Get aroundEdit


  • The protestant church is more than 1000 years old, but cannot be visited. Some of the timbered houses in the old part of the town are pretty nice as well.


  • Some people who visit Erzhausen come for the Sauna [2]. Choose between five saunas between 60 and 100°C, massage, aroma studio, solarium and many other options. 2 h for 14 €, whole day 19 € per adult.



  • Erzhausen has a few nice Restaurants. The "Zur Linde" right in the center of the town has excellent traditional German food at reasonable prices. But service is not very fast though. A very good Greek restaurant is right at the train station.



  • Landhotel Margaretenhof [3] is an excellent hotel and also a very good option for business travellers to Darmstadt and Frankfurt.
  • Less expensive but also with much less comfort: hotel + restaurant "Zum alten Euler", Friedrich-Ebertstraße 34, 64390 Erzhausen, Ph.: 06150-7104.
