Just steps away from the famous Cologne Cathedral, you find hospitality at its best in the 5-star Excelsior Hotel Ernst. Being the only member of the “Leading Hotels of the World” in town the personalized service here is as legendary as the dining experience in its Michelin starred Restaurant “taku”. Family-owned since 1863, the Excelsior Hotel Ernst looks back on a long history as Cologne’s most luxurious hotel. The exposed position in the heart of the city opposite Cologne Cathedral, a world heritage landmark that took some 600 years to build, it is appreciated by business and leisure travelers alike.
