Ernest & Allison Kraft

Le Gourmet

An ambitious modern gourmet kitchen in Heidelberg, awarded with a Michelin star and 17 points in the Gault Millau.


Here you can enjoy our seasonal cuisine and culinary selection of regional dishes, with classic and traditional foods you'll love.


Let yourself fall into plush and luxurious fabrics. The thickest carpets of this world and sinfully cuddly Auping beds for the deepest dreams are your new comfort zone.
We are convinced romantics and therefore the thought of an ephemeral, run-of-the-mill mainstream hotel design, makes us cringe. Consequently, we aim to provide a romantic hotel concept, as well as an individually appointed hotel suite design in an English country house style. Always different and never the same – a nostalgic fusion that Jane Austen would have loved.


The day is yours! Undoubtedly, with our served butler breakfast and elaborate homemade delicacies, that you won't find even at the biggest breakfast buffets. A uniquely special morning awakening, that you won't want to miss.

A hotel between the worlds

Close to the Old Town of Heidelberg, yet quietly located in the Neuenheimer Villenviertel at the foot of the Heiligenberg, you can finally relax from everyday life. Is there a forest in the middle of the city?
