"Altes Haus", Bacharach

(70+ reviews on the web)
Historic Site Tourist Spot
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. Use our Bacharach holiday planner to arrange your visit to "Altes Haus" and other attractions in Bacharach.

  • 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.
