EXPERIENCE HISTORY – MORE THAN 700 YEARS OF HAUS DELECKE
Hospitality at a picturesque lake. Haus Delecke offers a harmonious interaction of classicism and modernism in its hotel with currently 39 rooms.
The 14 renovated Classic rooms in the "Dependence" side building with their new bathrooms, 1.40 m wide box spring beds and 40-inch Smart TVs offer the best price-performance ratio for business travellers and conference guests. The 25 hotel rooms in the historical main building differ in their layouts. Many of them afford a beautiful view of Lake Möhnesee and the park landscape around it.
The wedding suite with its matching ambience and magnificent view is the perfect highlight for your most beautiful day.
The newly furnished Deluxe rooms stand out with their high-quality equipment of contemporary materials. Two of them were deliberately kept in a rustic style with lightly stained wood to contrast with the strictly modern offerings. The Comfort rooms are also furnished to match the hotel and its usual standard.
A rich breakfast buffet with many regional products waits for you in the "Veranda" room or in one of the restaurants in the morning. You may opt to enjoy your breakfast on the terrace in good weather. A winding path leads past ancient beeches, oaks and spruces directly to the lake shore and our own jetty from there. If you wish, you can begin your day with a walk and/or a refreshing swim in the lake.
BETWEEN HISTORY AND MODERNITY
Haus Delecke has gone through many a change in the course of centuries. Built as a manor house in 1270, it was owned by the Kettler family for a long time. The Möhne river formed a pond underneath this castle. The servant's houses around the main building formed the "Kettlers Teich" settlement in this beautiful location. The district still bears that name today. The Kettler family, also the bailiffs in Hovestadt and Haus Asse, inherited the property after the Schlingwurm family from Geseke the Hauxladen family, also called Bock.
Entrenchments were built between Kettlers Teich and Westrich to protect against raids during the Soest feud, when the Archbishop of Cologne and the Duke of Kleve fought for supremacy in Westphalia between 1444 and 1449. During the time of the estates of the realm, the castle belonged to those qualified to the choose and be chosen for chivalrous battle.
Casper Graf von Spiegel zum Dissenberg bought the property in 1823. After it was sold on to the Cosigk family in 1902, it passed through the hands of the Moenickes family and eventually ended up with the Ruhrtalsperrenverein association in 1924.
The association converted the building into a hotel and restaurant. Upon its opening on 31 March 1926, it was run by tenant Loeffahrt. The hotel was operated by a string of tenants until 1982. After a vacancy period of several years, it was renovated and reopened in 1987 under the management of Hotel Haus Delecke Hotel- und Gaststättenbetriebs GmbH, a company belonging to Kettler Group. Owner Dr. Karin Kettler died in February 2017. Since then, Haus Delecke has been in run by the Heinz-Kettler-Stiftung. A new era is just ahead for the hotel after comprehensive modernisation and structural expansion into a conference and spa hotel.
