Historic Hotel Wilder Mann and Glass Museum

The historic Hotel Wilder Mann is located in a building opposite the Old Town Hall. The house was built in 1303. It is part of the complex, which includes a Glass Museum with the world's largest collection of exhibits. The hotel was established here in 1844, and it immediately attracted the attention of the German upper crust. The German and Austrian aristocracy, including persons of royal lineage liked to stay here. In particular, the legendary Sisi (Elisabeth of Bavaria) lived here in 1862 for eight days!

In 1900 the hotel was closed, but its global reconstruction started in 1979. Another three houses on the Town Hall Square were attached to the building. Now there is a hotel with historic rooms and a Glass Museum under one roof. The atmosphere of the hotel is preserved as much as possible, though with some amenities of modern life. It hosted such big-name guests as Mikhail Gorbachev, the last Bulgarian king Simeon II and Cardinal Joachim Meisner. The historic rooms still preserve the pieces of furniture which belonged to the King Ludwig of Bavaria and the Austrian Empresses Sissi and Charlotte. The hotel has simpler rooms as well. The price varies depending on the value of the room, its size and the number of museum exhibits. Some rooms, especially Sisi’s room, should be booked in advance as history is currently in a great demand.

The other two-thirds of the complex are occupied by the Glass Museum. It contains exhibits from the Baroque to the mid-twentieth century. The collection includes 30 thousand items, also from the well-known regions such as Silesia and Bohemia (now part of Poland and the Czech Republic). Who is unaware of the great Bohemian crystal? Here you can also find the samples of the far-off Rococo and the Biedermeier (ХIХ century), neo-classicism, art deco and modernism. There is a wide variety of items in the museum, from tiny souvenirs and toiletware to glasses, vases and whole panels. The museum was opened in 1985. Its collection is considered almost the most extensive in the world! In addition, the Wilder Mann complex contains the world's largest collection of cookbooks in German.
