trivia: Until a few years ago you could here the way in the summer months regular 'summer skiers' (also 'Rollski' or' Skiroller' driver called) watching. It was an endurance sport that had been developed for summer training for cross-country skiers. The athletes had probably learned to appreciate the beauty of our wonderful roads for this rare sport. Has the beauty of the streets since then nothing has changed, apparently already ... I thought you leave this tradition so to revive the popularity of the summer skiing but again? :-)
