Restaurants Hospitable tradition & culinary delights

Romantik Hotel Zur Schwane
Culinary delights for every palate

More than 600 years of hospitable tradition: that is what distinguishes the Romantik Hotel Zur Schwane. Cosy rusticity and nostalgic details characterise our exclusive starred restaurant Weinstock, our cozy Restaurant Schwane 1404, the Weinstube and Ratsherrenstube. Our young kitchen team masters its craft perfectly and also gives the fine gourmandises the necessary creativity. Here, for example, the tiramisu of Volkach asparagus with vinaigrette of pink pepper and chervil as well as the saddle of lamb under a goat's cheese crust with sautéed ruccola are worth mentioning. The service is friendly and attentive, and in summer the dishes are also served in the idyllic inner courtyard. The wine list is excellent, with the restaurant's own wines, all of which are served by the glass.

Romantik Hotel Zur Schwane
Restaurant "Schwane 1404"

Our historic restaurant

Franconian hospitality, interpreted in a modern way. Whether it's a bratwurst with a glass of Silvaner at lunchtime or an exciting wine menu from the Franconian home cuisine in the evening - let us spoil you in the warmest way. In Franconia's oldest, originally preserved inn or in the vine-covered inner courtyard, guests of the house enjoy predominantly regional Franconian cuisine of the highest standard. The culinary responsibility lies with top chef Cornelia Fischer, who transfers her Franconian roots into a modern culinary style.

Opening hours:

Mon - Sun: "Schwane Brotzeit" from 12:00 noon - 2:00 pm

Fri - Tue: Evening menu from 18:00 - 20:30.

The kitchen is closed on Wednesday and Thursday evenings. On these days we offer a delicious “Schwane Brotzeit” in our wine bar. On Thursday evenings we offer our residents a 4-course menu.

Hendrik Friedrich

Hendrik Friedrich

learned his trade in a Keull restaurant in Coesfeld. After working in Hamburg (“Jellyfish” and “Petit Amour”), he moved to beautiful Lech am Arlberg, where he became a master chef. There he took up his first position as head chef at the “Severin”. He then moved on to Ulm to the “Siedepunkt” restaurant. He brilliantly defended his Michelin star there in 2023 and we are proud to have Hendrik in our ranks as a great young chef who meets our culinary standards in the best possible way.

Be creative in an extraordinary ambience

The Düker family puts a lot of heart into ensuring that your conference in this small hotel has an individual flair. Only one conference at a time takes place at the Romantik Hotel Zur Schwane. This, and the cosy ambience under the painted coffered ceiling or in summer in the beautifully paved inner courtyard, will make your seminar a special event. You can round it off with an eventful social programme with vineyard walks and cellar tours in your own winery, wine tastings with Eva Pfaff-Düker, morning jogging along the banks of the Main or you can visit Franconian cultural assets.


Where does the Escherndorfer Lump get its name? What is a baffle slope? Where is the Mainschleife? Back to the Triassic. Swans on wheels. What does wine taste like? Where does the wine grow?

You will learn this and much more on our MainGenussTrail. Join our guide Marion, the Schwane cuisine and the wine on a hike around the Mainschleife.

Our MainGenuss dates 2023 are:

Schwane Gewachshaus


Since 2022, our greenhouse has been located at the winery at Erlachhof. Cornelia Fischer and her colleagues cultivate, care for and grow some of the organically grown vegetables that are needed for our two restaurants. Thus, we determine the time of harvest and the degree of ripeness ourselves. In addition, we avoid long transport routes and reduce the burden on the climate. At the same time, we can offer our guests delicious, fresh and regional dishes.

We are also sustainable in the area of mobility with our e-car. There are 8 e-charging stations for our guests.

The photovoltaic system on the roof of our winery supplies us with an additional 60 KW.

Gastgeber Romantik Hotel Zur Schwane

Our Hosts Our Hosts

With a warm "Grüß Gott", the two hosts Eva Pfaff-Düker and Ralph Düker have been welcoming their guests for many years. The winemakers not only share a love of hospitality, but also a love of wine. Thus, the boutique hotel also includes the winery of the same name. As winegrowers, they maintain the long tradition of the house and like to take their guests into the vineyards. The Düker family has been running the hotel "zur Schwane" for three generations and is deeply rooted in the Franconian region. The more than 40 employees are also mainly from Franconia and put a lot of passion into the beautiful hotel in Volkach am Main.
