A charming hotel. A warm welcome. A history. Welcome to Christel and Herbert Rösch's hotel.
“We welcome our guests and give them a memorable stay in a charming family establishment.”
It is set in a beautiful 5-floor building with windows with red blinds and decorated with flowers. A romantic postcard image of Germany in the Baden-Württemberg region. Christel and Herbert took over the family business a few years ago. “We see our establishment as more of a guest house than a hotel. You will be welcomed here by us but also by the ‘spirit’ of Tübingen’s history!” The history of this place goes back a long way. Back to 1600 when this former annex to the local castle was built. Today, The Originals Boutique, Hotel Am Schloss, has 28 rooms and a restaurant renowned for its Swabian cuisine. Its location, overlooking the town and at the foot of the gates of Hohentübingen castle, means you can enjoy the historic centre of Tübingen while also having a magnificent view over the rest of one of Germany’s most important university towns. “Our guests also enjoy the family atmosphere and authenticity at our 3-star establishment which is in perfect harmony with the regional setting.”
The Originals Boutique, Hotel Am Schloss's 28 rooms offer a double view. On one side they give a view of the castle, on the other they overlook the town. Each bears the name of a typical place in Tüningen. The decor is sometimes contemporary and sometimes more classic as the renovation is ongoing. The spacious, comfortable and well equipped rooms can accommodate up to 4 people. The hotel does not have a lift.
- Non smoking room
Food is served in a freshly renovated room. The morning buffet follows the trend of German breakfasts: enormous! For lunch and dinner you can choose from a renowned menu of Swabian specialities with French and Italian influences. It is recommended to book a table as the place is small and well known. If you are lucky you will be able to sit out on the terrace and enjoy the view over the roofs of Tübingen’s old town.
The pleasant cocoon which is The Originals Boutique, Hotel Am Schloss, is just one of the delights awaiting you in the Baden-Württemberg region. Christel and Herbert will be happy to help you decide where to explore and what to experience.
Christel and Herbert offer the chance to play a round of golf at the Golfclub Schloss Kressbach (18 holes), 10 minutes from the establishment.
Half-timbered houses, little paved streets leading up to the high point of the town and its medieval and Renaissance castle... Tübingen has an appealing old charm and authenticity but also a youthfulness and energy, in fitting with the university town. Take a trip around the historic districts in a flat-bottomed boat. Don’t miss Bebenhausen abbey’s Cistercian cloister or the Hohentübingen castle museum, a monument buzzing with history which today houses science and archaeology institutes as well as the largest wooden vat ever filled to this day with a capacity of 84,000 litres.
