The first documented mention of the village of Kainsbach and the local mill plant goes back to 1312. For almost 650 years, the Kainsbach mill was used to provide the flour for the daily bread in the village.

In 1942 the mill ended its production. In the following years the mill was used as an temporary accommodation facility for families from Nuremberg which had been bombed out. When the Franconian manufacturer Fritz Collischan bought the mill in 1957 it got transformed into a guest house for his employees. The facility got its present purpose.

In 1973, the Herzog family acquired the estate and built it up to the present size. During these decades, the Kainsbacher Mühle evolved into a very successful hotel, which received numerous awards and became well known far beyond the region.

On 1st January 2016 Stephanie and Ron Erras took over the Hotel “Kainsbacher Mühle”. They give the traditional hotel a new face, fresh ideas and a long-term future perspective.


The two young professionals can rely on over 22 years of experience as their family used to own one of the largest and most important business and conference hotels in northern Bavaria, the HOTEL-PYRAMIDE in Fürth. In addition, the graduate business manager and the studied trade fair, congress and event specialist do not only have the necessary expertise, but above all a lot of passion, commitment and joy for the hotel industry. Therefore, the new concept of the Kainsbacher Mühle is an harmonious combination of the personal hospitality of a privately run individual hotel and the quality and professionalism of decades of hotel industry experience.
