Inside the old production rooms you can still feel industrial history. In former times high ceilings and a lot of light have been necessary for the production process - nowadays they give you a unique room experience. The open kitchen is very well furnished and equiped. In the living area you will find a large sofa as well as an old piano. The double bed is hidden behind a wall. Within the large bathroom in black and white you will find a light installation which stresses the modern interior. You will find bedclothes and towels inside the flat. Like in 'Steinhaus' we ask our guests not to smoke within the house.

About the property

Obenruedener Kotten

The old grindery 'Obenrüdener Kotten' is located within the protected landscape of the Wupper River in the middle between Cologne and Dusseldorf. Situated right at the river banks and aside the small village Rüden the restored and listed building bears witness to the long tradition of knife industry in Solingen. 300 years ago knifes and scissors have been grinded, polished and assembled in this building. Today the place invites you to relax or be sportive. The Wupper turned in to an attractive canoeing and fishing river. The building - like the small village - is named after the dog of duke Robert von Berg, who saved his life after a hunting accident in 1424 by directing the shoot towards his harried master. From his memorial the faithful dog watches over the valley until today.

Solingen and surrounding: Solingen is twin town with the 'Regionale 2006', a regional development project supporting the commercial, cultural and scenic potencies of the triangle Solingen, Remscheid and Wuppertal. Numerous projects have been realized already and among the famous destinations quite some insider tips wait to be discovered. Band weaving mills, zoo and 'Schwebebahn' in Wuppertal, the bridge park 'Müngstener Brücke' and the historical old town centers of Remscheid-Lennep and Solingen-Gräfrath are attractive places of excursions, but also the large cities along the Rhine river - Cologne, Bonn and Düsseldorf - are not more that 30 km away. Here you will find opera, theatre, concerts, museums and galleries with world class niveau. We are pleased to assist you getting your tickets.

Fairs and Exhibitions: If you wish to visit one of the fairs in Cologne, Düsseldorf or other cities within Nordrhein-Westfalen Obenrüdener Kotten is an ideal place to stay and relax after a tiring day.

Luxury and unique accommodation amongst nature trails

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed at this beautiful loft apartment at the beginning of October. It was very spacious and will appointed. We were extremely pleased with amenities and location. It is literally 20 feet away from the Wupper River and the many the nature trails that lie on the other side of the river bank. It is secluded, yet a mere 5 min drive to most amenities, and a 10-15min drive into surrounding towns/cities. It was truly an ideal location to relax and we had a fantastic vacation. We will certainly be back, if in the area. We would also like to commend Lisa for her prompt responses and being a great host.

Sehr schönes Loft

  • 5 of 5

Wir wollten über Karneval ein paar Tage ausspannen. Hier direkt an der Wupper haben wir genau dass gefunden. Sehr schöne ruhige Lage, in einem sehr liebevoll umgebauten Industriegebäude, einer alten Schleiferei. Hier im Kotten sowie der Region, dreht sich alles um " scharfe Klingen ". Sehr gerne, werden wir genau hier, weitere Urlaubstage der Entspannung suchen.

Stylisches Loft mit Wohlfühlcharakter

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben uns sehr willkommen gefühlt. Broschüren, Tipps, Musik, DVDs, Bücher und eine Küchenausstattung, die nichts vermissen lässt. Es wird einiges dafür getan, dass man sich wohl fühlt. Das Haus und die Loftwohnung sprechen für sich. Einfach toll!

Herzlichen Dank für ein gelungenen Kurzurlaub!

Ein Traum...

  • 5 of 5

...wird wahr, wenn man in der Loftwohnung im Schleifkotten ankommt. Echte Loftatmosphäre in wunderschöner Umgebung direkt am Fluss. Was will man mehr. Die Abwicklung war unkompliziert und die Wohnung war sehr sauber. Wer eine Ferienunterkunft mit wirklich besonderer Wohnatmosphäre sucht ist hier genau richtig. Wanderwege beginnen direkt am Haus - nur einmal die Brücke über die Wupper direkt hinter dem Haus überqueren und schon kann die Wanderung losgehen. Leider waren wir nur zwei Nächte da, aber wir werden auf jeden Fall nochmal wiederkommen. Absoulut zu empfehlen!

Just step out the door to find your way into the beautiful landscape along the Wupper. High above the river on shady forest tracks or easygoing along its side you will find an amiable landscape full of character. The Obenrüdener Kotten is situated at the interface of small and larger hiking trails, like for example the 'Klingenpfad' all around Solingen, the 'Castel Trail', the 'Landrat Lucas Trail' or the trail 'From Hut to Hut'. Your might like to see the famous 'Wupper Castle', which is only 12 km away, or the 'Müngstener Brücke' (20 km), which is still the highest railway bridge in Germany. There are more opportunities to discover the Bergisches Land, though: Riding a bicycle, on an expedition through the museums of Solingen, enjoying our delicate specialties like 'Bergische Kaffeetafel' or a solid bacon pancake in one of the village inns - just try it!

Other Activities: canoeing
