Hotel Ritter Jörg’s history is inextricably linked with that of the Sommerhausen municipality. Its name is a reference to the historic Knight Jörg from the Counts von Rechteren-Limpurg-Speckfeld. To honour his commitment to enforcing market law, the Jörgenbrunnen was built in 1574. This fountain can still be found today immediately in front of our hotel. The property itself has been run since the 15th century as "Holzhäuser’sche Wirtschaft Zum Bären" and later under the name of "Zum Löwen". It received the name "Ritter Jörg" after it was converted and reopened in 1981.
The historic hotel has fulfilled a host of different functions in its eventful past. The buildings also served as military camps in the turmoil between the 17th and 19th centuries. During the Thirty Years’ War, legend has it that even the Swedish monarchs spent the night here. The stopping place for the stage coach, which was set up in 1792, was the inspiration for our little post room. In 2019, the hotel changed hands and was extensively renovated and modernised. The acquisition of the restaurant by Gianni Mentolo and his family and team marks a new chapter for our hotel and we are proud to be part of it.
Our location in the tranquil Main Valley, just 12.7 km south of Würzburg, offers an abundance of magnificent nature and historic towns. You can get here quickly and easily via the A3 Frankfurt-Nuremberg motorway. The wonderful nature between vineyards and fruit trees is an attractive place for sporting activities. Rich culture and numerous events delight residents and visitors to the town alike. Fans of Franconian wines can meet on guided tours through the surrounding wineries and informal wine-tastings.
