The village of Höfen had not yet been incorporated into the city of Nuremberg in the year 1888 when the present inn was constructed as a residential home for Mr. Johann Wackersreuther. Around the turn of the century, this residence was renovated by Josef Köhler to become an inn and was managed until 1921
...Michael Forchhammer, the great grandfather of the current owner, purchased the property. In addition to managing the inn, Michael Forchhammer built up a haulage business. Wooden planks were transported with horses and carriages and, in the evening, people met in the "Höfener Garten" to play the card game Schafkopf and to drink a glass of beer. As early as in those times, the "Höfener Garten" was renowned for its comfort.
...Michael Forchhammer transferred the "Höfener Garten" to his daughter, Betty Zwingel and the haulage business to his daughter, Emma Sichermann.
...Elisabeth und Kurt Zwingel took over the "Höfener Garten". They renovated the inn and furnished an additional 16 guest rooms
