Historic Building and Facilities

Architectural Heritage

Originally a two-storey farmhouse with a hops storehouse, our building was transformed into a hotel in 1896 with 80 rooms on three floors but no running water, as was common at that time, and only one bathroom. The rich heritage of our building is still reflected in various facilities of the property.


Nuremberg's Protected Monument

This elegantly mirrored and chandeliered room in Belle Epoque style is a protected monument and probably the most splendid hotel ballroom in Nuremberg, Germany. Motives of the world famous Richard-Wagner-Operas create an atmosphere which turns this venue into the ideal place for unforgettable events, dinners and conferences.

The Dalai Lama, Gerhard Schroeder and The Beatles - the list of famous guests who once stayed at Le Méridien Grand Hotel Nuremberg is very long. Find out more about a historic hotel that has been hosting international luminaries in the Nuremberg city center for nearly 125 years.

1895: Birth of the Grand Hotel

Oskar Weigel acquired a historic two-story farmhouse with a hops storehouse from the Heidenreich family. He converted this into a hotel and extended the property to include the third floor. Just one year later the Grand Hotel Nuremberg opened its doors. It included approx. 80 rooms with 100 beds but no running water, as was common at that time, and only one bathroom.

1914 & 1939: World War I + II

In the years preceding World War I, Nuremberg was increasingly becoming a tourist hotspot - not least due to the Bayreuth Festival. After the hotel was expanded by Rudolf Lotz, the main entrance faced the Bahnhofsplatz. Out hotel in the city center then comprised an incredible 35 private residences and 5 apartments. The hotel’s heyday was however interrupted by World War I after just one season and tourism in Nuremberg came to an almost complete standstill.

After Nuremberg was rebuilt, the hotel's heyday was once more interrupted - by the Second World War. In the years preceding this, the Grand Hotel Nuremberg was the only residence aristocrats, industrialists, and other high-ranking individuals would consider staying. After the war, the Grand Hotel soon regained its previous splendour in the hands of the Lotz family with a historic array of entertainers such as Hildegard Knef, Bob Dylan, Harry Belafonte, The Beatles, Herbert von Karajan, and Joe Cocker staying there whilst in Nuremberg.

1996: Incorporation into Le Méridien Hotels

In November, after changing ownership several times, the Grand Hotel Nuremberg is incorporated into the world-renowned category of Le Méridien Hotels.

2005: Starwood Hotels & Resorts

Going forward, corporate clients and regular guests of the Grand Hotel will be able to take advantage of more than 850 new travel destinations worldwide. They can also take advantage of the benefits offered by several loyalty programs.

2006: The Football World Cup in Germany

We did it! For the five World Cup games played in Nuremberg, the national teams of Mexico, England, Japan, Ghana, and Portugal stayed at the hotel. In addition to some 75 hotel rooms, split exclusively over two private floors, the historic Richard Wagner ballroom served as a dining room for players and officials.

2008: Visit by the Dalai Lama

In 2008, we had the honour of welcoming the Dalai Lama as a guest at Le Méridien Grand Hotel Nuremberg. The Dalai Lama joined the Le Méridien Grand Hotel Nuremberg’s historic list of prominent guests, which includes Germany's Federal President Frank-Walter Steinmeier, chancellor Olaf Scholz, and The Beatles.
