The first mention of our hotel dates from the 15th century under the name ‘Den Rooden Leeuw’ (The Red Lion). In earlier times weary merchants and travelers came to rest. On one of his many tours Napoleon even honored our hotel with a visit. Around 1880 the name was therefore changed to Hotel de l’Empereur: Hotel of the Emperor.
Since 1934 the hotel is owned by the Pappers family. We strive to create a relaxed homelike atmosphere for our guests. A pleasant place to stay.
