History of the Hotel "Zum Hechten"

Philosophy in Fussen for over 350 years

The Hotel Zum Hechten has been welcoming guests for over 350 years. Already in the fourth generation, the Pfeiffer family runs the hotel.

A time-honored house

The Hotel "Zum Hechten" counts as one of the oldest accommodations in the region, according to the town chronicle.

Since the Pfeiffer family took over the house in 1928, a lot of changes have been made to these dignified lodgings. The hotel has been expanded and refurbished a number of times, as well as being completely reconstructed after a devastating fire. All this has turned it into the romantic traditional lodgings we welcome you to today.

Today, the hotel offers all the comforts you could possibly wish for on the vacation of your dreams. Our offer includes 6 e-charging stations (for e-cars and e-bikes) that you can use during your stay. We will be happy if you contribute to a greener future.

Who says that hotels have to be impersonal?

Honest and personal service is worth everything.With heart and hard work, we look after the well-being of our guests.

But who says it has to be over-priced?

The Altstadthotel Zum Hechten lives and breathes through pure and sincere hospitality.

Real, honest and earthbound - this is not only the Bavarian people's way of living. This is also the philosophy of the team in the Hotel "Zum Hechten" which is lived day in, day out.

The family Pfeiffer has been welcoming their guests personally for generations. Many return every year and have made the Neuschwanstein countryside their home away from home.

Why do they return? It must be for the delicious culinary delights. Or for the quiet, cozy comfort rooms in the midst of the historical town. Maybe they return for the wonderful scenery and great excursions...


... or simply for the feeling of comfort and ease.
