If you can build on 300 years of history.

You can always look into the past with one eye. Especially when you are very aware of this past and you know that the tradition that began back then continues to this day. Hotel Gerbe has a very long history and has been able to learn and experience a lot over six generations, going through many wonderful times and welcoming many wonderful guests.

Before the 17th century, the buildings of the tannery were part of the Kreuzlingen monastery and were used as a tannery, wine bar and farm. So we have always had to deal with guests who have come to the Gerbe for a good time, which they still do today. The hotel business then developed from 1907 and has been run by the family since 1923. Over 300 years, the monastic tannery, a wine tavern, the obligatory farm and an inn have become today’s Hotel Gerbe, where you can feel the power of this history and the tranquillity of countless moments of hospitality. This place is a place of well-being where you can let yourself go at any time!

Our guests say

Quaint, almost fairytale-like family hotel with lots of tradition!
Absolutely recommendable.
Had a great time there.



It’s nice when you know and love your roots.

Love takes many paths and detours. It is therefore not surprising that the family background of the Hotel Gerbe has taken thousands of twists and turns over the last 300 years until the Knobel family ended up where it is today with its hotel of hospitality. The roots began to take root around 1710 in the buildings of the former Kreuzlingen monastery, when Joseph Jacob came to the Gerbe.



Sometimes you have to walk a part of the story together.

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