Alle Bewertungen über Pension Donatus

The history of the House

The house in the Niedere Burgstr. 3 is part of a complex consisting of seven estates. These buildings were elaborately renovated between 2005 and 2008. Today, 36 families, 2 restaurants and the Pension "Donatus" make up the so-called "Quartier 1".

The Pension Donatus is a very valuable patrician house of the Renaissance. Changes to the interior and modifications of the facade in the 17th century and a baroque transformation from 1737 characterize the image of the house permanently, which is composed of at least three previous houses.

Thanks to the pastor to Putzkau Donatus Lange, who was the owner of the house from 1556 to 1562, our guests can enjoy their breakfast in a room with a historic wood-beamed ceiling. The imprinted stroke on the painted wooden ceiling in the suite is descended from the New Testament: "The measure of our life is seventy years; and if through strength it may be eighty years, its pride is only trouble and sorrow." Today, people are surely of two minds about it. However, for us it is important to make your stay effortless, neither full nor busy.
