WaldWunderWerk child care centre


At Nest’erl, warmth, security and togetherness take centre stage. The doors are open to everyone from 9 am to 8 pm. All generations are welcome here to enjoy life together – whether children, parents, grandparents or friends – for everyone from 0 to 100 years. You can drop in at any time without registering and take part in the wide range of activities. At Nest’erl, we cook, bake, plant, make, build, craft, sew, make music and decorate together to create unforgettable moments of togetherness. In the Nest’erl-Stubn, joint kitchen parties are organised and freshly prepared meals are eaten. The music room – equipped with instruments from all over the world – invites you to sing and play. Creative minds will find everything they need to create works of art in the workshop with fabrics, yarns and natural materials. In the in-house pottery, you can work with clay and create unique pieces.

Newborns are also cared for at Nest’erl in a needs-orientated and particularly loving way. Our trained babywearing counsellors can gently carry the little ones in a DIDYMOS sling or toddler carrier on request. A Wunderwiege (spring cradle) is available so that the little ones can sleep as light as a feather. The automated spring cradle gently rocks the baby to sleep. Our dedicated carers are on hand to look after all children and ensure they have a safe and fulfilling time – with or without their parents.

Supervised lunch or dinner


Here the wooden spoon becomes a magic wand! Mini-culinary experts and experienced kitchen wizards are cordially invited to join in! We cook together to our heart’s content and mood. Sometimes regional Bavarian, sometimes exotic and unusual, but always with love and in community. Discover the regional and seasonal ingredients that Mother Earth gives us. The kitchen fairies lead the mini cookery course, and everyone – big or small – is sure to learn a trick or two. The delicacies prepared together are then enjoyed together at the children’s table.

Registration in the Ferienplaner required for participation in lunch and/or dinner. Registration for lunch is possible until 11:30 am and for dinner until 5 pm.

Late riser service

Sufficient sleep is healthy! And if your child is an early riser, then he or she may already play with us in the childcare while you snuggle up in bed once again and do something for your health. If you wish, the nanny will pick up your child from the room and according to your instructions we will have breakfast together. The care of the little early risers takes place in the “Stübchen”.

Please indicate when booking on which days you would like to use this service – at the latest 24 hours in advance. Details of care will be arranged on site.

Mon-Sun bookable from 07:00, per child per hour 15€, each additional child of the same family € 7,50.

Evening care

You have booked a candlelight dinner, want to go to the cocktail evening in the “Crazy Horse Saloon” or make a visit to the casino in Bad Kötzting? Enjoy the atmospheric hours for two with the knowledge that a babysitter will take care of your child should it wake up.

The kids hotel

with carrying expertise

With our exclusive cooperation with DIDYMOS, the original baby sling since 1972, we offer you and your child the highest level of comfort. Baby carriers promote the healthy development of your baby’s hips, create a close bond with mum and dad and are incredibly practical in everyday life. With a baby carrier, parents have their hands free while their child is safe and secure with them.

DIDYMOS slings are made from high-quality, 100% organically grown cotton fabric that moulds perfectly to your baby. At ULRICHSHOF we offer you our own DIDYMOS slings and carrying aids. These can be borrowed for an unlimited period during your stay (against a deposit). They can be hired from our childcare centre “Nest’erl”. As a certified babywearing hotel, we have 8 trained babywearing counsellors who are on hand to help and advise you. On request, our smallest guests can be lovingly carried by our babywearing consultants – we call this “wrapped in love”. We look forward to offering you and your child an unforgettable babywearing experience!

Our mascots

Yolybsi & friends

When the ULRICHSHOF was founded in 1992, two dogs, the St. Bernards “Yolly” (pronounced Jolly) and “Ybsi” (pronounced Übsi), also lived at the ULRICHSHOF. When we were looking for a name for our new mascot, we created the name “Yolybsi” (pronounced Jolübsi) from the two unusual dog names without further ado.

Since Yolybsi loves our guest children more than anything, he meets with them every morning at 9 o’clock in the Schrazeltal for a good morning dance. This way everyone wakes up and can start the ULRICHSHOF adventure with lots of energy and fun! Over the years, Yolybsi has made many friends, such as Pirate Pitt, the kangaroo Skippy as well as the clown Happy. Together they bring a lot of joy to our guest children and are up for any kind of fun.
