Hotel Maximilian’s was constructed between the 14th and 17th centuries, in which novel approaches to art and science spread throughout Europe.

The earliest known record of Hotel Maximilian’s dates to the Late Middle Ages, when the building made its grand debut along Augsburg’s Maximilianstraße in 1377. But the hotel grew to local fame a century later when a group of Abyssinian monks arrived in the city during the winter of 1495. They had walked to Augsburg as part of a long pilgrimage through Europe. While everyone else turned the monks away, the innkeeper of Hotel Maximilian’s gave them shelter. When the monks left the following spring, they supposedly had their portraits painted on a board placed just outside the inn. Over the course of the 18th and 19th centuries, the Drei Mohren Hotel quickly emerged as a popular retreat for the continent’s leading monarchs, aristocrats, and intellectuals.

Today, Hotel Maximilian’s offers 132 uniquely furnished guestrooms with luxurious details.
