Where the fun`s at home.


It's nice to know
and love one’s roots.

Love travels through many ways and detours. It is not surprising that the family history of Hotel Gerbe has taken thousands of turns and paths over the past 300 years until the Knobel family came onto the scene, where they now stand with their hotel of hospitality. For the roots begin as early as around the year 1710 in the buildings of the former Kreuzlingen Monastery, when Joseph Jacob came to the Gerbe.

To this day it is his descendants who live, work and offer their hospitality at this property. Although the names have changed, the traditional hospitality is still the same. Today, the family brings a wide range of talents to the business, and the future of the Gerbe is already taking shape. Together, the Knobel family has always come through here throughout its own history, which has been closely linked to the many guests who come and go here every day. The Hotel Gerbe has always been a lively inn, and has been and will continue to be a top priority for generations to come.


My favourite hotel in the area around Lake Constance. Very nice
and courteous staff. A place to feel good!


If you can build on 300 years of history.

With one eye you can always look into the past. Especially if you are very aware of this past and you know that the tradition that started then reaches into the present day. The Hotel Gerbe has a very long history and was able to learn and experience a lot over six generations, to go through many beautiful times and to welcome a lot of wonderful guests.



Sometimes you have to go part of the story together.

The history of Hotel Gerbe has always been shaped by the people who have spent time here. And of course our employees are one of the biggest components of this story. They shape the daily encounters in the hotel business and, with their ideas, push Hotel Gerbe on the path of hospitality and well-being.



Hotel Gerbe is constantly on the move for you.

For each headway, you have to pause now and then. Therefore, our hotel is not only a place for busy meetings and sports activities, but also for rest and relaxation. With this breadth of approaches we work daily on new ideas and on our general orientation as a hotel.
