A Neighborhood Hotel

Nuremberg is like a bright spark on the timeline of history. Historically beautiful and forever full of ideas. Dreamy, but always pioneering. Between the walls of the Old Town, life unfolds with effortless ease. Here in the very heart of Europe, the silhouette of the medieval castle towers over a future full of innovation and inspiration.

Concept stores and traditional crafts, artisan bakeries and florists, hip DJ sounds, craft beer and hearty cuisine… all the things that make Nuremberg so special are here to discover in and around the Karl August. Neighbours become partners, hotel guests become explorers. In a place that fuses the spirit of the city with the vibes of its visitors.

The Karl August and Augustinerhof represent an urban hotel concept. Doors wide open. Local people sharing our space. Guests welcome everywhere, living the city like residents. Genuine, authentic, just where you want to be. In the heart of Nuremberg, in a neighbourhood that’s about exchanging ideas and coming together.

Karl August


To the heart of the city

Small shops and attractive stores, in the middle of a vibrant Old Town full of the charm of past centuries. The Karl August is a fascinating place – just a stone’s throw from the Market Square and the most famous Christmas Market in the world.


Close to heaven

High up in the Karl August, an oasis to relax and unwind. This is where you’ll find the gym and spa area. Perfect for switching off, taking a sauna and feeling good, with a skyfinity pool that reaches for the heavens through metre-high skylights.

Our mission for the Karl August

Living sustainability is crucial for us. As for example with our “Mugge-Bank”. This seating furniture consists of as few raw materials as possible and all materials come from the region. Regionality but also seasonality plays an important role in the selection of products for breakfast. And in the rooms you will find our high-quality Retterspitz products in 1-liter bottles. These are refillable and we avoid unnecessary plastic waste. We could list many more smaller & larger examples. Therefore, our next step is the official certification as a GreenSign Hotel in 2024.
