This is one of the most unique hotels you will ever stay in! The history alone is so compelling but the hospitality and charm are equally over the top. Be sure to ask about the unique history of the zum Tuerken itself and things Frau Sharfenberg's family did in the run up to WWII to ensure it exists for all... More

Spent two nights at the Zum Turken in October of this year and had a wonderful time. Frau Scharfenburg was a gracious host and continues to offer visitors the same great experience that her late mother did. The view from the Turken is fantastic and it's surrounded by so much history on all sides. We could view the historic Eagles... More

There's no denying why people go there: the scenery and history. Combine that with fine German hospitality at Zum Tuerken and it's a perfect time away from everything since this place is a time capsule. Miss Scharfenberg now continues the tradition from her mother and you won't be disappointed. Reminder: please don't act like you're in the USA and respect... More

Takes you right back to the 40's, almost like you were part of the era of jack boots and nazis. This hotel was taken over by Hitler as his Berghoff was right down the road, and it was used to house his security people. The hotel is clean, comfortable and still run my the family that owned it before Hilter... More

Nothing changes at Zum Turken and yet nothing stays the same. Fantastik location, warm welcome, breathtaking view from the room, quite, history, cosyness. Downtown is only 3 km away if you need shopping, walking excursions, bus trips, You want culture? Salzbug is 20 car minutes, Bad Reichenal, Munich. Go there.

We loved this place! My boss recommended it after staying there a few years ago. It was exactly what we expected from his description...an historical experience in a charming place from yesteryear. It is not a luxary hotel and does not offer modern conveniences such as internet and TVs in the room, but the atmosphere is unlike any other place... More

Unfortunately I didn't know about the Hotel zum Türken before coming to the area, but I will definitely return to stay overnight. Although the Türken is a lot less comfortable than the next-door Interconti, it is preferable as the "real" experience of this historic place. Interesting discussions with the new "old lady" at the reception to the bunker (although the... More

This hotel is old, but it is extremely clean and decently maintained. The breakfast buffet was nice. We knew the age of the hotel when we booked it and booked because of the history associated with it. We would go back!

My family stayed at this hotel for the history. It was very interesting to know that the SS guards stayed here and that Hitler himself lived next door. You do not have to be a neo Nazi to appreciate the history. We are proud Americans and my father fought in WWII. But history is history. And we believe the place... More
