about us

Inventive - by tradition

Built in 1871, our city hotel "Roemer" reflects the history of the city and the region. For us, this is a mission to preserve and continue the traditions. Because those who build on tradition have a solid basis for pampering their guests with ideas, inspiration and plenty of quality.

We offer our guests dedicated hospitality, an individual and personalised welcome, quality accommodation and seasonally and regionally inspired cuisine.  Our staff are friendly and open-minded personalities. They are happy to respond to the wishes and concerns of our guests and thus gain their trust.

We run the Hotel Roemer with responsibility for people and the environment - with knowledge of our history, we look creatively to the future.

The "Roemer" has been closely linked to the history of the town of Merzig since it was built in 1871. For almost a century and a half, our house has welcomed visitors at the southern entrance to the town with a well-kept, solid appearance. 

On the occasion of our 125th anniversary in 1996, we have documented the period from the beginning in a historical outline. It reflects a piece of Merzig's industrial history. Numerous exhibits on display in the hotel demonstrate the close historical links.  We are constantly improving our Hotel Roemer in terms of our offer, service and facilities. Fundamental remodelling and extension work was carried out in 1994/95. In spring 2010, our restaurant was completely remodelled. It invites you in with its elegant, modern ambience and refined hospitality.

Our privileged location in the region, the optimal transport connections and our spacious facilities make us the ideal starting point for business trips and discovery tours in the border triangle as well as the perfect venue for business and private events.
