Hotel Goldene Traube Coburg – Three Centuries Of Tradition
The Hotel Goldene Traube has a long history and tradition in hospitality. Since 1585, the hotel was in operation in the historic city center of Coburg. The hotel is located on a historic site in Coburg near the Jew’s Gate.
Over 400 years ago, it started as a wine bar in the Ketschengasse 5. After moving into a butcher’s shop in the Judengasse 13 in Coburg, the inn became the popular „Zur Weintrauben“ restaurant in the old town of Coburg for decades.
A Hotel Is Born
Restaurant owner and Postmaster Johann Christian Specht undertook a decisive step after he acquired the gardens behind the estate in 1760.
Exactly 100 years later, the inn had been extended and renovated as a hotel by his successor. A little later, it became a summer business location in the gardens and soon enjoyed great popularity among the population of Coburg.
In the late 19th century, the hotelier family of Fritz Götze bought the hotel and sold the building in Judengasse 13, Coburg. Götze tore down the summer location in the gardens and built the new Hotel Goldene Traube in the usual art nouveau style. The facade fit harmoniously with the environment. Until today, this style extends from the Jew’s Gate to Ernstplatz to the street named ‘Obere Anlage’ in Coburg.
Towards the end of World War II, the hotel was badly damaged by bombing. Since the reconstruction, it has been repeatedly rebuilt and expanded in the past few decades.
Since then, dozens of famous and internationally renowned personalities such as politicians, royalty and cultural figures as well as athletes have felt welcomed as our hotel guests and come back regularly.
Arrive, Enjoy And Savor
Continuing with the eventful history of the hotel since 1994, the Glauben family built up the most traditional hotel operation between city and country in Coburg to become what it once was:
A place of fine hospitality, the way you like it!
In the past five years, the Goldene Traube has been extensively renovated. Roughly 1.5 million euros were invested in the beautification and modernization of the hotel. For the first half of 2016, it is planned to expand the spa to approximately 380m² and to reopen it in the summer of 2016.
