When further development involves pausing

Dear guests and friends of our house,

Everything is in motion - including our business. Movement always brings about changes. There will also be a change in our hotel at the end of this year.
After more than 90 years as your hosts, we want to restructure our hotel and restaurant business and make it fit for the future.

From 1 January 2020 we will close our à la Carte restaurant and continue to operate the hotel in the usual way for our hotel guests as well as for conferences and group trips.

Due to the tense personnel situation in the hotel business for many years and because of family reasons, we decided to take this step.

All these years we have been able to welcome many of you as our guests. This decision was not easy for us, because we were always very happy to be your hosts and now it is time to say good-bye. Thank you for your loyalty, for many beautiful encounters, for your trust in our house and all the long-term relationships that have resulted from it. You have confirmed us in our work and inspired us again and again. We would also like to thank our employees and the family for the many years they have spent together.


The high quality that a well-managed hotel requires will continue to be our goal in the future, but in a reduced way that will enable us to meet this high obligation even better. We hope for your understanding and that you are perhaps even a little pleased with us, this for us not easy step to have decided.
Many of you have become friends in this long time and we hope that it will remain so.

With warm greetings we would like to say goodbye to all guests and friends of our restaurant.

Your family Knobel
