The Hotel-Restaurant Le Cheval Blanc stands proudly in the centre of the little village of Niedersteinbach, surrounded by a protected landscape of magnificent romantic valleys and fir tree forests. In respect of the House tradition, the Zinck family has been giving guests a warm and convivial welcome since 1924.

Soothed by the sounds of the nearby river, you’ll sleep peacefully in this typically charming Alsatian Inn.

Our 30 cosy rooms, some romantic, some themed, have been renovated and all harmoniously combine classical furniture with contemporary comfort. Each room has its own personality to please a wide range of clients.
One room is equipped to receive reduced mobility clients.
For those who like something different, we also have a gypsy caravan, that can acocmodate two.

Warmth, simplicity, availability and respect for tradition are key words for the welcome that the Zinck family reserves for you at their Inn. There is a little bistro, Winstub, and four large, warm, elegant rooms available for private parties.

A SPA wellness area is at your disposal, composed of a sauna, Thermo-Spa, relaxation room, outdoor heated pool and a massage room with customised treatments.

The hotel has an air-conditioned seminar room with a balcony for meetings, training sessions and half or full-board seminars with a gastronomic package. It’s fully equipped with a capacity of 17 people.

Key words for the welcome that the Zinck family reserve for you at their Inn are warmth, simplicity, availability and respect for tradition. There is a little bistro, Winstub, and four large, warm, elegant rooms available for private parties.

Elaborated from quality produce, carefully selected and awarded numerous titles and labels, the cuisine is refined, inventive, classical and regional.

A wide variety of set menus are available. Renowned since 1924 for it’s fresh “caught to order” trout from the fish pond at the foot of the hotel, as well as for its game. In autumn the restaurant attracts enthusiasts for its excellent venison

Vegetarians are also catered to, and a range of dishes are specifically concocted for them.

To accompany these delicacies, our sommeliers Thomas Zinck and Thierry Leichtnam will advise you on the house’s 300+ wine list.


Breakfast buffet €14
