Monumental hospitality

Meisenheimer Hof

The tiny village of Meisenheim has been left unscathed by Europe’s conflicts, and the historic buildings are beautifully preserved. This wine hotel in Baroque style has been welcoming guests since 1699. A number of comfortable guestrooms are named after famous local vineyards or historical figures who have played a role in Meisenheim’s history. The bar in the atmospheric vaulted cellar, serving a wide selection of gins, tonics and whiskies, is well worth a visit. Chef and host Markus Pape, a Jeunes Restaurateur member, remains down-to-earth despite having spent years learning from the best chefs in the country. You can follow one of his cookery courses at Kochhaus Nicolas Appert. Café Meisentörtchen serves its own delicious house-made patisserie.

Heart of the house

Restaurant Meisenheimer Hof

The kitchen is the heart of the hotel. Chef and Host Markus Pape and his team’s menu offer regional, international and vegetarian dishes. Mr Pape spent years learning from the best chefs in the country before he became Chef in Meisenheimer Hof. Whenever possible, Chef Pape sources everything locally, changing with the seasons. He combines classic techniques with the latest trends in cooking. His dishes are subtly in tune with each other. At the end of the evening, the Chef usually ambles over to hear your views on his cuisine.
