"Altes Haus", Bacharach

4.3
#2 of 6 in Historic Sites in Bacharach
A medieval timber-frame house from 1368, "Altes 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.

  • The old House is probably the most picturesque of his kind in Bacharach. It is covered with wine romantic and his timber-frame looks very nice. It acts like an old piece of jewelry. Also it is in the city centre and from anywhere easily accessible. City tour plan do not forget!

  • We ate today for the first time there and be sure again there return during our next visit to Bacharach. A very cosy, rustic restaurant, a friendly, humorous operation and an unexpectedly good food somewhere so tourist convinced us.

  • Quite good local cuisine and offer of local wines. Albeit the kitchen has limited capacity, so be ready to wait a bit if you come with a big company. Btw, a lovely inner yard terrace! (see the picture)
  • The hotel itself is one of the oldest building in town. We had our first meal here when we stayed in Bacharach.
  • Local cuisine, very old house (1392). Afternoon there eaten, all meals freshly prepared, appropriate portions. Toilets in the back yard.
