— The Gasthof Gentner —
A family tradition
Spielberg is located in Middle Franconia – approx. 60 km away from Nuremberg – on the northern edge of the Franconian “Hahnenkamm” (a mountain ridge in Bavaria, Germany, called “cockscomb”). On the hill of this picturesque place is the Spielberg Castle and underneath the castle hill is the guesthouse Gentner. For more than 150 years, the Gentner family has run this country estate in Spielberg but its history dates back even further. During the 17th century, the estate had been the brewery and building yard of the Spielberg Castle.
The estate´s servants provided for the family of the lord of the castle and accommodated their guests. Today, we spoil our guests with culinary delights in a house which is almost 400 years old. Anybody who enters the guesthouse makes a journey through time as its look has not changed since the 19th century. Back then, around 1850, the brewery was built. Up until 1975, the Gentner family had brewed their own beer there. Even today, the visitors of the Spielberg Castle like to combine their excursion to the castle with a nice meal at the guesthouse.
The Gentner family has preserved their property respectfully and has modernized it with all due regard. With the furniture and flair of the good old days, new life has been brought to the premises without giving up on today´s comfort.
