the niu Timber

the niu Home

The niu Timber is a puristic and modern reinterpretation of the romantic timber-framed scenery of Esslingen. A place to hang back, relax, enjoy or retreat. Here you can exchange ideas with locals in our Living Lobby or simply get lost in our library - as long as you're happy and relaxed.

Good to know: Timber-frame is the central design element in the Esslingen region, which makes it world famous - thus the name for our hotel.

Design & Art

What would the niu be without design and art? Well, it surely wouldn’t be the niu, because we have chosen art as a central design element. Each design of our houses stands for its own story, inspired by the neighborhood, culture and history of the city. For the art design, we turn to emerging, young artists* who find a platform for their creativity with us. With great, individual pictures and murals they show what "street art" can be and bring our motto to life with humor and attention to details.

Come in and stay awhile!

The niu Timber is your sustainable home away from home. It is a place to breathe and lie back. The interesting mixture of natural materials such as wood, leather, and stone gives the niu Timber a great and harmonious ambience. In the middle of the upscale and romantic town of Esslingen, the niu Timber is a modernistic spaceship, which welcomes you in its cosmopolitan serenity. Check-in, engage and let go!
