The hotel

Very good service; lovely rooms; good breakfast, fabulous location on the market square outside the cathedral. Worth the splurge to stay in that part of the Hotel. (The main part is a block away, and still quite nice.) Very good service; lovely rooms; good breakfast, fabulous location on the market square outside the cathedral.

With its unique location on Freiburg's Münsterplatz, our privately run hotel has been a popular place to stay in Freiburg for generations. Our numerous regular guests appreciate the warm, personal service; new guests look forward to individual advice from our team: for their stay in our house, in the city we love and the surrounding regions of Breisgau, Kaiserstuhl, Markgräflerland and the Black Forest. And they all appreciate the successful combination of tradition and contemporary amenities.

All of our rooms, from the smallest single room to the spacious suite with a view of the Münster, have been personally and individually designed by Doris Hunn. With appreciation for the history of the house and great attention to detail, they combine tradition with modern living comfort - each room is as unique as its location in our historic house. Browse through the photo galleries and let yourself be surprised. We are sure that there is something for every taste - each of us from our team has a different favorite room.

Located on the three floors above our restaurant on Münsterplatz, our «exclusive rooms» and suites offer unique views of the facade of the Freiburg Minster with its artistically designed figures, gargoyles and carvings - almost as if you could touch them! Be woken up by the ringing of the Freiburg Minster - the bell cage has 19 bells, the oldest of which was cast in 1258. In the morning you can watch from these windows how the Münsterplatz slowly comes to life with its daily market. During the day you can experience the liveliness on this most important square in the city, and in the evening it sinks into the quiet sociable hubbub of the connoisseurs of its diverse gastronomic offers.

In the same block of buildings, towards the parallel Schusterstraße and connected via Freiburg's narrowest street, the Kaufhausgässle, our guests also reside in our second house: historically, it was the stables of the opposite «Sickingerpalais» (today's district court) with its coach house (in which we now house the modern carriages), its tethering and provisioning facilities for horses in the current lobby, and the rooms above for travellers, officers and staff, which was rebuilt in 1956 and added to the hotel. In the single and double rooms of various sizes located here, you can stay for any occasion: from the small, cosy «officers' rooms» to double rooms and comfortable junior suites, there is something for every request. Views of the pedestrian zone or small, labyrinthine inner patios allow you to discover the city from a different perspective again and again!

Also from a culinary point of view, staying in our house with its more than 250 years of hospitality leaves nothing to be desired: Start the day with our rich buffet with sparkling wine and vitality breakfast - in good weather you are welcome on our sun terrace facing the Münster. During the day and into the evening, our kitchen team will spoil you with regional specialties and a selection of fine wines from the surrounding wine-growing regions.

– An initiative by Freiburg restaurants and the tourism board FWTM –

As a special offer for our guests, we have jointly developed a sustainable seal of quality with the following characteristics:

  • The dishes of the Freiburg menu are consistently prepared from at least 70% ingredients from the region
  • The ingredients originate from suppliers within a maximum radius of 130km from Freiburg
  • In terms of content, every restaurateur is free in his creative design and offers dishes that suit his own house and kitchen
  • All dishes that are part of the menu are marked with the Freiburg logo on the menu
  • The Freiburg menu is offered all year and changes at least 4 times a year to emphasize the regionality and seasonality
  • To enhance transparency, we are happy to inform you about the exact origin of the products
  • Regional drinks such as water, juices, beer, wine and spirits are offered to match the menu

We are very pleased to be part of this initiative and to be able to put the culinary wealth of our region in the foreground – we wish you bon appetite!
