Günter Grass-Suite

Room description

“A graphic artist who also writes is someone who does not change the ink.”  (Günter Grass)

This room reflects unique charm of the historical building. It has high ceilings with wooden floors and lots of lovingly designed details.

One of the most important citizens of Lübeck in the recent past was the literary Nobel Prize Laureate Günter Grass. During his lifetime, Mr Grass was a frequent guest of the hotel and personally chose the most beautiful and largest room in the Klassik Altstadt Hotel to be named after him. His works as well as his ideas are displayed in this Maisonette Suite. The suite contains countless paintings and text-lines from his famous books. The historic windows, which go from the wooden panelled floor to the ceiling, allow the sunlight to flood the room, providing inspiration and relaxation. The Barrington armchair, with its footstool alongside a comfortable sofa, adds a stunning focal point to this room. It also provides a relaxing spot to settle down with a book, enjoy a cup of tea, or just to watch a bit of TV on a Sunday afternoon. There is a small fridge and a tea maker alongside a Nespresso coffee machine to make you feel at home.

It´s easy to imagine Mr Grass sitting in front of the fireplace enjoying a glass of his favourite Beaujolais whilst writing the script to his latest novel. We offer you these traditional red wines to taste for yourself. The labels of the bottles were decorated by Mr Grass himself with his own artistic designed emblems.

After a day spent exploring streets and squares, there is nothing like soaking in a free-standing bathtub or refreshing oneself under a rain shower. In the Günter Grass-Suite, you will appreciate this contemporary spacious bathroom with its natural texture on the tiles giving it a subtle Zen feel.

A comfortable king-size box-spring bed invites you to dream and relax in peace and quiet in the heart of the historic town of Lübeck. There is plenty of room for your belongings in the walk-in wardrobe. A white, elegant spiral staircase leads to a mezzanine with a queen-size bed. Enjoy the bird’s eye view over the rooftops of Lübeck through a porthole. Also look over the roofs towards the majestic gothic St. Mary´s Church (St. Marien-Kirche). It has always been a symbol of the power and prosperity of the old Hanseatic city, and is situated at the highest point of the island that forms the old town of Lübeck. It is part of the UNESCO World Heritage Site of the old Hanseatic City of Lübeck.
