Welcome to Pias Bahnhof

Are you looking for something special? Then you have finally arrived! Pias Bahnhof offers exclusive relaxation in a place full of charming history and exciting architecture. Opened in 1903, Dhronecken station was part of the Hunsrück Transverse Railway, and developed into a piece of 20th century German history until its closure in 1976.

Family-owned again for years, we lovingly take care of the listed site, including railway buildings, which can hardly be found in their form in Germany today. Carefully restored and stylishly furnished, we would like to offer our guests exclusive relaxation in the midst of unspoilt nature and thus give you back a great deal of well-being and personal strength.

As “Pias Bahnhof” we stand for exclusivity, sustainability and a symbiosis of nature and architecture. Holidays far away from catalogues and package deals. If you love nature and appreciate places with a special history, then you will feel right at home with us.

 

Yours sincerely, Pia Weber

Dhronecken - nature at its best!

Dhronecken is located in the Saar-Hunsrück holiday region, near the Erbeskopf between Trier and Saarbrücken. It is demonstrably located in the oldest ancestral and core area of the Celts, which has existed since about 500 BC.

In the many-volume standard work on the study of Germanic antiquity, it is stated that research identifies Hagen’s origin with Troneck Castle in the Hunsrück. Accordingly, the historically rich Dhronecken could have been the home of the Nibelungen hero Hagen von Tronje.

The small community of Dhronecken not only has a long history, but also a castle known far and wide with its own festival barn. In addition to festivities of all kinds, civil marriage ceremonies have also been possible within the walls of the historic castle for some time.

In addition to the castle, there are several baroque buildings from around 1700 and a mill from 1750 that is still in use today.

Whether you take a walk through the numerous forests, meadows and valleys, go on the 350-km-long, well-marked hiking trails or go cycling, whether you visit the Erbeskopf in winter for skiing or in summer to use the toboggan run, whether you plan a horse-riding holiday or simply want a wellness holiday – the Hochwald leaves nothing to be desired for active recreation.

From Pia’s train station you can reach all the well-known excursion destinations of the region in no time, be it the Roman city of Trier, the wine regions of Saar and Moselle, the Gemstone Road to Idar-Oberstein or the European capital of Luxembourg.

How does a family get to a railway station?

In addition to its beautiful location in the Hochwald forest and its long history, Dhronecken has an old water tower and a listed railway station. Opened at the beginning of the 20th century, the station consists of three buildings: the stationmaster’s house, a utility building and the actual railway building. The total area of the station grounds is 20,000 square metres.

My personal family history began at Dhronecken station in the 1930s: my grandfather Johann Paulus came with his family from neighbouring Malborn and started working here as a railway guard. Since that time, there has been a close connection between my family and the station area, which has always been the scene of numerous family reunions. My childhood memories go way back to those days.

In the 1970s, the railway auctioned off many such small stations, including Dhronecken station. For my grandparents, this meant having to leave their house. My father then bought the entire property, including the grounds, and so this family meeting place remained with us, even after it was closed down in 1976.

In 2007, my husband and I took over the entire property and began to renovate it. While my father continues to live in the railway caretaker’s house privately, we have lovingly furnished a holiday flat in the former utility building, the “Lampenhäuschen” (lamp house). In addition, we offer the “Falkennest” (Falcon’s Nest), a stylishly furnished holiday flat directly under the listed roof beams.
