About Peter Marx

Hello, my name is Peter Marx and I am pleased to welcome you in our apartment in Kettwig. We have for years already discovered the advantages of the holiday house holiday and also collected impressions, which is important, so that we feel comfortable in an apartment.

Peter Marx purchased this apartment in 2011

Why Peter Marx chose Kettwig vor der Brücke

The apartment is located on the ground floor of our 19th century house - so we are always easy to reach you when you need something.

What makes this apartment unique

A house with history is always a personality. In the rooms we have renovated for you, long ago, for example, A quaint cigar shop. And there was also a doctor's office. We have liberated with love the oldest layers, the original wooden floor of 1864 e.g. and the truss and find it very cozy!

Warm welcome

  • 5 of 5

Our host Peter was very welcoming and we got a nice and fresh apartment.

A plus for us was that Peter speaks both Swedish and Norwegian :)

The immediate area was very nice and there is also plenty to see if you want to go a little further.

Thank you for being so accommodating!

Super Bude

  • 5 of 5

Nicht nur, dass die Wohnung gemütlich und stilvoll renoviert und eingerichtet ist, für 4 Leute reichlich Platz bietet, auch übergroße Fahrräder einen trockenen Platz im Schuppen angeboten bekommen, die Vermieter für einen netten Plausch zu haben sind und die empfohlende Eisdiele nach wenigen Minnuten Fußweg voll und ganz überzeugen kann.

Nein, bei berechtigter Beschwerde über das Wetter während der Anreise per Rad gibt's am nächsten Tag auch noch Sonnenschein und leichten Rückenwind (Angabe der Reiserichtung nicht vergessen!) frei Wohnung.

Kettwig's picturesque Old Town timber located in a very scenic surroundings on the Ruhr. The place has everything for a successful holiday: cafes, restaurants and nice shops, river and lake to stroll and boating, beautiful bike and hiking trails through the Ruhr Valley and the Bergisch countryside and sports from swimming pool of riding, tennis or Swingolf to the golf course at the Castle Oefte.

Leisure tips, hiking and cycling maps you like to get from us. Kettwig is of course also an ideal starting point for exploring the whole Ruhr area. 5 minute walk there are the S-Bahn, which just goes to food as to Dusseldorf and Cologne. Mülheim-Saarn or Essen-Werden are wonderful short goals by bike.

The apartment is located in Kettwig before the bridge at the gateway to the Bergische Land. A popular stop on the Ruhr Valley Cycle Route from Sauerland to Duisburg.

Also as time and Messewohnung ideal: the trade fair Dusseldorf and Essen exhibition are only 15-20 minutes by car. And those who work temporarily in Essen, Mülheim or Ratingen, can live in Kettwig in the countryside.
