Hotels in Germany

For travelers who prefer an unparalleled luxury experience, the majestic Park Hyatt, Hamburg, the glamorous Breidenbacher Hof in Dusseldorf, and Munich’s Mandarin Oriental are some of the best hotels in Germany.

However, for those looking for hotels in Germany that offer an individualized, personal experience and a cozy, stay-in atmosphere, visitors will be delighted to learn that Germany hotels — like many of Europe’s hotels — are oftentimes full of unique and affordable charms if you opt for small, local inns or bed and breakfasts.

Located in the foothills of the Alps, Schloss Elmau Luxury Spa & Cultural Hideaway is one of the most unique hotels in Germany. Guests can enjoy four different spa facilities, each of which offers its own specialties that range from saltwater pools to steam rooms to yoga courses. However, the most important offering at Schloss Elmau is its dedication to bringing major musicians for performances at the hotel.

Housed inside an upscale, repurposed, 19th-century apartment building, the Reihmers Hofgarten has 22 exclusive guestrooms and one suite.

Well-appointed riverside accommodations on the grounds of the S.A. Prüm winery.

This newly expanded hotel is set around a secluded courtyard and has a modern café to match its 50 studios and apartments.

The 2007 renovated hotel occupies an 1870's building and has a delightful heated rooftop pool and patio. The hotel's Michelin-starred Restaurant Mark's is open for an elegant Christmas Eve meal of almond-covered venison with cherries and semolina strudel.

Formerly chef de cuisine at Berlin’s trendiest (and tastiest) restaurant, Vau, Florian Löffler traded urban bright lights for a rural retreat in the Feldberg Lake District. Two hours northeast of Berlin, the magical landscape—lakes, forests, sunflower fields—was part of the draw.

Germany's media and art luminaries favor this 49-room hotel's color-saturated, mischievous design (the lamps are penguins wearing shades on their heads) and its boisterous bar scene.

The 13th-century fortress is one of the most hauntingly romantic places in Europe.

The 77-room East Hotel, in the city’s rapidly gentrifying red-light district, was created by Jordan Mozer, the Chicago-based interior designer.

A mix of business travelers and design-savvy hipsters appreciate the Ku’Damm’s sleek, clean-lined aesthetic.

Designed by architect and native son Christoph Sattler (who helped redevelop Berlin’s Potsdamer Platz), the Charles Hotel was inspired by the Belle Époque hotels of the Côte d’Azur.
