Hotel Gasthof Krone

The traditional Hotel Gasthof Krone is centrally located at the village square of von Hiltisau in the Bregenzerwald. The typical log building from 1838 was originally a courthouse, but has been used as an inn for 170 years. At the beginning of the 2000s, architect Bernardo Bader carefully renovated the building with great respect for its old structure and extendet it with six rooms. What has been added in a modern way is clearly recognisable, but does not form a contrast, but a harmonious addition to the old. The finesse of the local craftsmen can be seen in every detail in the dining rooms and hotel rooms.
