This medieval hotel is located in the very center.
It is famous for its old traditions and is proud of its world-famous guests who used to stay there: Lucas Cranach, Johann Senastian Bach, Franz Liszt, Leo Tolstoy, Thomas Mann and others.
The hotel has all modern conveniences and is itself a piece of the city history.
It was a privilege for our students' group to stay overnight there.

Unique Qualities: The hotel has a unique historical atmosphere, "Elephantenkeller" restaurant.
I liked the proximity to all the main sites of the city.
You can see the hotel emblem on the photo here.
This hotel has been famous for centuries as the city central hotel where lots of well-known people coming to Weimar have stayed.
Thomas Mann made this hotel famous in his novel "Lotte in Weimar".
