Villa Hammerschmiede

5-Star Hotel in the former mansion of the Krupp Company

The owner remembers…

“It was the vast mansion owned for decades by the Krupp Company that challenged me to fulfil my dreams. As your hosts, we strive to be “the family” in the best tradition of the term.
An intimate atmosphere in the hotel and restaurant, customer satisfaction and optimal value for money… Family and staff alike take great pride in their work and aim to offer you simply the best”

Norbert Schwalbe

A dream come true

When Norbert Schwalbe bought the old Villa, it was the first step toward fulfilling a dream. He and his family wanted to be hoteliers with a team of staff who share their passion for their work. The starting point was a vast mansion built in 1893. The outer structure carefully restored, the rooms brand new, stylishly renovated. His knowledge of today’s gastronomic opportunities was put to good use, producing very convincing results. A new hotel was thus created under the management of Annette Schwalbe, the owner’s daughter. With 25 rooms and 5 distinctly exclusive suites offering a total of 59 beds, the hotel is a haven of cosiness.


A music and fireplace room and a library invite you to sit down and relax for a while. We also offer roomy meeting rooms equipped with the latest in conference technology. Two other small rooms may be used for working groups.
A uniquely shaped swimming pool with counter-current system, sauna, steam bath and whirlpool, and a small fitness room offer varied opportunities to exercise or relax.
The large park is an invitation to stroll or sit and watch the world go by. Where better to spend a holiday or just the weekend than in such a pleasant environment?
