The listed ensemble in the historic core of Arnstadt consists of a half-timbered house from 1582/1697 in the Renaissance style and a factory building from the year 1903. Over a hundred years a glove factory was housed here, from 1990 the buildings were vacant for 15 years and dilapidated. The award winning renovation brought back the beauty and the character of the buildings. Traditional materials such as wood, clay, lime and linseed oil colours were used. Where possible the old substance was maintained or otherwise substituted by old building materials. Today, conferences and seminars are held in the former sewing hall of the factory building. In the half-timbered house bright, spacious hotel rooms have been created with a view of the parsonage and the early Gothic upper church or into the idyllic garden.
