The historical Kaster and the rural Rhein-Erft district offer a variety of leisure facilities with a varying emphasis.
Whether it is the arts, culture or sport – we can offer it all.
The Ricarda-Markt, a medieval art and crafts fair in the summer, the Nikolausmarkt Christmas market in December, in the course of which you can sample or buy home-made specialties in mediaeval dwelling houses, the famous Kaster Advent calendar, the Bedburger Musikmeile musical festival and many other folklore events can all be experienced at first hand.
The erstwhile lignite mining area is a stone’s throw from us. It as restored and today serves as a rural leisure area with young forests and the Kaster lake. An ideal situation for jogging and walking.
Guided tours through the old city centre of Kaster can be pre-arranged all year round. There are also several opportunities during the year to experience an interesting guided tour of local opencast mining facilities.
Through meadow and fields
All three large bicycle paths of the Rhine Bay pass our house. That is why the Danielshof offers itself as a base for all cycling activities along the Erft. And so we want to make your stay in Alt-Kaster as pleasant as possible. Ask us for special offers for cyclists and groups.
Rentalbikes are available at the hotel.
Maps with routes available as well.
We are a recognized Bed & Bike operation of the ADFC.
A game of golf or tennis?
The region between Rhine and Erft is a golfing country. Here in the past years seven excellent golf and golfing facilities have been created, which can be reached within thirty minutes. The Danielshof is therefore also a good starting point for the golfer.
Within walking distance of the hotel, you will find Tenniscourts (indoor and outdoor).
Would you like to do something for your “culture” during your stay? Then visit the cathedral in Cologne or in Aachen. The castles Falkenlust and Augustusburg in Brühl also invite you to visit and stroll through the castle grounds. Visit the RWE-Informationszentrum Schloß Paffendorf, where you will get an insight into the opencast mining. There are many reasons to choose the Danielshof as the starting point for your “Kultour”.
Go-Karts, kayaking or skiing
Do you enjoy sports? Then we recommend a visit to the Michael-Schumacher-Kart track in Kerpen.
Or if you love the “cool wet”, we strongly advise you to have fun
“Kajaken auf der Erft”.
Even in summer do not skip skiing? No problem, the Jever-Skihalle in Neuss is only 20 minutes away from us.
