The only five-star hotel in the region, the Europäischer Hof is run by the same family that founded it over a century ago. The decor is stylish and elegant, featuring a number of carefully chosen antiques. The hotel's high repute is reflected in the caliber of its guests: statesmen such as Churchill and Eisenhower, and stars like Peter Ustinov, Phil Collins and Montserrat Caballe have all experienced the hotel's fine service and excellent facilities. Gym, full-service sauna and an indoor swimming pool promise complete relaxation and rejuvenation. All its ornately designed rooms feature plush furnishings and parquet flooring, creating an air of neat sophistication. A swanky restaurant serves up delectable fare, while a summer tavern, cafe and bars proffer idyllic setting to spend a relaxed evening. The majestic Schwetzinger palace is a short drive from the hotel.
