Romantic Castle or Convivial Coziness

German Hospitality Has Tradition

DZT - The romantic Main River town Miltenberg is famous for the oldest princely inn in Germany, the Hotel "Riesen," first mentioned in 1158.

Still today, guests can feel the historic flair of the house, even though medieval ambiance has made way for modern comfort.

No one has to sleep the way the "Princess and the Pea" did in Andersen’s fairy tale. From the North- and Baltic Sea coasts to the Alps, there are accommodations in which it is worthwhile to stay because they are duty bound to keep tradition.

Dream in princely ambiance or enjoy the highest luxury behind a protected historic facade – Germany’s hospitality is unique in its variety and leaves no wish unfulfilled in regard to facilities and style.


Wellness and fitness for guests

Friendly service, facilities for one’s well-being and modern, international comfort are understood – whether in a first-class hotel, a stylishly-renovated country house or a convivial cozy guest house.

Leisure facilities such as swimming pools, saunas, solaria and fitness areas have long catered to the demands of the visitor. Often there are tennis courts and many houses have bicycles for the use of their guests. Halls can be rented for conferences, receptions and family celebrations.

No guest need go to bed hungry or thirsty: exquisite restaurants pamper them with regional and international specialties from kitchen and cellar.


Pure luxury or Spartan simplicity

Castle- and fortress hotels are a feast for the eyes not only from the outside. The interior decoration is impressive with stylishly-furnished rooms and elegant suites. The successful coordination of historic building materials and modern furnishing create a special atmosphere.

Even the drive to one of these imposing hotels is fascinating. Often they lie within well-cared-for parks in which hotel guests can stroll as their hearts desire, or they are enthroned high above idyllic river

landscapes. Here the guests’ dream of exclusive living comes true.

Naturally, adventurers can also find a peaceful place – in a hay hotel, for example. These rustic establishments are enjoying increasing popularity in country areas. Even the cloisters are opening their doors to those who like it Spartan. A meditation vacation is particularly in demand by those who suffer job stress.

Special Hotels

Small but fine:
The Künstlerhaus in Regensburg

A special hotel stands near the Regensburg Cathedral: the "Künstlerhaus." Five individually-decorated rooms are in the narrowest house in the Old Town – one room on each floor.

A night with breakfast costs between 150 and 180 marks (76.69 and 92.03 Euro).
