Country Partner Bernsteinsee Hotel & Ferien

Simply good hosts!

Sassenburg is located in Lower Saxony, near Wolfsburg. The hotel owes its existence to the Bernsteinsee, and the Elbe side canal, which is located in the immediate vicinity.

Water sports enthusiasts get their money’s worth here. Due to its spaciousness and its water quality the Bernsteinsee is treated as a secret tip under the bathing lakes in Lower Saxony. But not only water lovers get their money’s worth here – the recreational facility at the Bernsteinsee offers archery, bubblesoccer, go-carting and pony rides.

Those who want to explore the surrounding area simply grab a rental bike and explore the Südheute, cycle along the Elbe-Seitenkanal or experience the heath blossoms in the Heiliger Hain nature reserve.


Take a vacation and take a day off – work and feel free – you won’t miss anything! In 2020 our house was extended by a hotel wing and also our vacation house park also by four beach bungalows. It is not only possible to work and/or vacation alone, but also in a family or a group.
Just try it out!

We are looking forward to welcoming you!
