Family and hotel history

since 1989

Franz, Roland and Elisabeth are the second generation to run the hotel business in Zavelstein.

The history of the "Höhengasthof Lamm" goes back over 300 years and the Lamm has always been an institution in Zavelstein. Even Hermann Hesse liked to take a short hike from Calw to Zavelstein for the crocus blossom. We are quite sure that he also stopped here and enjoyed the unique view over the Teinach valley.


In January 2023, the hotel's own day care centre will open for our 7 "Mini-Berliners" and the children of our staff.
In addition, the carpeting in 15 rooms will be replaced with real wood parquet flooring this year. In the main building Hotel Lamm, all rooms are now equipped without carpeting. Our "Katharinenplaisire" will also receive a new modern design.
