Welcome to the Buntes Haus Seiffen – Hotel Erbgericht! 


The Hotel Buntes Haus is the oldest hotel in Seiffen. It was founded 480 years ago as a inheritance court. Originally court processes took place here – with the judge also being a fully licensed innkeeper at the same time! A tradition that was handed over from generation to generation. And so it happened that Seiffen residents have been gathering within these venerable walls for hundreds of years. The 1920’s an increasing number of summer visitors and winter athletes discovered this beautiful health resort. The buses stopped right up in front of the probate hotel court – and the guests loved to stay here. Even today, all vacationers take benefit of the hotel’s central location at the heart of this resort town. The Hotel Buntes Haus is still a popular meeting place for residents and visitors from near and far – you never know whom in the world you’ll meet here.

Traditional Restaurant Buntes Haus



A first-class cuisine is the gastronomic flagship of the restaurants at the Buntes Haus – no wonder as hotel owner Ronny Weiß as a trained chef learned the trade from the scrotch. His successes he earned in international top hotels and restaurants. – as well as his head chef. The kitchen team attaches great importance to a fresh cuisine: ‘In our kitchen we tap every schnitzel ourselves. Listen to the typical hammering sound that will tell you, that everything is freshly prepared. Every day we get delivered with all the fresh ingredients.’

Our Opening Hours: daily from 7.00 a.m. till 9.00 p.m. (kitchen from 12 noon until 8.30 p.m.)

In der Vorweihnachtszeit waren direkt vor dem Hotel ein Glühweinstand und Imbissstände aufgebaut. Somit sind wir direkt aus der Haustür in den Weihnachtstrubel gekommen.
