zum koch

in Ortenburg since 1680

The name of our establishment, "Zum Koch", goes back to the historical period of the counts. As a carefully-run family business, we provide for our guests' well-being with passion and warm hospitality - and all of this since 1680.

Our establishment may have grown with the generations, but the core of our business philosophy has always remained the same, and namely our passion: for a unique, feel-good atmosphere. For regionality and a closeness to nature. For new, fresh ideas. For refined wellness offers. For our guests. For you.

The harmony of tradition and modernity lends our establishment a distinct character and makes it the perfect retreat for an unforgettable holiday. Here, everyone will find their favourite spot. Guaranteed!
We, the Meyerhofer family and our dedicated employees, look forward to being able to welcome you in person soon!
Families with children are also more than welcome.

Above all, it was the apple trees in front of our establishment's door and the Apfel-Radl-Weg [Apple Cycle Path], which also snakes through Ortenburg as part of its 91 kilometres and which is a true sea of blossom in spring, that inspired us to take up the charm of apples as a theme throughout our hotel: Our new Cellini Bar, the Manzana dining area, and much more. Get ready - fabulous discoveries are waiting to be made!
