Hotel & Restaurant Schwarzer Bock

Sustainable living and spectacular service meet

Hotel & Restaurant Schwarzer Bock

I and the rest of my family, the Fuhrmanns, are thrilled to introduce you to our historic hotel: Hotel & Restaurant Schwarzer Bock. Our guiding philosophy is to provide all those who visit us with first-class, personalised service, at the same time as taking steps to preserve our property’s heritage while adapting it to modern times. You’ll find sumptuous food and beautiful rooms behind our doors, while just outside of them, a wealth of experiences just waiting to be savoured in boundless Bavaria. Could your next adventure be with us?

Feel at home at Hotel & Restaurant Schwarzer Bock: where modern living and medieval flair come together. With three children of our own, my wife and I welcome families, children and pets from the world-over to our boutique hotel, which over centuries has functioned as an inn and guesthouse in the centre of the charming city of Ansbach. Free Wi-Fi, hi-tech Nespresso machines and flat-screen TVs are just a few of the contemporary comforts you can expect to find in our rooms, all of which include shower facilities and ultra-soft furniture for the whole family. Whether you’re travelling for business or leisure, we can accommodate you… and feed you in our typically Bavarian restaurant, which has already hosted many famous guests including the Prince Regent of Bavaria, German chancellors and presidents, and famous names in industry and the arts. We’re big believers in matching our property’s historic charm with convenient features to help your trip go smoothly. Car parking is available in front of and close to the building, and we offer a range of different bed types for children. Pets are also allowed on request for a small additional fee. Whatever you need, feel free to ask – we’ll always do our best to help.

At Hotel & Restaurant Schwarzer Bock, we care about you… and the planet, too. We’ve taken several steps to reduce the carbon footprint of our historic property.
