The Lilienhof.

Horse and leisure farm near Eltz Castle

The Lilienhof was built in 1860 and has a long tradition with many name changes. For over 50 years it has been home to horses and many riding enthusiasts have learned to ride here. In the last 15 years the farm has been extensively rebuilt and modernized.

Today, the Lilienhof houses a total of seven units – thereof four vacation apartments: Black Beauty, Kleiner Onkel, Spirit and Jolly Jumper ,all of which are located around the riding arena.

Three more residential units, all off the beautifully landscaped courtyard, are available as a permanently rented apartment and as an office and residential unit for the current operators.

The courtyard

The newly designed courtyard was created with great attention to detail, a large fountain and colorful flowering trees and flowers to a small oasis. Seats invite you here to linger and enjoy.

The saloon

A staircase in the courtyard leads to the “Saloon”, a large recreation room with lots of attractive playground equipment. All games are free to use. Here have been spent many celebrations and many cozy evenings with fun and games.

Riding hall and riding arena

The farm has a 20 x 40 indoor arena with a sand/wood chip mixture and a 30 x 60 outdoor arena with Stremer riding sand. The floors have been newly laid out and leave nothing to be desired for dressage or show jumping riders.

Around the indoor arena there are paddocks and in planning is an irrigation via a cistern as well as further paved paddocks. 

The horse stalls

There are eleven horse stalls in the courtyard. In an outdoor stable wing there are nine and at the riding arena there are three more paddock boxes available as guest boxes for your horses.

Susanne’s gelding herd stands at night in the inner courtyard in an open stable wing with a wonderful amount of space.

The fire and barbecue area

Next to the main house is an open fireplace for cozy campfire evenings. A gas grill is also available here.

The willows

Behind and next to the farm, the horses can romp on about 5 hectares of pastures during the day. They have many shaded areas and even access to a small stream.
