“Well Worth the Detours”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 January 2014

Unable to find reasonably priced accommodations in Bamberg or Nurnburg I stumbled upon this out of the way gem seemingly in the middle of nowhere. However, closer inspection on a map reveals that Heiligenstadt sits inside the triangle between Bamber, Nurnburg and Bayreuth. In fact, it is also not too far from the Romantic Road and actually sits on the Burgstrasse, another interesting drive with old forts and castles seemingly around every curve.

The Hotel-Restaurant Heiligenstadter Hof offers ample free parking across the street in the municipal parking lot. The inn sits right next to a millstream and just below a towering parish church. The inn dates back to the 16th century, but underwent a massive restoration in the late Twentieth. We were luck enough to get rooms in the front of the hotel; in the oldest section. The rooms proudly display many of the original hand-painted timber beams and parts of the original walls.

We found our accommodations to be spacious, typically German clean, decorated with modern conveniences, and comfortably warm on some cold winter nights. The bathrooms were big and the hot water in the shower lasted throughout a ten minute shower. Beds had fluffy down comforters and firm mattresses. No room phones or clocks.

Breakfast was included and was quite impressive. Lots of local farm products including hand cut butter. We skipped lunch both days after gorging at Fruhstuck.

we enjoyed dinner at the hotel both nights that we stayed. The locals seem to love the place as well and a spirited card game broke out one night and some sort of town meeting appeared to be on tap on another. Meal prices were among the best in Germany. Too many of the German restaurants we had been to on our two week vacation seemed to be going away from the Schnitzel cuisine of the past, but I was quite pleased to find a couple of hard-to-find choices on the menu. The Jagerschnitzel on night one was excellent and the Putenschnitzel the next was equally appetizing. Little wonder the inn sports a Michelin decal on their front door entrance. Incidently, the local beers were equally wonderful.

We had a few problems at the front desk since the clerk didn't speak English and our German sucks, but we eventually got things straightened out. Speaking to one of the English speaking waitresses we learned that the Heiligenstadt only sees a handful of Americans every year.

Room Tip: Ask to stay in the older building.

i was part of a large wedding group and was made to feel very unwelcome by the owner-dont think she knows how to treat her guests. my bed in room 104 was uncomfortable, the corridors noisy, as the extension is made out of concrete. Her staff are great but she needs to go to hospitslity classes, or stick to 60+ germans who go to bed early.

Sadly, the owner of this lovely hotel has very formal ideas about how guests should behave and lets you know firmly if you do not meet her standard, which can make you feel a bit unwanted.

Its a shame because many of the staff are lovely, the food is good and the rooms very well priced and very comfy, clean and modern.

Comfortable rooms; well equipped with good beds and a sitting group. Lcd- tv and a good choice of tv channels. Very good value for money! Very friendly and service minded staff. Restaurant serves food typical for the area, but the quality is on the average side.

Wi-fi is available at a cost pr. hour of EUR 5, which is acceptable since the price of the room is very low. But the only choice is paying for one hour! Tickets for 7 or 24 hours to a reduced price are a must!
