Welcome to Minden and the Hotel Silke!
You'll find us on Fischerglacis No. 21 alongside the Glacis, the 'Central Park' of the town. The Glacis used to be the defence wall of the town in medieval times.
The hotel is also quite near to the local station, only 20 minutes walk and 5 – 10 minutes walk to centre of town with its famous medieval 'Dom'/cathedral.
Main House (1910/11)
The original house of the founder was built in timber-framed style in 1910/11.
In later years the middle part was built, which is a three-storey skeleton construction, built on stilts. The reception and the breakfast room as well as 3 guest rooms are in the Main House.
Middle Section (1961)
This three-storey building being built on stilts, has an open ground floor which is used as a parking lot. On the first and second floors are 6 guest rooms on each floor. They all have large windows overlooking the garden, however, no balcony. During the last two years 8 of these guest rooms have been fully re-furnished, the bathrooms completely modernized.
The indoor swimming pool, which was built (1975) connects to the middle section by simple architecture creating the lobby with reception area. The lobby is spacious and open and has various seating corners with cosy chairs and sofas for relaxing.
New House (2015)
The newest building was built on the grounds in the garden, facing the Middle Section and the lobby entrance. It has 6 guest rooms, all with different modern interior and spacious bed/sitting-rooms. All rooms have either a patio or large balcony.
In total we offer 21 guest rooms.
