About this listing
The guestroom offers you low-priced accommodation in one of the nicest parts of Wittenberg.
The courtyard and the surrounding buildings are located in a small road called Pfaffengasse, just 100 yards away from the castle church in the city centre.
Spend the night at the craftsman’s courtyard in the old town of Wittenberg
The double room is at the first floor of a building which was built in 1895. Up to the 1920s it was used by a blacksmith. The building was renovated with a lot of attention to historical detail and has been used for living purposes again since 2005.
The back of the house is built on the old city walls. It is situated in a quiet part of town and from the window you have a beautiful view of the park. From the window facing the courtyard you also have a view of the workshop for historic musical instruments.
In the workshop stringed musical instruments from the Renaissance and the Baroque period are made by skilful craftsman.
On the ground floor of the building there is a small café and a coffeeroastery.
If ordered in advance you can book a guided tour of the workshop, or you can have a look into the procedure of roasting coffee beans. From the courtyard you can enjoy the view of the panorama of the castle church of Wittenberg.
The guestroom has been listed on the nationwide Bed&Bike register for bicyclefriendly accommodation since 2012. There is a big bicycleshed on the yard and the gate to he yard is closed over night. You can also rent a bike in the cycleshop over the road.
The guestroom offers space for one to two people.

The guestroom offers a good double bed and mattress, also two chairs and a table, wardrope, sideboard, satelite TV and WLAN. The bathroom is right next to the guestroom. The big an friendly kitchen is open to guest and friends.
Interaction with guests
I do prepare the common breakfast. Guests can have a look into the workshop or book a tour through the workshop for historical music instruments in advance.
I like the brilliant view onto the castle church and the little café in the courtyard. It's only 400 yards to the historic market spare. Wittenberg is about 20 km away from the motorway A9 and it is only an hour to Berlin and Leipzig and about two hours to Dresden.
The main station is 1,5 km away and the 'Altstadtbahnhof' only about 500 yards. The next parkingspace is only 50 yards from the house. The guestroom is almost next to the Elbe Cycle Route (D-Route 10),
the Europe Cycle Route R1 (D-Route 3) and the Cycle Route Berlin – Leipzig.
You can get here easily by bike, car or train.
Other things to note
I've got a dog, called Finn. He is a small hunting dog and he lives in the house as well. He would love the visit of any female dogs, but it would be advisible to leave any other pets at home.
No smoking in the house!!!!!
