It all began with a passion:
My enthusiasm for mountaineering and all outdoor activities arose from climbing and the German Alpine Club DAV Sonneberg section. After all, I wanted to make my hobby and my love of nature my profession in order to inspire others for our region.
I started to offer adventure programs for groups in the Thuringian Forest with my business partner at that time. In 2001, we opened the Steinach high ropes course, the first of its kind in the new German states.
The large number of groups and the lack of adequate accommodation made it necessary for me in 2003 to bring my own house to life.
That's how our company name came into being:
OUTDOOR = the various actions and programs that we offer, and
INN = the English word for hostel / guesthouse
The Sporthotel Steinach was added at the end of 2009. Our outdoor activities now range from conference bikes and soapboxes in summer to snowshoe tours and snowbiking in winter.
