Hotel Watthalden

Hotel Watthalden offers an enticing blend of history and modern facilities. The villa is a listed building dating from 1816. The impressive front building is home to the gourmet restaurant "Hartmaier’s" while Watt's Brasserie, with an attractive beer garden, is located in the rear building. The modern Hotel Watthalden lies to the side completing a harmonious triumvirate to suit all tastes and occasions. Hotel Watthalden lies at the heart of an old park just five minutes walk from the historic centre of the town of Ettlingen. Its 83 air conditioned rooms – from single rooms to junior suites – offer facilities that cater to every need.

Sportingly inclined guests can exercise in the Sky fitness room and then relax on the roof terrace with lounge. The historic rooms on the first floor of Villa Watthalden also provide a suitable venue for conferences and meetings.

Watt’s combines a brasserie, bar, cocktail bar and cafe. On fine summer days, the barbecue is lit outside in the beer garden while Sundays are "brunch days" until the afternoon.

In the villa, the Hartmaier family serves up gourmet cuisine with a reputation that extends far and wide. Guests have the choice between the elegant restaurant, the bistro and magnificent adjoining rooms for parties and celebrations of all kinds. There are also an inviting terrace and excellently stocked wine cellar.
