Schwarzer Bock


At the time of the mysterious and unusual events in the life of the young Kaspar Hauser in Ansbach in 1833, this inn was already more than 300 years old.

A preserved original inn, dating back to the 15th century and located in the midst of the action between the residence, former Margravial Chancery and Court Church.

In one room once stayed Prince Regent Luitpold of Bavaria, another one served as officer's mess - each room tells its own story and breathes history in contemporary garb.
Wheather it is the Ansbach sausage, the famous "Schäuferla" or a delicious dinner menu, the hosts, who support the Slow Food Philosophy, serve regional specialities from their home areas Franconia and Palatinate.

Just a few steps away...
Visit the Margravial Residence and the former St. Gumbertus Church with the Margravial Crypt, pay a brief visit to the Magrave Museum with its excellent Kasper Hauser Exhibit, then the baroque Synagogue and the neo-classical St. Ludwig Church. In the summertime, a stroll through the Court Garden in full bloom is a must.
