Historic and modern: our 3-star hotel with a long-standing family tradition

At our Hotel zur Windmühle you will be a guest in a family-run establishment. The “Windmühle” has been in the continuous possession of the Sturm family for exactly 100 years. In 1914, Johann Michael Sturm from Steinbach bought the guesthouse high above Ansbach. Since then, each generation of the Sturm family has dedicated itself to their hotel with great passion and commitment

Today, three generations of the family run the hotel: After Johann Michael Sturm, his son Hans took over the family business. He passed it on to Johann Sturm, whose wife Elfriede Sturm is still active today as the Senior Manager in the service department. Their son Helmut Sturm has been working in his parents' business since 1979, has been a chef since 1983 and Managing Director since 1996, actively supported by his wife Ruth. With his two sons Michael and Christian, the next generation is already ready to lead the Hotel Windmühle successfully into the future.

The Chef, Michael Sturm has a true passion for the hotel and restaurant industry. Best in his year in his journeyman's examination, training at the Hotel Management School in Heidelberg, further training at the 5-star Hotel Bareiss in the Black Forest, winner of the Johann Lafer Award 2013, state-certified restaurateur - with this wealth of experience, he now supports his father Helmut Sturm with the management of the Hotel and Restaurant.

Christian Sturm is now also ready to help the “Windmühle” after successfully completing his training as a Hotel Manager.
