I personally like renting an apartment during a holiday or weekend away. You have more space and freedom than in a hotel room and it is also generally cheaper. There is also a wide choice of apartments in Winterberg, from simple to very luxurious and from very cheap to pricey. So there is always something to suit everyone.
Location apartments Winterberg
For apartments in Winterberg you can choose apartments in the center of Winterberg or apartments that are quieter, just outside the center and more in the beautiful nature around Winterberg. The latter category is the most popular because the location is generally quieter and more beautiful.
Apartment Kappeberg Lodge in Winterberg, for example, is located near the slopes, mountain bike trail, hiking area and bob track.
Advantages of an apartment during the holidays
Personally, I prefer to rent an apartment or a holiday home during the holidays or a weekend away. You then have more:
space: bedroom/living room, kitchen and bathroom
freedom: you don't have to stick to the breakfast/lunch and dinner times
cheaper, especially with a family or group: you do not have to book extra hotel rooms

What to look out for when renting an apartment in Winterberg
Depending on what you are looking for, you can include the following points in your search for a suitable apartment.
location: in the center (between restaurants and nightlife) or just outside the center e.g. in the Kappeberg area: Erlebnisberg Kappe
parking: in busy periods (in winter during weekends, Christmas period and some weekends in May) it is sometimes difficult to park directly at the apartment. Then choose an apartment with your own/private parking space
outdoor space: if you want to enjoy the sun or sit outside, look for an apartment with a terrace, balcony or garden (with a favorable sun position)
public transport: if you come to Winterberg by (flix) bus, Winterberg bus or train (because that's fine), look for an apartment within walking distance of the station or close to one of the bus stops in Winterberg. The Poppenberg bus stop, for example, is close to the Kappeberg district where many apartments are located.
