My favourite Hotels in Germany
France - Holland - Spain - Travel in Europe

Here follows a list of Hotels I stayed in while traveling through Germany during the past 6 years. I selected them either as being recommended by the Lonely Planet Guide or having a high rating on


Altenahr - Hotel zum Schwarzen Kreuz
This 1,000 years old historic hotel is excellent value and great to stay. Located right on the Ahr river and at the beginning of the Rote Wein Strasse and in the centre of a wide range of nature walks.

Baden Baden - Hotel am Markt
Great budget hotel in the very centre of this stylish and very elegant city and only 200 meters from the main spa baths.
Have a glass of wine and lunch at Wallstreet im Hamilton's terrace right on the tiny Oos river. Trying some delicious pastry (perhaps with a glass of bubbly) from Peter's am Leo on Leopoldplatz is also a must !

Hotel am Markt, Baden Baden

Baden Baden - Hotel Bischoff
Gernbacher Str.10-12
Tel. : +49 7221 3060
Also a good choice hotel in the centre and just 100 meters from the main spa baths.

Hotel Bischoff, Baden Baden


Bernkastel-Kues - Sankt Maximillian
On the Mosel river. The hotel has its own winery and wine cellar. Free wine tasting every Friday evening, great place to stay.
It also has a great collection of antique Ofentafeln.

Sankt Maximillian, Kues


Boppard - Rhein Hotel Rebstock
Right on the river's edge of the "Romantic Rhine, opposite the ferry. Budget prices, great art deco dining room.
The nearby treacherous rock of the Lorelei no longer exists these days (removed to facilitate shipping), so have a drink or meal in town instead right at the river's edge and watch the ships go by.

Hotel Rebstock, Boppard

Boppard - Hotel Baudobriga
Right on the river's edge of the "Romantic Rhine.   Blog entry
Quality accomodation at a moderate price. Friendly staff. Free Wifi. Flatscreen TV.
Quality wines from their own winery.

Hotel Baudobriga, Boppard

Romantische Strasse

Füssen - Gasthof zum Hechten
If you must see that King Ludwig II (quite ugly) castle, then stay at this lovely hotel in Füssen, the starting point of the "Romantische Strasse".
The hotel's Medieval breakfast room is quite spectacular, and the Füssen indoor markets are a sheer delight for both eye and palate.

Gasthof zum Hechten

Nördlingen - Keiserhof Hotel Sonne
As it was good enough for 4 German Emperors, 3 Kings and even Goethe, then it certainly should be good enough for you. A historic place to overnight, in the most authentic and least touristic Medieval town along the Romantische Strasse.
When there, don't forget to pay a visit to the eccentric Cafe Radlos.

Keiserhof Hotel Sonne, Nördlingen


Sankt Peter - Steingrubenhof
Not a hotel, but three self contained holiday apartments attached to a diary farm in the Black Forest.
A great place to have as base for nature walks. Just 50 meters from the Waldcafe and 1 km from the St. Peters village centre.

Steingrubenhof, Sankt Peter
