Since 1936

Since 1936, the “Klosterhof”, directly at the old Carmelite monastery, has been a hearty place to fry and cook according to the old custom. In the beautiful wood-panelled ambience, you can enjoy a freshly tapped “Klosterhof Naturtrüb”, a “Schwarzbier” or a fresh glass of Rheingauer Riesling and relax in a very cosy atmosphere.

Even after the meal, the “good monk” does not leave your side. A number of monastery liquors and liqueurs from Andechs, Furth or St. Gilgen ensure a feeling of well-being after the meal.

Linus Müller 1936

At the entrance to Seckbacher Gasse 14, in the same place as today. Founded in 1936 by Linus Müller as “Klosterhöfchen”, one of the few apple wine taverns “Hibbdebach”, i. e. north of the river Main. Most of the apple wine farms are still located almost all of them on the Sachsenhausen side, i. e.”Dribbdebach”, south of the river Main. The immediate vicinity of the historical Carmelite monastery obviously helped to find the name. With the opening of the brewery of the first barrel of “Binding Römer Pils” in 1939, freshly tapped beer was also offered in the “Klosterhöfchen” – contrary to the Frankfurt tradition of holding only bottled beer in apple wine taverns. The clientele responded positively, and the close business relationship with Frankfurt’s largest beer brewer, which has continued to this day, had begun.

Here, in fact, it has been served again

After the destruction of the war, Otto Baier took over the economy and built the still existing house in the Seckbächergasse/corner of Weißfrauenstraße from the ruins. In the post-war years, the new building was even converted into a hotel/pension.

A touch of world history in seconds

On 25 June 1963, John F. Kennedy, Ludwig Erhard and the former Prime Minister of Hesse, Georg August Zinn, passed by the monastery courtyard on their way from the Römer in the direction of the main station. In the picture you can even read the name above the still existing entrance.

Historical roots with reference to monastic life

After many turns of the 70s and 80s, in 1998 Uta and Andreas Carl took over the inn, now called “Klosterhof”. Refocusing on the roots of the historical environment, a careful reference to monastic life was created. Close links to the active Benedictine monastery “Gut Aich” in St. Gilgen, helped us to find appealing recipes and to provide our guests with extraordinary products from monasteries.
