The Altstadthotel Grauer Wolf

Open-hearted by tradition, sustainable and regional! That’s what we stand for!

In the meantime in 2nd generation we are hosts with passion! With us you check in with friends. You will feel at home in one of our 40 rooms, be pampered with regional products for breakfast and get the best tips in and around Erlangen. Have you ever thought about a cycling holiday? It is not only Erlangen itself that can be easily explored from our hotel, but also Franconian Switzerland in a day trip. Sustainability is one of our core values. For this reason, we have made it our business to accommodate cycling enthusiasts and their bikes equally well.

Apart from free Wi-Fi, we have an additional service: our Gastfreund app. Everything you need to know in a hurry can be found here. However, this should not replace personal contact. In Erlangen, we are “open by tradition” and are already looking forward to welcoming you! See you soon at the Altstadthotel Grauer Wolf!

Our rooms

We offer 40 guest rooms, which are spread over three buildings. All of our rooms are individually furnished and guarantee a comfortable and pleasant stay in our Franconian metropolitan region. Our standard rooms have a size of 15-18 square meters. The comfortable box spring beds promise a good night’s sleep. For the most part, our larger comfort rooms are situated in a quiet location facing the inner courtyard. These two categories combine the timeless with the modern. If you are still undecided about a room, you can find more information here.


Until now we only cater for our hotel guests with breakfast, packed lunches or a piece of cake and coffee in the afternoon. Soon, however, people of Erlangen will also be able to enjoy this. Our gastronomic offer is still under construction. Above all, we are looking forward to the reopening of our restaurant. Our chef combines regional and seasonal products into delicious new creations. Our selection of Franconian beers and wines rounds off the offer. As soon as we have more information, you will find it here.
