Located at the western gate to the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Wachau, the hotel-restaurant “Zum Schwarzen Bären” blends harmoniously into the historic town center. Emmersdorf is located directly on the Danube, just 3km from Melk and is the ideal starting point for exploring the beautiful Danube valley and the surrounding idyllic destinations.
The Wachau is one of the most beautiful and best-known regions in Austria. Thanks to the comparatively mild climate, the Wachau is also one of the most important wine-growing regions in the country. The best way to explore the area is by bike or on foot. The Danube cycle path leads almost directly past the hotel. Unforgettable moments and views are guaranteed. On a Wachau boat trip, you can marvel at the breathtaking scenery from the comfort of the water.


Owned by the Pritz family since 1908, the “Black Bear” has been continually expanded and modernized over generations with sensitivity and great attention to detail. Behind historic facades you can expect an inn, an à la carte restaurant, magical parlors, a beautiful winter garden, a garden terrace, a vaulted wine cellar with exquisite wines from the Wachau and 2 modern conference rooms. In the unique ambience of the restaurant, enjoy regional Wachau specialties, traditionally prepared Waldviertel fish dishes or light, creative delicacies - prepared personally by the chef. The large garden with a lawn invites you to relax. A bicycle garage, elevator and free parking spaces complete the hotel offering. Free WiFi is available in the lobby and in the rooms.
