The eventful history
of the Kaiserhof.
At the beginning of the 20th century, the Kaiserhof was an owner-managed hotel – primarily known for its exuberant dance events in the large ballroom. People met, asked each other to dance and let delicious food gild the evening. Today, some 100 years later, we carefully combine preserved details from back then with modern boutique elements, thus combining tradition with modernity.
We know where we come from and what we stand for today: modern hotel business, excellent gastronomy and encounters that make life worth living. Then as now. Some things just never change.
How it all began:
Around 1490 the building served as a granary of the Teutonic Order lords
Carriage shed of the Thurn- und Taxis post office
Cotton weaving and embroidery of the textile merchant Otto Deffner
Acquisition by the Ravensburg merchant Georg Möhrlin; a few years later start of extensive conversions to a hotel and restaurant of the first ranges
eremonial opening with a banquet in the "Kaisersaal"; the hotel with around 30 rooms and fine restaurant was known in the following years above all for its dance events
Acquisition by the Maurer family, which later used the historic premises to present different living worlds of "Möbel-Maurer
New life is being breathed into the historic "Kaiserhof". The vision of the new owner Hermann Müller: A city hotel that combines design, class and pleasure under one roof
The Hotel Kaiserhof opens and shines with 51 rooms, two restaurants (including the newly interpreted Kaisersaal) on a total of four floors in new splendor
how it all began.
The Kaiserhof is the perfect place for every guest who wants “more”. More in design, class and enjoyment. With the philosophy of a boutique hotel, we place a unique feel-good atmosphere at the centre of our world of values. We create an oasis for people who appreciate quality and enjoyment – a place where people meet with pleasure. Savoir-vivre in the heart of Upper Swabia!
We are not only in love with detail, but also in love with pleasure. From reception to housekeeping to our kitchen crew: our team consists of passionate hosts who are there for our guests with heart and quality and read their every wish from their eyes.
We look forward to welcoming you to the Hotel Kaiserhof Ravensburg.
