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.

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. The Karl August is an individual hotel. For us, this also means consciously questioning the conventional and the familiar and daring to try something new. Therefore, we have decided, for example, to use only the refillable products of the Retterspitz brand in the rooms and to do without small disposable products.

We are pleased that our commitment has now been officially recognized: We are certified with the GreenSign label and have achieved over 80% on the sustainability baromter.
