Dear guests,

We give you a warm welcome in our Hotel Ochsen in Merklingen. We hope you feel at ease with our hotel and our restaurants and wish you a pleasant stay.

Since 2006 Andreas and Michael Hintz are leading the hotel. Now, additional guest rooms and restaurants, a beautiful festival room and several conference rooms with new technical facilities offer a comfortable stay for our guests. In the former horse stable we established a cosy bar, very much appreciated by smokers and non-smokers.

Business people and travellers alike appreciate the convenient traffic connection of Merklingen to the Autobahn (A8) Stuttgart − Munich.

We look forward to your visit
Your host-family Hintz

Thank-You Letter

"Dear Mr Hintz,
„Wie schön und angenehm ist es wenn Brüder einträchtig miteinander leben“.
You have been a true brother for us when we came to your hotel with our wet tent and all our wet stuff. 
Your hotel was like a save haven. After our visit we felt re-energized to continue our holiday.
We want to thank you for that. God bless ...“


"Very comfortable hotel, big rooms, comfortable beds, an excellent nights sleep and an excellent breakfast was just what we needed after a long day's drive. With 2 teenage kids and driving all day, we were all exhausted and needed space and a good nights sleep, well, the kids wanted good WiFi as most of the hotels were not so good. Ochsen was a gem of a place, a modern, boutique, family run hotel with very generous rooms. We needed a 2 room family suite, which was excellent, well priced and the staff was very helpful."

"Super friendly, competent staff. Sparkling clean room. Nice restaurant with good food. Great way the hotel has developed an old building. Close to the autobahn. Perfect for an overnight stop."

"A top quality lovely family run hotel. Excellent room and service - very pleasant and professional staff. Would happily return to this hotel for a longer stay."

"Modern, bright hotel with an excellent restaurant. Staff were helpful too. Aircon in room worked."

"Good location for travellers using the A8 autobahn. Staff very attentive and food in the restaurant was excellent."

"Friendly staff, nice rooms and excellent restaurant. Good value for money."

"Location, room, restaurant and food. Could not ask for much more."
