The hotel Das Schiff boasts one of the richest traditions of any establishment in Bregenzerwald. The Metzler family has treated guests here to outstanding service since 1840. During its long tenure, the Schiff has consistently changed and adapted to the times. With style and elegance, the 4-star hotel offers quality at the highest level – you’ll sense the difference in our ambience and experience it in our service.
Known far and wide for its outstanding cuisine and recognised for quality by gourmet food guides, the staff led by Erna Metzler, the mother of current chef Hans Peter and his sister Elisabeth, have earned their sterling reputation. As a self-taught chef, Erna Metzler has succeeded in combining regional cuisine with modern and international influences. Bernd Reimer is now continuing the foundation she has laid. In Das Schiff, guests dine in rustic Bregenzerwald parlours, in the modern hotel restaurant or in “Ernele,” the timbre architecture pub & shop that was constructed in the hotel addition in modern Bregenzerwald timber architecture.
Stay & relax
The rooms and suites at the Schiff are spacious and the newly renovated rooms feature high-quality wooden furniture fashioned from choice raw materials by Bregenzerwald craftsmen. The wellness area, with its year-round heated indoor and outdoor pools, is the perfect place to kick back and relax. In the “Badestube” bath house there is a Finnish sauna, an organic sauna with changing lights, a brine steam bath and an infrared cabin. To recover your strength, look no further than the garden sauna and an herbal steam bath. The spa also offers massages, healthy therapies in the soft-pack lounger and cosmetic treatments.
