Our COVID-19 Measures

We are there for you!


Unfortunately, we have to close from November 5th, 2020 until probably May 19th, 2021 due to official requirements (more information here). Nevertheless, we are aware of our responsibility and have discussed the topics of measures, protection and security extensively with selected experts. We have further optimized our current high standard regarding hygiene measures. Of course, we have already polished out our hotel to perfection, shaken the upholstery extra softly and polished all sorts of surfaces. We will of course repeat this very often until the actual (re) opening. In this way you can recharge your batteries and relax during your imperial stay. In this context we hope for your support!
