For more than 120 years, this traditional family business has been passed on from generation to generation. The hotel consists of a new building constructed in 2007, which is connected to the historic main building by a glass passageway. All rooms shine with an enchanting panoramic view over the Osternoher Tal as well as over the ski slopes. You have the choice between modern rooms or rooms furnished with comfortable farmhouse furniture. In the restaurant the chef offers regional specialities - whether sour dip, homemade Kaiserschmarrn, Schäufele or Franconian carp blue from Diepoltsdorf - the dishes are freshly prepared every day. The hotel also offers three conference rooms and a large hall for meetings and celebrations. The hoteliers take care of decoration, catering, accommodation and of course individual wishes. There is room for up to 220 guests.

The hotel and restaurant is situated high up on the castle hill, next to a dreamy castle ruin, with a panoramic view over the Easternohe Valley. Located in the heart of Franconia, the Igelwirt is an ideal starting point for numerous excursions. Countless hiking trails start here.
On the Schlossberg itself, skiing enthusiasts can use the Osternohe ski slope in winter. Less than 500 metres from the Igelwirt is the "longest lift facility in Middle Franconia". Cross-country skiing and snowshoe hikes are also possible. In addition, numerous thermal baths and spas invite you to take a relaxing feel-good trip.
Business guests can easily reach the nearby Nuremberg Trade Fair, the main railway station and the airport via the A9 motorway. In the nature park "Fränkische Schweiz-Veldensteiner Forst", about 30 minutes by car, especially nature lovers get their money's worth. Golf lovers need only 15 minutes by car to the nearby Gerhelm Golf Course.
There is even an archaeological trail for young and old explorers in the area. But also leisure parks like the "Fränkische Wunderland" or the "Playmobil Funpark" are popular destinations for families.
