Celebrate parties – visit markets – experience Bielefeld

Our Hotel Bielefelder Hof is the ideal starting point to visit all the great festivals and markets in our city. The Bielefeld main train station is directly opposite outrr hotel and guarantees a comfortable journey by train.

There are dates that are important for every Bielefeld citizen and many guests from the East Westphalia region. Annually recurring festivals and markets that invite you to a glass of wine, a crêpes or a bratwurst are an occasion for a sociable get-together with friends.

Starting with the night views in spring, the Leineweber market, the Sparrenburgfest and the evening market in summer, to the Oktoberfest and the wine market in autumn, the year ends comfortably with the cozy christmas market in December.

The major events had to be canceled, but the city of Bielefeld offers many alternatives to combine your stay at the Hotel Bielefelder Hof with a great experience.
