Weende is the most northern and largest area of Göttingen. Not only is the university hospital situated here but also various other university and Max Planck institutes, including several which are currently being extended at great expense. The German Primate Centre (DPZ), Leibnitz Institute for Primate Research, was established here as an independent research centre offering services to German scientific work. The Protestant hospital Göttingen-Weende is also gaining importance beyond the local area. Companies which are known internationally are also based here.

University buildings and other developments changed the character of Weende in the past. However, the historic centre of the area around the renovated “Thiehaus” has for the most part been preserved. We recommend visiting our monastery park (Klosterpark) with its medieval wall, the remains of the monastery possessions, and its baroque offices

We must also mention that Weende has the town’s biggest open-air swimming-pool, whose existence has recently been under threat but which is likely to remain open thanks to the committed efforts of concerned local citizens.



The cost of both the guesthouse (address: Am Weendespring 12 a) and the apartment (address: Am Weendespring 12) is the same:

at least 2 – 3 days            € 95.00 per day

as from 4 days                 € 75.00 per day

The cost of long-term tenancy is by individual arrangement.

All the following costs are included in the booking fee: cleaning, bed linen, towels, telephone (landline within Germany), internet, and, of course, energy and water.

Any deposits already paid will be returned. Charges are as follows: a fee of 40% for cancellation between 21 and 8 days before arrival; a fee of 80% for cancellation between the  7th  and last days  before arrival; all costs must be paid if arrival is delayed or departure brought forward. Cancellation must be in writing.

Holiday guesthouse and apartment at Am Weendespring, Weende, Göttingen, Germany.

Vacation home, Temporary residence

Our detached guesthouse comprises living-room, kitchen, and bathroom on the ground floor and two bedrooms on the first floor. Our apartment consists of the entire first floor of the house next door. Both guesthouse and apartment have a living space of 65 square metres.

Weende is a part of Göttingen, which is quiet but very conveniently situated with regard to access to various institutes (the university, the university hospital, the primate centre, the Max Planck Institute) as well as to the industrial zone in Göttingen Nord, the motorway, and the local bus service. A wooded area and a swimming-pool can be seen from the accommodation.


Everything which a person needs:

Both guesthouse and apartment are fully furnished. The guesthouse has a patio, which borders on a green area. The apartment has a spacious balcony, which offers a very pleasant view of the surrounding countryside and over the roofs of other buildings. Parking space, telephone, internet connection, and satellite-TV are all included.

The guesthouse has two large beds (each 100cm x 200cm). If needed, two other beds (each 200cm x 80cm) can be used in the ante-room, which can otherwise be used as a small study or generous dressing-room.

Our apartment has two bedrooms, both of which have a comfortable single bed and one also has a double bed.

Both guesthouse and apartment are therefore designed for between two and four people. However, in exceptional cases, when the properties have been used for short stays, more visitors have been satisfactorily accommodated. Please contact us should this situation arise.

To adapt an old saying – pictures speak louder than words:  in the column on the left, you will find our album “Guest house” and “apartment” with additional texts on the right under “Info”,  “From A to Z” in the column.
