The Radisson Blu Schwarzer Bock Hotel
Martin Luther was three years old and America not yet discovered when the “Schwarzer Bock” opened as a bathhouse in 1486. But the history of the land surrounding the hotel even goes back a lot farther: In the basement of the hotel, Roman gravestones and tiles were found. And, today, there are still bricks there from 33 AD. This makes the Radisson Blu Schwarzer Bock Hotel the oldest grand hotel in Germany.
This renowned building was and is still a popular meeting place for prominent figures from politics, business, culture and science. And, naturally, the traditional Badhaus culture is preserved — a fusion of history and the modern world. This is something Goethe and Dostoevsky already appreciated.
The excellent location at the Kranzplatz, next to the Hessian State Chancellery and also in the historical antique quarter allows guests to explore the city of hot springs by foot. A number of attractions such as the Kurhaus with its casino, the Hessian State Theater and the antique flea market mile are right nearby. The beautiful boulevard Wilhelmstraße guarantees an unforgettable shopping experience! Visit the hotel website for more information.
