The Waldhotel Winden (roughly translating to the Winden Forest Hotel) is a hotel in Winden operated by Regina Tiedemann.



In 1953, the land is the estate of the Doppler family, where Bernd Doppler, his wife Greta, and their son Helge live.[1]

In 1987, it is still in the hands of the Dopplers. In the fall of 1986 and again the following summer, Claudia Tiedemann visits Bernd here seeking more information about the 1986 incident at the nuclear plant.[2][3] In 1987, Bernd is strangled to death by the Unknown.[4]

In 2019, the manor has been converted to a hotel, with Regina as its proprietor. It opens on June 20.[5][6]


Regina stresses over health and hotel finances.

Following the disappearances of Erik Obendorf and then of Mikkel Nielsen, the hotel falls into a state of financial disrepair.[7]

The Stranger in the hotel, room #8

One day, Regina is surprised when a mysterious hooded stranger arrives and asks for a room.[8] After a few days, the stranger tells Regina he is leaving for a few days but will return, and asks her to deliver a package addressed to Jonas Kahnwald, which she does.[9]


The Stranger asks Regina to deliver a package.

A few days later Regina enters his room, number 8, to clean. She is shocked to discover its walls papered with notes, clippings, and photographs about the disappearances, time travel, and other topics.[2]
