Alte Haus, Bacharach

(3.7/5 based on 65+ reviews on the web)
A medieval timber-frame house from 1368, Alte Haus is the site of a popular restaurant in the center of the city. While many of the old municipal buildings were destroyed by a series of fires at the turn of the 19th century, this "Old House" escaped the devastation almost unscathed by the flames. The house is one of the city's main landmarks, featuring four gables, corner turrets, and Rococo doors. The medieval interior more than makes up for the relatively limited food menu, and dining here is like stepping back in time. While waiting for your platter of cheese and bread, ask the staff to show you the book of old photographs; it reveals how everything in the city except for this old house has changed over the years. Use our Bacharach holiday planner to arrange your visit to Alte Haus and other attractions in Bacharach.

  • The beauty of its construction, the rest of the adjoining houses, the street and few but care business, make it a very nice place. We were not wrong when we choose as a stop of the trip to this town

  • Sehr kleine Karte, große Getränkekarte. Alte Einrichtung.
  • This hotel offers wonderfully beautiful rustic and spacious rooms with modern furnishings and wonderful views of the busy railroad track next door. In the spacious bathroom you can be at the crap even with the kneel at the wall support. The 15-inch multimedia center from 1987 amazed by his high-contrast colors and the barely perceptible noise. The high speed WiFi connection works properly, you should get a password.

  • Rude and it is not observed. Maybe it was because we are too young. Dinner will take at least 60 minutes - do you mean: disappears.

  • Comfortable hotel in the city centre next to the Church. The room was clean and the breakfast plentiful. The Rezeptionistin Nina always had a kind word and gave us good tips to our two Rheinsteig hikes north towards Lorch and southward in the direction of Rüdesheim. We come back.

  • Very negative - unwilling, rude, heartless. When we, surprised by the downpour, cooled and hungry consumption deliberately asked for a place, we were dismissed, although five tables were free.
