Tradition is important to us. Due to this reason we have been indulged our guests for over 500 years. Since 1501 our house has been run by family. In the past also a post station, an own brewery and a regional- wide known farm belonged to our house. They were quitted over the last years. Due to the historical trade route between Ulm and the Lake of Constance the Landgasthof zum Adler has always been felt very closed to travellers and discovers in Upper Swabia.
We have been a comfortable host for pilgrims over hundreds of years because our country inn is next to the Way of St. James, wherefore we have gained a lot of experience. For this reason, your nice stay in our region is made possible by us and we will fortify you for your walk.
In modern age our region got many fantastic cycle paths. Enjoy the Swabian summer with your family and friends by cycle or with your darling and your loved vintage car while driving across the most beautiful part of Upper Swabia, the “Ländle”.
The village Äpfingen is next to the “Öchsle” – the last part of the historical Swabian railway – as well. The steam locomotive is open from May to October and drives between the former monastery Ochsenhausen and the former Free Imperial City of Biberach an der Riß. Stop in Äpfingen, visit the village church and the historical elementary schoolhouse and let be fortify yourself by us before you go on your trip through our beautiful country.
Things and names have been changed over the years. But tradition has maintained till now. The proud descents of the famous merchant family “von Bank” or the former noble family “von Wegnern” were reason for our family to be a tribute to our name. After 500 years we still try to do everything to create you a pleasant stay in our house. All experiences of the last centuries let us fortify our guest like earls and barons of the past.
