Family run since 1898

Founded and built more than 120 years ago by Anton and Ida Diedrich. Today still managed by the Diedrich family, in the meantime in the fourth generation.

We have always focused on a single goal: to make friends out of guests. Friends of the house and friends of each other. That's why we always keep a close eye on what people actually need. If we had offered in 1898 what we offer today, we would have failed impressively. If we were to offer today what we offered then, of course, we would likewise fail. Fortunately, we have understood this quite well.

Already in the founding year 1898 our house was a place to refuel, because at that time we accommodated as a postal station many people passing through. With us they ate fresh and good food, had great conversations among themselves and let us ease their long ways.

Today, more than 120 years later, we have become the destination of the journey. We are a refuge and an oasis of calm with plenty of space to recharge.

In the meantime, we have created for you a place that takes into account today's desires and necessities. A place of well-being, artful enjoyment and holistic "wellbeings". But not just any place we have created, no, a special place with a special offer. A place to fall in love with. A place that you will keep in the best memory.

How did we manage that? Not by using superlatives and gimmicky bells and whistles. But through empathetic listening and listening to what our guests told us. We deliberately left out everything else so that we could concentrate on the essentials. On the one hand, this is the proverbial Diedrich's hospitality & hospitableness, which we have carried in our genes for generations. On the other hand, the very special concept - one that we are particularly proud of: a concept with which we lead you back to peace, balance and your inner center.

See land again

For ourselves, the words "see land again" always inspire us to think - to reflect; to listen within ourselves. For us, it means clarifying our own view, coming to ourselves and opening up new perspectives. What do you associate with the words "See land again"?

Hotel Diedrich anno 1898

In 1898 Anton & Ida Diedrich realized the dream of building a hotel. After the official permission was granted on June 15, 1898, the opening of the hotel took place in December 1898.

At the same time, the two built a rental building for the Imperial Post Office in the annex to the hotel. Even today, the restaurant "Alte Post" and the Poststube are reminders of the almost 90-year rental history.

Our milestones


We continue to be full of ideas and so, today as in the past, we work tirelessly to provide you with a place of refuge to recharge.
