Hotel Krämerbrücke

Stay in our wonderful accommodation by the Merchants' Bridge in Erfurt

The 4-star hotel boats a magnificent location directly on the Krämerbrücke between neat patrician houses and lovingly reconstructed half-timbered houses. All rooms have a completely new, modern feel. The wintergarden, the event and banqueting rooms “Wieland”, the hotel bar, the lobby and the traditional restaurant “Zum Alten Schwan” were given a completely new look. We are also technically up to date. The harmonious color concept and a clear design language underline the special character of the hotel. All renovation measures were individually tailored to the character of the hotel. A very special highlight of our hotel are the 6 rooms directly on the historic Krämerbrücke. The new created ambience invites you to linger and enjoy.

A building with a history

Since the middle ages, guests have come from near and far to dine at the restaurant "Alter Schwan". The tavern "Zum Alten Schwan" was first mentioned in 1310 as a depot in which merchants parked their wagons and settled down for food and drink. Today, the building belongs to Erfurt's oldest secular buildings and was presumably built in the 15th century as the community centre "Güldener Strauß". During the Renaissance, larger windows as well as the entrance portal were added. Back in 1965, "Alter Schwan" was completely overhauled, and served as a quaint and extremely popular wine restaurant for Erfurt's residents until 1995, when it gained a new addition and was renovated in close coordination with the department for historical preservation in Erfurt. In the same year, the first and only hotel right next to the Merchants' Bridge opened, and the hotel's own restaurant "Zum Alten Schwan" also shone in new splendour. As part of the restoration of the "Haus zum Roten Turm" in 2004, six individual hotel rooms were constructed on two levels, lovingly designed with modest and reserved furniture.
