Hotel Zum Erbprinzen***


This building, built in the 18th century, is one of the oldest hotels in Schwetzingen. The dreamlike and privileged location at the palace square and the palace garden make it to be a first-choice hotel for an unforgettable stay in the city of asparagus and festival.

One of the most prominent guests is Friedrich Schiller, who stayed overnight here on the 12th of January 1782, as he was on his way through to Mannheim for the premiere of the "Robbers".

The 25 comfort rooms mainly offer palace view and suit the historic ambience with their modern Biedermeier furnishings. The counterpart to that, the restaurant was completely redesigned and decorated with selected motor sport implements by the world-famous bike builder and motorcycle designer Marcus Walz. This successful mix of history and modern gastronomy fill the guests with enthusiasm. In the WalzWerk Café the hotel guests also have their lavish breakfast.

Just a few steps away...
enjoy the mediterranean flair of the palace square, marvel at the palace, or stroll through the lovely palace park.
