Hotel Goldener Anker - Tradition - Historic Guest Book

The guest book of our hotel seems to be a list of names epitomizing the German cultural and intellectual history.
Prominent persons and travellers pretending to a certain standing dropped here the anchor to enjoy the conveniences of the stylish house, which became already at the end of the 19th century the most prestigious hotel in town.
The guests list includes flamboyant personalities from Richard Wagner to Richard Strauss, from Thomas Mann to Gerhart Hauptmann, from Toscanini to Herbert von Karajan, from Agatha Christie to Günther Grass and from Loriot to Hape Kerkeling and Wim Wenders. Even the great Mark Twain recognized immediately the assets of the Hotel “Goldener Anker”, when he visited Bayreuth in 1891. He remarked that it was a fine place for dining before adding disenchanted: “No, what I want to say is that I can watch here the others having a fine meal”. Well, he had hoped to find a free table in the restaurant of the Hotel “Goldener Anker” just in the festival period.
