Fronveste - Das alte Knasthaus

Meiningen, Thuringia, Germany

Welcome to the Stadt-gut-Hotel Fronveste - The old jailhouse!

What would they tell us if the thick stone walls, battlements and cells could tell us...? From a "place of discomfort" in former times a cosy pub "Verlies" with beer garden and a small free seat over the bleaching ditches fed by the Werra water has developed today. Here you can not only linger on Fridays and Saturdays from 9 p.m., but also (by arrangement) to music, not only Guinness, a good whisky or rum and more...

Furthermore, a separate cell wing awaits you for a rustic stay, where you can enjoy a gastronomic experience of a different kind with a hearty "prison dinner"! 

Near the Töpfemarkt, the oldest part of Meiningen, you will find modern rooms (cells) in the historic walls, which can be reached by lift. Not only for travel and bus groups as well as conferences - the house is also an ideal starting point for cyclists, individual guests or other occasions.  As a very special attraction, the "Monte Christo" - Skyline Restaurant awaits you from Mo.-So. above the roofs of Meiningen with its open kitchen in the guest room and the wonderful view of our city from the terrace. 

A visit to "M. Christo", "Verlies" or "Knastessen" in the cell wing will certainly make your stay in the Fronveste an unforgettable experience!


We look forward to your visit!

Your Jörg Krautwurst and the Fronveste Team
