There are plenty of reasons to make Mulhouse your next holiday destination; aside from the attractions within the city, it is also seen as the gateway to the Alsace wine route and is within close range of both Germany and Switzerland. Before you book your flights, be sure to go through our list of the best cultural hotels in the area so you can be assured of a great stay – bookable on Culture Trip.

1. Maison Mondrian

This hotel has a striking façade painted in the style of Piet Mondrian, and its interior is equally artistic, combining industrial and raw materials (like wood, steel, and stone) with unusual works of art to create a distinctive design. Each of the five rooms has a colour theme: green, yellow, black, red, or blue. Maison Mondrian’s function is also three-fold: guesthouse, gourmet grocery store, and table d’hôte – an arrangement where the proprietors of a hotel cook a set meal for their guests.

2. Peonia at Home

The 19th-century mansion that Peonia at Home occupies was built by the Dreyfus family, textile merchants who contributed greatly to the industry for which Mulhouse is now famous. This heritage is reflected in the hotel’s five elegantly furnished rooms. Owners Andrea and Antonio D’Onghia are both architects and have retained the character of the building and its grounds while also renovating it, blending historic grandeur and contemporary design. Each morning, the D’Onghias serve a beautifully presented breakfast to their guests, using freshly baked bread and homemade marmalades, jams and preserves.

3. Les Jardins du Temps

Independent Hotel

Les Jardins du Temps, lying a few miles outside of Mulhouse, is a B&B with a magnificently sculpted garden covering two hectares. Over ten years of work has gone into cultivating this patch of greenery that contains hundreds of different species of trees, shrubs, grasses, ferns, and flowers, as well as a maze, an orchard, and two ponds. There are few places more idyllic to the holiday than in one of the five rooms here, each styled after a certain plant or tree found in the garden.

4. Villa Eden

This stately home in Mulhouse’s exclusive Rebberg district offers a little slice of tranquillity to its guests. Views from the second-floor rooms of Villa Eden take in the landscaped garden, outdoor pool, and the Forest of Waldeck. Each of these rooms has been individually designed with a certain theme in mind: “Black & White”, “Zen”, “Sweet Chocolate”, and “Espirit Chalet”. Guests can relax in the sumptuous communal lounge, out on the terrace, or on the deck flanking the pool, basking on one of the sun loungers.

5. Hôtel Le Bristol

Boasting 95 rooms including suites and duplexes equipped with spa baths, kitchenettes and lounge areas, Hôtel Bristol’s warm and cosy yet upscale décor is sure to appeal to any guest. The rooms make use of wood panelling, chandeliers, marble-lined bathrooms, and furniture made from cherry wood. There are also a number of period features visible in the lobby and throughout the hotel. Its central location allows easy access to Mulhouse’s main shopping district, and a daily buffet breakfast is also served.

6. Hôtel du Parc

Designed by architect Louis Schwartz and opened in 1926, the four-star Hôtel du Parc originally housed a gallery overseen by Mulhouse art dealer Henri Gangloff, and artistic features on its exterior are believed to be the work of Frédéric Bartholdi, the sculptor responsible for the Statue of Liberty. Its distinctive Art Deco style has been maintained throughout its 76 rooms and suites, and the hotel now has a Roaring Twenties-themed bar that hosts live jazz every night.

7. La Maison d’Artgile

The restored 18th-century farmhouse which houses La Maison d’Artgile is found in Zimmersheim, a sleepy village in the countryside around 10 minutes from the centre of Mulhouse and just a 20-minute drive from the German border. Proprietor Vincente is a sculptor by trade, so each of the five rooms here is named after an artist who has a strong connection with Alsace. Exposed timbers, hand-painted Alsatian wardrobes, walnut bedsteads, and cast-iron baths can be found within. The hotel also has a sauna, private garden, swimming pool, and sun terrace.
