Rooms & Suites
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.

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.

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.
