Hotel Hessigheim

Landhaus Müller – Hotel Garni

B&B - Hotel Hessigheim

Our hotel is ideally located in the Stuttgart region

We built our hotel in the heart of the village, just opposite the pittoresc half-timbered town hall, in the spirit of an old village house used by wine producers since 1564. We offer 5 very comfortable rooms as double or single rooms, a cosy breakfast room, Terrasse and Vinothek. Hessigheim is situated in the Stuttgart region between Ludwigsburg and Heilbronn, directly at the wine road of Württemberg and the Neckar valley bike trail. Our guests can park there cars and visit the region by walking or biking. People who love wine can enjoy our wines, by the bottle or the glas at the source in our Vinothek or court yard.

Bed and breakfast hotel in a wine village

Hessigheim with its vineyards is a wine village par excellence: one third of the territory (150 Hektar) is planted with vines, there are the few houses of only 2000 inhabitants and the rest is under nature protection. The view as a whole can fairly be called an idyll: without any industrial plant and suburbs, it is something like the opposite of a town. For visitors living in towns, Hessigheim offers a silent, non-urban retreat. Modern man can here be just himself. The village is located directly at the Neckar river and it is shaped by the river which meanders from Benningen through Lauffen along its curves. At the same time, Hessigheim is situated under the famous rocks of the Rock-Gardens which build a romantic scenery.

Two premier cru wine terroirs

The steep and terrassed vineyards of the Wurmberg extend under the Rock-Gardens towards Besigheim which is a nice village with many half-timber houses. On the other side of the central vineyards reaches the Bacchic amphitheater of the Käsberg to Mundelsheim: a steep and terrassed mountain, inclined towards south, with close to 500 stairs to be climbed by the wine maker from the river to the heights. Our village is located in between the two premier cru wine terrasses of the Wurmberg and the Käsberg. It appears a bit fallen out of today´s time; and yet feels our guest very quickly that there is a quasi revolutionary development ongoing: wine making is being completely newly invented. The big cooperative Felsengartenkellerei takes steps to retain wine growing on the steep terrasses, young wine makers build there own wineries, and our senior Herbert engages as well in the wine business: he is a partner and co-owner of winery Faschian, and ,together with other wine enthusiasts, he acquired vineyards in the steep terrasses. He is the managing partner of the group called Consortium Montis Casei ( derived from the latin name of the Käsberg). The group engages in the production of premium wines from the terrasses which must be taken care without any machines: just hand planting and picking.
