Zur Alten Stadtmauer

My favorite Colditz hotel is a small, friendly one in the oldest part of town called Zur Alten Stadtmauer (At the Old Town Wall), at Am Graben 5. The manager is Ralf Gorny, a very pleasant man who speaks excellent English and is very knowledgeable about the history of the castle.

The hotel is a two-story building only a few blocks from the castle and two blocks from the main square. The hotel is comfortable and homey with an old-fashioned charm. Ralf has a library stocked with books on Colditz and is ready to answer questions and offer suggestions about things to do and see. They serve a yummy (and substantial) breakfast buffet which is included and the rooms are reasonably priced. I really enjoyed staying there and highly recommend it!

You can make reservations via phone: 0049 034381-53363 or e-mail: Their website: Colditz Travel

I have marked the location of the hotel on the Colditz town map on the travel to Colditz page, as well as the map below. Address: Am Graben 5, Colditz.


Another of the Colditz hotels is the Waldhaus, a small, older hotel on edge of town at Lausicker Strasse 60. The hotel is not within walking distance of the castle, so you would need to have a car or get a taxi. Taxis are available locally. For more information, check the website: Telephone: 49 034381-43371.

Colditz Youth Hostel

In April 2007, a Colditz Youth Hostel was built in one wing of the castle (where the German garrison was located). The facilities are very modern and you don't have to be a "youth" to stay there.

The Youth Hostel has 34 rooms, and rates include breakfast. Open 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. year round.

Rooms can be booked online at Youth Hostel or reached via e-mail at or tel: 49 34381-45010.

Sonnenhof B & B

In the small town of Zchirla, just 2 km from Colditz, Sylke Friedrich runs a pretty bed and breakfast called Sonnenhof. She speaks fluent English and French, and used to be a guide to the castle, so can help visitors with their questions. She works from home and is available to drive guests to and from Colditz for € 7.

For room rates and photos, or to book a room, see At Meuselwitzer Weg 3.

Parkhotel Muldental

A very pretty, elegant, and reasonably-priced hotel just outside of Colditz, in an attractive rural setting.
