Once upon a time there was a small inn
nestled in the very heart of Beilngries.
The Gams Hotel is steeped in hospitality tradition. It has been owned by our family for more than 200 years. Browsing through the archives of the town of Beilngries in search of the origins of the Gams Hotel, you can find a description of the property dating back to 1644. Referring to the site where now stands the hotel building, the document states a property owned by Michael Höll, a beer brewer. In 1794, the ownership of the inn was transferred to the Leidl Family along with a planning permission. Until today, their descendants have kept control over the destiny of the Gams Hotel.
Since then, a lot of things have changed… In 1969, a café was built to complement the restaurant. Eduard Liebscher extended the building in 1977 and had a nearby seminar centre built in 1980, which is now called “Kreativhaus”. In 2014, the ancient smithy next to the hotel was converted into a guest house to expand the facilities and accommodation options. With much attention to detail, a stylish event location and 7 distinctively decorated themed rooms have been created there. Today, the Gams offers every comfort you would expect from a 4 star hotel in 60 tastefully furnished bedrooms and apartments as well as 11 meeting rooms varying in size from 25 to 170 square metres.
More than 200 years of family tradition
However, there is one thing that has not changed over the years. The homely and intimate atmosphere and the warm-heartedness with which the Liebscher Family and their obliging team look after the guests. This makes our hotel a quite special place, which is arguably best described by the word “Cosiness”, implying familiarity, a feeling of security and homeliness. This is what awaits you at the Gams. The cheerful smile in the face of the staff will make you feel welcome when stepping in. And soon you will really feel at home.
The Gams Hotel is a real home away from home, nestling in one of the largest nature parks in Germany – the “Altmühltal” Valley. It is a marvellous place to spend time with the family, friends or colleagues. To recover from the sometimes strenuous daily life. To enjoy together the natural scenery and explore the local history. To discover historic Roman and Celtic sites during a bicycle ride. To walk across wild flower meadows in bloom and to visit awesome castles and monasteries. To paddle leisurely in the canoe on the slow moving River “Altmühl”. The surroundings provide endless opportunities for an amazing stay in one of the most multifaceted holiday regions in Germany.
