Committed to tradition...

Today's Schwanen guesthouse/restaurant is run by the 5th generation of our family. Our great- great grandparents, Friedrich and Magdalena Baldner, bought the guesthouse in the Hauptstrasse in 1880. The present hotel was built on the same spot after the original was destroyed in the second World war, and we have tried to restore its original charm and character through extensive rebuilding and renovation. We think we have succeeded. In addition, our ancestor, Daniel Baldner is documented in the oldest church records in Kehl-Bodersweier as an innkeeper as far back as 1690....

Useful regional websites: 

Kehl am Rhein is an ideal base for glorious day trips to many popular places in the Black Forest and the Vosges mountains. The excellent bus services into the charming old town of Strasbourg only take about 10 minutes.
In Kehl and the local area there is always something interesting on offer all year round and we are pleased to offer suggestions for all kinds of outings.
