“A culinary highlight of our German trip”
Reviewed 17 December 2013

We stayed two nights at Zur Goldenen Sonne in October 2013 as part of our three-week tour of Germany. We enjoyed the hotel very much even though construction was going on in the interior courtyard. Our room was large and fortunately was on the first floor, i.e. up one flight of stairs, since there is no elevator. However, this review is primarily about the hotel’s very fine restaurant. During our three-week trip we had two outstanding meals featuring traditional German cuisine. This was one of them.

Rather fearful of the quantities sometimes served in German restaurants, we chose to share a small first course, a bowl of Quedlinburger Birnensuppe, or pear soup, which was light and elegant. We chose our main courses also from the local cuisine. The Harzer Topfbraten mit Rosenkohl was just about the juiciest and most flavorful piece of roast pork I have ever tasted, and the vegetables were similar to the usual potatoes and cabbage that you expect in a German restaurant and yet a little different. The other main dish was the Wildgulasch with Rotkohl, a richly flavored venison stew.

The house red wine was stunning. We had a half-liter of halbtrocken Saale-Unstrut from the Landesweingut Kloster Pfarla.

The service was exceptional and the dining room very pleasant and comfortable.

We stopped in here for lunch. at here were four of us in our party and what we ate-- soup, salad and a sausage-- were all excellent. The dining room was bright and cheerful. And our waitress was friendly and on the ball.

An ideal location set in the cobbled centre of a town full of charm. The hotel has the best of both worlds - a historic building with modern comforts. whilst we didn't eat in the restaurant - purely because we wanted to explore the town, and for no other reason, we did enjoy the inner courtyard well tended "biergarten", with drinks at reasonable prices. The bar staff / receptionists were very courteous. Our double room was pleasant and the shower good. Breakfast was lovely, plenty of choice, both hot and cold. Parking - we were on a motorcycle holiday and initially on booking in we parked in front of the hotel to drop off our luggage. Secure hotel parking was at the rear of the building down a very bumpy cobbled street - we were lucky it was dry as if wet it would have been tricky on two wheels.

Having never stayed in the Harz region before we knew no hotels by reputation. This hotel was a real find as it is both beautiful in the old part and very convenient for the town, the buses and the railway station. The restaurant is excellent and decorated to a high standard, the breakfasts are good. The staff were very helpful. Our room was in the new section at the rear of the hotel overlooking a haulage yard which may sound off putting but was a quiet and large room The bier garten in the centre of the hotel was a nice place to sit with a drink at the end of the day.

This hotel is located in a historic building that has been completely renovated. A charming house with real character. Perfect location in the centre of the town. Easy to park in the hotel parking area. Restaurant and biergarten in house. Very good breakfast. Nice and friendly staff. What more can you ask for? Well our weather could have been better....

Room Tip: There are rooms towards the square offering a nice view

I had the opportunity to spend my birthday in Quedlinburg, Germany and since chantarelles (pfifferlinge in German) are my seasonal favorites, we chose this hotel's restaurant. There is inside seating, but we chose to sit in the outiside "biergarten" which is a pleasant inner courtyard of the hotel. It was full of guests and everyone seemed to be enjoying thir dinner. Our server, Frau Lenske, was very attentive and even helped us to change the menu a little so that we could enjoy a Germany speciality, spätzle, with our dinner. We ended up having pork schnitzel, sautéed chantarelles, buttered spätzle and greens and believe me, it was DELICIOUS! All we needed to complete the meal was a cold German beer and the portions were so generous that we had no room for dessert this time. The food was well-prepared and hot when we received it and not pricey at all - about 14 Euros for the entrée. I would recommend this restaurant to any travellor who wants to enjoy a true German meal.

Stayed here while walking & exploring the half timbered medieval city of Quedlinburg.
Walking distance to all in the city. Nice helpful staff, excellent restaurant with local specialities. Quiet, rather ordinary room, clean and all we needed at a good price.
