Kleber Post


The eventful history of the Kleber Post is also a piece of German hotel history.

Today the Kleber Post is living proof of the connection between tradition and innovation in the art of hospitality.


The former restaurant “Beim Engel” developed into a gourmet location and traditional hotel over the centuries. From 1660 to 2001 the house was privately owned, in the last 188 years by the Kleber family. As a meeting point for high-ranking visitors and politicians, such as for example the author Ernst Jünger, various members of the literature group 47, François Mitterand and Helmut Kohl, the hotel Kleber Post became witness of important social and political occurrences.

After a hotel extension in the year 1995, the family Kleber had to give up the hotel in 2001. The town Bad Saulgau took the building over and ran it as a bed and breakfast hotel. Many interested parties failed in the take over, until the local family Reisch was awarded the contract for the acquisition and renovation in 2008.

In 2009 the Kleber Post was re-opened as 4 star hotel and restaurant in the heart of Bad Saulgau.

Artistic – The eye eats with it!

According to the credo "The average gives the world its substance, the exceptional its value“ (quote: Oscar Wilde) the traditional house was re-designed. Like a red string the theme "Baroque lifestyle meets design and art" winds its way through then new rooms. Contemporary art is a significant part of the furnishing concept and contributes to the special atmosphere. Enthusiasts find pictures by Gerold Miller, a wooden sculptor by Aron Demetz, participant of the Biennale Venice 2009, as well as photographic art by Sven Erik Klein and an etching cycle with 13 graphics by Markus Daum. The works of the Swiss Max Bill, the graphic artist Anton Stankowski and HAP Grieshaber, as well as the artist Willebrord Haas, Markise Glaser, Rose Sommer-Leopold and Daniel Kojo Schrade are also well worth mentioning.

The new construction presents itself in a contemporary robe and the guest rooms have been individually designed. Visitors stroll along pale natural stone and old parquet. Furniture in pear tree, specially designed carpets and carefully matched fabrics in warm colors create a cheerful and harmonic atmosphere. Crimson velvet, powerful shades of violet, leaf gold as well as lights by Louis Pulsen and design pieces by Promemoria, Florence Knoll and Donghia add noble touches.
