We are situated in the village of Wartburg, 30 km from Pietermaritzburg in the Kwa-Zulu Natal Midlands. The hotel is the main feature in the picturesque village of Wartburg, surrounded by rolling hills of sugar cane, maize and timber. Seventy percent of the community still speak German, a piece of Germany in South Africa.

Wartburg was established by German missionaries in 1881. The Wartburger Hof was built in 1984, and bought by Siggie, and Ingrid Schadle in 1991. Siggie and Ingrid experienced 30 years in the hotel and restaurant industry since their immigration to South Afica. Their son Chris, has absolved a German Hotel Diploma and is managing the family business now.
