Prominent visit 130 years ago in Jena

In the 19th century Otto von Bismarck was prince and chancellor of the German Empire. The popular statesman resided in our hotel “Schwarzer Bär” during his stay in Jena. Even today, you can travel back in time to the Empire in the Bismarck Room and look out over Jena from the balcony, like Bismarck.

On the occasion of the 130th anniversary of the spectacular visit, we invited you to celebrate with us. In addition to a finely composed 4-course Bismarck menu, we also designed a new edition of the historical festive newspaper for you. Come by and immerse yourself in history!

Reside like the chancellor

For a journey into the past we recommend a night in our historic Bismarck room. Step out onto the balcony and look out over Jena – just like Bismarck himself did 130 years ago.
