Hotel Europaische Hof

Hotel Europäischer Hof

A Heidelberg institution, Hotel Europäischer Hof has been offering a luxe hotel experience for more than 150 years. As it’s grown over the years, the hotel has added a state-of-the-art spa, a tranquil garden and a rooftop pool and sun terrace with views out onto the Heidelberg Castle.

The hotel feels luxe from the moment you walk through the round Roman-style entrance and up the red-carpeted central staircase. The lobby has a comfortable gallery sitting area with wood-accented red walls, plush carpets on the marble floor and sage green and soft red chairs around coffee tables. In homage to its long history and prestigious clientele, the sitting area walls are lined with aristocratic portraits from years gone by.

There are 117 rooms and suites, each individually designed with touches like crystal chandeliers, ornate sconces and a consistent palette of red, sage, cream and gold.
