Get a feel for German history at the remarkable Kloster Hornbach, a restored 8th century monastery, not far from the French border. Stroll the cloisters which connect the main house, abbot's house and old school house and marvel at the medieval architecture.
Kloster Hornbach has 34 stunningly restored suites and rooms that combine old world charm with modern elegance. Each has been made warm and cosy with personal touches from the private family owners.
Situated in the unspoilt Palatinate area, not far from Zweibrucken, Hornbach is a quiet town that works as a perfect base for those seeking beautiful landscapes and rustic adventures.
In keeping with the complex’s past, Kloster Hornbach offers some simple pilgrim style rooms for those that want to focus on reflection. For those looking for modern comforts, the rest of the rooms come with a mix of influences, from Mediterranean, Asian, African and even Shaker styles.
Dine under the cross-vaulted ceiling at the hotel’s fine dining and intime restaurant, which focuses on local ingredients and a fusion of German cuisine with old monasterial recipes.
The hotel’s three restaurants will make sure you’re well fed with typically warm German hospitality. Try the Refugium for modern German cuisine, or the Klosterschänke for more regional and rustic fare.
For those interested in European history, Hornbach is a kilometre from the French border and around 12 kilometres from the old military fortress town of Bitche.
