Hotel Krone has been welcoming guests to Kestert since the 19th century.

The History of Hotel KRONE

During the course of the period known as “Rhine Romanticism”, what had once been just a small country inn developed into today’s Hotel Krone. In the old days it was a staging inn, i.e. a roadhouse where the teams of horses that pulled boats upstream along the towpath were changed. For four generations the hotel was run by the Dieseler and Chmielewski families. In March 2008 the young hotelier Andreas Löffler and his family took over the business with the aim of preserving its tradition and ensuring Hotel Krone’s continued success in the future. Since the spring of 2017 Hotel Krone has undergone expansion to include the premises and spa area of the former Hotel “Goldner Stern” which is situated directly next door.
