Faehrhaus Meissen B&B
The art of living
Welcome to a beautiful corner of the world!
Meissen is a very special place. Nestled into the sun-drenched Elbe Valley, the town boasts a unique heritage – one rich in history and steeped in old-world craftsmanship. For 300 years the town has been famous for its beautiful, world-renowned Meissen porcelain.
Here, on the shores of the river Elbe with a stunning view of the mighty Albrecht Castle and Meissen Cathedral, we have found the perfect place for our small, family-run guesthouse. We consider it, in fact, the traditional B&B re-invented.
Built in 1816, the historic building initially served as a ferryman’s house and played an important role in the town’s history. Today, the adjacent guesthouse combines old-world hospitality with colourful and eclectic interior design. It is a place where comfort and cosiness meet design, art and modern living.
We hope to see you when you feel like having a private retreat or a short break, and we look forward to making your stay in Meissen and the Dresden area a memorable one.
Christine and Fedder-Christian Paulsen
Throughout the house you will find more than a thousand pieces of artwork by Fedder Paulsen. Whether it be the vibrantly hand-painted tiles in the bathrooms, the abundant floral paintings or the lovingly decorated porcelain pieces – they all pay tribute to Fedder’s love of flowers and nature. Each piece has thoughtfully been chosen to make every room a unique masterpiece. All rooms are equipped with high-quality boxspring beds and hand-carved Gustavian furniture. Bespoke English fabrics in an exciting range of colours by Designers Guild and design classics such as Vitra chairs and Gubi and George Nelson lamps complete the look of contemporary design and individual style.
All rooms feature a flatscreen TV and direct dial phone. All include a private bathroom equipped with exclusive MOLTON BROWN amenities.
In addition, complimentary coffee and a fine selection of high-class SAMOVA teas are available 24/7 in our pantry kitchen.
Two rooms are at ground level and readily accessible by wheelchair. They both have direct access to the green patio and feature an additional private patio. One of these rooms has a special wheelchair-friendly interior.
Onsite parking is available.
