Hotel Zum Erbprinzen***


This 18th century building is one of the oldest hotels in Schwetzingen. Ideally situated at a beautiful and privileged location on the Schlossplatz (Palace Square), directly opposite the Palace and the Palace Gardens, it is the go-to hotel for a memorable and pleasant stay in a town famous for its asparagus and popular festivals.

Friedrich Schiller, one of the most famous guests of the hotel, stopped here on January 12, 1782 en route to Mannheim for the premiere of his drama "The Robbers".

Almost all of the 25 comfortably appointed rooms offer views of the Palace and are furnished in a modern Biedermeier style, a fitting complement to the historical atmosphere. In strict contrast, the restaurant has been completely renovated and decorated with vintage motor sports paraphernalia by Marcus Walz, the world-wide known bike builder and motorcycle designer. It is this excellent combination of history and modern gastronomy that visitors appreciate. In the WalzWerk Cafe, hotel guests are treated to a hearty breakfast.

Just a few steps away...
Enjoy the mediterranean flair of the Palace Square, marvel at the Palace, or stroll through the magnificent Palace Gardens.
