all about sofie

make the most of your stay


From bathhouse to ballroom

Ruby Sofie began life as the Sofiensäle, a grand 19th-century bathhouse. Thanks to her outstanding acoustics though, singing in the shower quickly turned to concerts and gala balls, with everyone from Johann Strauss to the Kinks gracing her stage.

When it comes to design, we’ve taken cues from our leading lady’s past life, mixing vintage playbills and furnishings with a head-turning piano.

So come on in and watch the world waltz by…

Enjoy our breakfast

Our tasty, locally sourced breakfast buffet is served in the bar every morning, along with bottomless barista coffee or organic tea. Tuck into fresh fruit and superfood cereals, along with wholegrain bread and a delicious selection of meats and cheeses. Our favourite is the local speciality, Liptauer. Grab a bagel or a slice of bread and top with lashings of this seriously addictive spicy cream cheese.

Didn't book breakfast? No problem. We'd still love to see you there. It's €24, which we'll charge to your card.
