Many hotels claim to be in the heart of a city, but in the case of Cologne's Excelsior Hotel Ernst, it's truly the case. The property sits opposite the Cologne Cathedral, a stunning Gothic extravaganza and world heritage landmark that took some 600 years to build. Opened in 1863, the hotel has a long history as the city’s most luxurious hotel. The city’s best shopping is within walking distance and the fairgrounds are just across the Rhine river. Suites, each uniquely decorated with rich fabrics and vibrant colors, overlook the Cathedral. Taku, the Asian-restaurant, recently awarded “best international restaurant in Germany”, makes an ideal dining experience for business or leisure and draws guests and locals alike, while Hanse Stube, the hotel’s fine dining restaurant, offers contemporary French cuisine at its best.
