The Beer Culture Hotel Schwanen with its restaurant and brewery is located in a quiet corner of Ehingen, a Swabian city with great beer culture city amidst Baroque splendor. Its architecture, beer and its one-of-a-kind “beer crate rooms” give it a special and unique flair. It only makes sense that their motto is, ‘Here you sleep in beer.’ The surrounding area is definitely worth a visit, as well. Bikers and hikers love exploring the nearby biosphere reserve ‘The Swabian Alps’ and also visiting the magnificent fortresses, monasteries and museums in the area.
Monday to Saturday from 11 AM until 2 PM and from 5 PM until 11 PM
Monday to Sunday from 6:00 AM to 11:00 PM
