2. Hotel am Rathaus 3* – Hotels Near Augsburg Christmas Market

Hotel am Rathaus

Enjoying a privileged location directly next to Augsburg’s beautiful town hall, this modern hotel is an ideal base tourists and business travellers alike.

Look forward to the privately run hotel’s comfortable amenities and friendly service. The city’s charming Old Town with its Fuggerei district and striking cathedral are all within easy walking distance. Look forward to stimulating theatres, museums and the pedestrian area’s tempting shopping opportunities and entertainment venues.

A buffet breakfast is served in a simple dining area. Other amenities include a lounge and a low-key lobby bar. Underground parking is available. Pets are welcome for an additional fee.

We chose this hotel to be within walking distance to the Christmas Market.

Our room was functional. It was plain without any wall decorations. All of the expected amenities were there but in a compact layout. The breakfast was excellent! The hotel was kept very clean!!

The Hotel am Rathaus is in an ultra-central location.

The building is completely renovated and modernized (as most German cities can show buildings 200+ years old, if not flattened during WWII), architecturally quirky little pensions and hotels/B+B’s that have been updated to a good standard and level of comfort.

The rooms are tiny but they have all amenities one can hope for and even the tiny bathroom is so cleverly designed that space, or lack thereof, becomes a non-issue. The beds are super-comfy and the linen white-white and crisp.

There’s even a good sized “refridgerette” in the room – an unusual encounter even on an international budget chain level a very hard to find item these days, but hey – Germany has a reputation for coming up with thoughtful design in terms of usability plus esthetics for the eye.

The breakfast buffet is laden with a wholesome, tasty, fresh and substantial range that can easily stand up next to any gourmet Intercon buffet at a fraction of the price.

Overall, I loved the Hotel am Rathaus for its excellent value and uncomplicated, warm and friendly staff.

The bed was very comfortable, the climate control easy to operate, and the in room safe easily accessed. We heard zero guest or traffic noise when we cut the lights out to sleep.

The breakfast buffet was outstanding. Very extensive, high quality meats, fish, cheeses, sausages,speck, breads, fruit, juices, jellies and marmalades, breads, and wonderful coffee (many options for types of wonderful coffee). There were cooks assembling trays to replace dishes as they began to run low.

One very nice lady cooked eggs anyway you wanted them. Even with options for omelets, Eggs Benedict, and too many options to name. I really enjoyed the Weisswurst with sweet mustard and pretzels.

The employees working during breakfast were pleasant, hard working, and took care of everyone’s needs. Plates were cleared quickly and refills on coffee appeared almost seamlessly. Just an outstanding way to start the day.

The location afforded us easy access to the transportation center, just a few blocks away.

We used the trams and buses to see much more of Augsburg.

In short, the Hotel Maximilian’s was a standout during our vacation in Austria and Germany. Augsburg is beautiful and everyone we met was very friendly.

The varied architecture in its center includes medieval guild houses, the 11th-century St. Mary’s cathedral and the onion-domed Sankt Ulrich und Afra abbey.

Key Renaissance buildings are the Augsburger Town Hall with its Golden Hall. With the magic atmosphere during the Christmas Market season, Augsburg stood out as one of our favorite cities.

We visited the small Christmas Market at the Center City Galleria.

This is the very best hotel that we have stayed in Germany. We recently returned from visiting several Christmas Markets and this hotel and the Augsburg Christmas Market was simply the best.

The hotel is lovely, gracious with welcoming service and is just 2 blocks from the Christmas Market and the shopping area of Augsburg.

We also enjoyed a light breakfast at a lovely small bakery just down the street. Ideal hotel location, parking ($15) in back of the hotel, and an easy walk to the Christmas Market.
