Bavaria, in Germany has added new hotels to it’s list of “sightsleeping” hotels. These hotles include castles, monasteries and manor houses that are each a unique tourist attraction in and of itself.
This year, Bavaria Tourism has added five new hotels to their sightsleeping brand of properties. These places offer accommodation to those with an eye for art and culture, with both historical buildings, and contemporary hotels with visual appeal being added to the list.
The new properties, chosen by a jury of experts from the fields of art, design, marketing, and travel journalism, aim to combine an artistic experience with a comfortable stay. The properties were judged based on their aesthetic appeal, as well as creativity and distinctiveness. They are also required to offer a range of activities to visitors, such as concerts, readings, or plays.
The five new properties added to the sightsleeping list in 2018 include the Gut Hartschimmel, the Gut Steinbach, the Hotel Wilder Mann, the Staudacher Hof, and the quartier–lodges tagesbar forum.
The Gut Hartschimmel in Pahl is an organic farm, where guests can stay in renovated chalets from 1917, while at the Gut Steinbach in Reit im Winkl in the Bavarian Alps, the chalets are inspired by the unique creations of the regionla craftsmen, and are located near a natural pond. The picturesque Baroque Hotel Wilder Mann, set in the old town of Passau, has been a popular destination since the 19th century, and it’s rooms are furnished with magnificent antiques. Count Zepplin, and the Empress Elisabeth I are among this hotel’s distinguished historic guests.
The Staudacher Hof, in Garmisch-Partenkirchen, is set amidst the idyllic Zugspitze. It has been in the same family for over 110 years. Located near by, The quartier – lodges tagesbar forum, is a renovated 1906 villa.
These locations, like the numerous other hotels on Bavaria’s sightsleeping list, allow you to immerse yourself in history, art, and culture in a wholly unique way.
