Hotel Gasthof Alte Vogtei


In the "Alte Vogtei", the former proud official residence of the German Order of Knights, the heart of the Minnesinger town Wolframs-Eschenbach is beating.

As of late, the listed building gleams in new splendoour and fascinates its guests with lovingly and stylishly restored rooms. Contemporary elegant hotel rooms await the traveller behind walls steeped in history. The spa facility "Badstub'n" in the building’s basement invites guests to relax in its sauna and relaxation zone.

The restaurant spoils with its "World-Franconian cuisine", an extraordinary combination of regional products and dishes as well as a diversity of international influences.

For celebrations and conferences historic halls are available. Buses are very welcome.

Within only a few steps walk around the medieval town wall along the Franconian Literature Trail, follow the footsteps of the Parzival poet in the Wolfram-from-Eschenbach Museum and visit the Cathedral of Our Lady (Liebfrauenmünster) with the minnesinger's tomb.
