Hospitality in the 19hundert
„Einen Gast haben, heißt für sein Glück sorgen, so lange er unter unserem Dach weilt.“
(Saying: Having a guest means caring for his joy during his stay.)
Owner and staff are honoured to welcome you in the hotel 19hundert.
If our house seems a little old-fashioned to you, you’re completely right. We want to cosset our guests and serve them as in the „good old days“, very individually and according to your wishes. Our little hotel with its 12 spacious and affectionately arranged rooms is like an oasis in the middle of the daily hustle and bustle, comfortable and romantic.
All rooms include WC/Shower and free Internet by WLAN and/or cable. Our staff will love to fulfil your beverage requests. The hotel’s own parking spaces are free for our guests. Our breakfast menu offers a wide range to the taste of everyone.
The 19hundert is the ideal starting point for your holiday in the Black Forest.
The traditional hiking trails begin not far from the hotel: The „Westweg“ to Basel, the „Mittelweg“ to Waldshut, and the „Ostweg“ to Schaffhausen. To the hikers among our guests we offer luggage transport to the next stage.
The Black Forest and the state of Baden-Württemberg with their countless attractions and culinary highlights are counted among the most beautiful regions in Europe. Make the 19hundert your starting point for your trips in the southwest of Germany. Even Alsace is only a stone’s throw away from here.
The hotel was built in the year 1900 and initially served as a climatic spa.
There is an old photo which shows a group of daughters from wealthy families, who are doing gymnastic exercises for the purpose of recovery and physical training in the grassland next to the river „Nagold“. A stay at a health resort in the oxygen-rich air of the Black Forest has always been considered as an effective method against several civilizational illnesses.
The First World War ended the career of the spa hotel as an institution of health care. At that time the house and the tavern turned into a popular destination and location for the festivities of Pforzheim’s society and were also well-known for dance events. This chapter ended in 1945, fortunately as the building escaped the bombardment its authentic, historic structure could be preserved.
In the post-war years the 19hundert served as a collective accomodation for refugees for a long time. In the 1950s ist was run as a simple guest house by the hotelier family Auer, but soon fell into a deep sleep for decades provoked by several strokes of fate that fell on the family.
In 1998 the current owner Thomas Köhler purchased the building and restored it to its original state, but with modern technology. Velit and Ahmet Özeginci as tenants care for the hotel and restaurant since April 2016 as tenants.
