Welcome to the holiday destination Saaleland

… where you can renew your energy and experience something special. Our once-in-a-lifetime mixture of history, culture and scenery is waiting for you. Our hotel is located in the middle of all this, in a woodland region known as the Thuringian Holzland.

It is characterized by delightful valleys, half-timbered houses, mills and of course, the hospitable “Holzländer” people themselves. On the way to the battle at Jena-Auerstedt in 1806, Napoleon’s troops left a canon behind at the guesthouse in Tautenhain. Since then, this canon bears the name “Zur Kanone”.
