    Rooms 54 / Architecture / Interior Design Anja Müller / The Original Prof. Hans Georg Näder

    When you step into Hotel zum Löwen, a timber-framed building in the heart of medieval Duderstadt, it feels like you’re entering a close friend’s home. Businessman-turned-art-collector Hans Georg Näder reflects his deep connection to his hometown in every element of Hotel zum Löwen, from the artworks from his private collection that grace the hotel’s walls to the handpicked wine-list. The best elements of a traditional German guesthouse have been retained, and then reinvigorated with modern design and comfort like a resort-quality spa, complete with a steam room, pool, and salt sauna. The newly renovated 17th Century building also has three meeting rooms, a daylight- drenched winter garden, vaulted wine cellars, and an in-house microbrewery overseen by an acclaimed local Braumeister. From the balconies of the largest of the 53 rooms and suites you can see Duderstadt’s red rooftops and black spires stretching into the distance.

    The Past Meets the Future

    The Hotel zum Löwen looks back on a history that spans more than 300 years. As early as the 17th century it was one of the first addresses in Duderstadt. In the 1850s, the building received the classical facade that graces Duderstadt’s leading guest house today. Prior to its current incarnation, the building was used as a refugee center in the postwar years and was modernized in 1987 by Nader's father. Nader’s love of art and travel ushers in a new chapter in the rich history of the building, inspiring an extensive redesign that combines artistic and museological concepts with sophisticated design.

    Interior designer Anja Müller brought the property into line with Näder’s personality, using dramatic shades of dark green, purple and brown. However, she never strayed far from the dominant idea: to create a modern adaptation of the traditional German guesthouse, emphasizing the notion of hospitality with flourishes like a cozy hearth and shelves lined with books for guests to peruse.

    The public spaces are sociable, relaxing and conducive to absorbing the surroundings, which include photographs by the acclaimed German photographers Bernd and Hilla Becher and an extravagant crystal chandelier. Comfortable furnishings have been handpicked from a diverse group of well-known designers (including Brazilian pioneer Sérgio Rodrigues) but the materials used – such as dark, hard wood – remain consistent.

    Hans Georg Näder

    Despite being one of Germany's most successful businessmen, Professor Hans Georg Näder has maintained a strong connection to his hometown, Duderstadt, which has a population of just over 20,000. He's the third generation CEO of Ottobock, the world market leader in prosthetics and medical technology, whose headquarters attracts visitors from around the globe, and he has now opened a gallery in Duderstadt to display his vast private collection of art. “Art has truly gripped me - though the draw was initially subtle,” the business man and charity activist explains, “The collection mirrors my development. Important works in my collection come from strong artistic personalities, such as Neo Rauch, Helmut Newton, Thomas Ruff and Götz Diergarten.” It seemed natural for the passionate yachtsman to open art-filled Hotel zum Löwen in the historic city, too. Näder is passionate about improving the wellbeing of children, and in 2012 he helped to launch Schutzräume für Kinder Duderstadt, a charity that protects disadvantaged youngsters.
