Golden rooves, colourful ceilings and luxurious Noveau Art
In the 1920s, Kirschau, which is mentioned in an official document for the first time in 1352, was one of the pivotal points of the the textile industry. The small village within the Lusatian hills developed a significant industry for coarse yarns in the middle of the 19th century. At first mainly packing canvas and floorcloth were produced.
At the turn of the century, it was colourful blankets that led to a further economic boost for the already flourishing industry. This boom in business was also due to the wealth of the citizents: Kirschau was known as the village with the golden rooves for a long time. A beautiful village center and many magnificient mansions were built during that time. Well-off weavers and industrialists settled in the village and often had to accommodate merchants from around the world.
In order to offer them a befitting place to stay, the well-known architect Max Hans Kühne was entrusted to built a guest house. Kühne, who aso built Hotel Astoria in Leipzig, realised a model building at the close of the Art Noveau period. It was known as exclusive guest and hoiday home for a long time and was used in the GDR-period as a company home and accomodation. After the fall of the Berlin Wall it lay waiting for seven years to meet it’s new owners: Rüdiger and Petra Schumann. The man from Hessen and the woman from Stuttgart acquired the building in 1996 and invested love, time and money into the restoration. In 1998, the building could finally reveal its new shine and was re-opened as romantic luxury hotel Weber.
The hotel is now named after its owners and complemented by a magnificient beauty and wellness centre. Our restaurants are well known even outside the borders of Saxony. You will rarely see living history presented in a more beautiful or luxurious manner as you will in our hotel.
This is but one of the reasons that we hope to welcome you very soon.
