Welcome to HOTEL JAKOB

Ladies and gentlemen,
we would like to take this opportunity to give you a brief history and some information about our hotel.

In 1970, as young newlyweds, we took over the small family business.

It was a restaurant called “Ratsstube” which had previously been excellently run by, Leni Thomas, our mother. After 10 successful years our dream of building and running our own hotel came true. On the 10th October 1980 with 12 bedrooms and the name “Gästehaus Jakob” we proudly opened for business. Over the years we have invested a lot of love and dedication to bring the hotel to its present standing. So now, with the support of our son Ingo Jakob, we are able to present you with a “matured to perfection” 3 star hotel which caters for your every need. As the last building nestling on the edge of the vineyards we can offer a dreamlike location. Which through its stunning views and tranquillity will certainly capture your heart.

We now offer 40 spacious well equipped rooms in the following categories standard, comfort, superior.
There are also a range of suites available each individually designed. One which is fitted with a small conference area and a guest bathroom. Two of our suites include a jacuzzi and have spectacular panoramic views. We have also suites that are able to be used as family rooms.
