by Airplane

If you fly, target the airport Frankfurt/Main (FRA), Frankfurt/Hahn (HHN) or Colonge (CGN).

From Frankfurt/Main go to long distance trains and take a train to Koblenz. Every hour at least one train leaves towards Koblenz. Sometimes you need to switch train in Mainz.

From Frankfurt/Hahn, you find a bus shuttle to Koblenz main station.

From Colonge Airport to Koblenz is a local train (RE) once every hour. Or you take one of the other trains and switch train in Bonn or Colonge station.

by train

From main station you can walk or take the bus. You need to take bus to Löhr Center and than switch to one of line 3, 355 and 301 will take you to the Ludwig-Erhard-Straße. From there walk along the Ludwig-Erhard-Straße for 200 meter to the end where the hotel is.

by Car

Ask your GPS for directions to Pastor-Klein-Straße 19, 56073 Koblenz.

Special Train Offers

For our non European visitors (e.g. USA or Canada), we highly recommend to check the special offers from Bahn.de for you. For example within 30 days you can use a 3 day pass for just 188 Euro. You can start in Koblenz, take a direct train to Berlin, stay there for a visit, take another train to Munich, enjoy a few days there and take a final train back to the airport in Frankfurt. Of course you can stay in Frankfurt another night and enjoy visiting German's financial capital. Oktoberfest from 21st September on can be a highlight of your trip to Munich.

Sight Seeing Day

For our guests from far away, we offer a sight seeing day.

The idea is to collect upfront 50 Euro incl. VAT per participant. We'll rent a bus and drive to a couple of nice places for history. Like middle age castle, monastery, historic city center, roman ruins or some other items. Exact places will be decided short before trip to make sure we cover interests of group. Stops for lunch and dinner will also be included and we'll look for unique restaurants for that. Money is spend for bus and gas. If there is money left on dinner time, we probably can invest it in a round of drinks.
