160 years of tradition
1849, the license to sell alcoholic beverages was extended for the Weiper family the first time. Unfortunately information on the period before 1849 does not exist. But the name Nagel started playing a role in 1907 when Anna Weiper and Joseph Nagel married and took over the operation. Their son Alois and Elizabeth Schrieverhoff married in 1951 which was also the "re-opening" year of the pub. After a few years, in 1955, the hall is extended. In 1979 the bowling alley was added and the hall extended again.
Josef (son of Alois and Elisabeth) and Beate Nagel married in 1985 to run the family business. In 1994, the two extended the guesthouse and 14 rooms were available. However, that wasn´t enough. In 2001, the hotel was built with beer garden and there were another 13 comfort rooms added. 2008 Josef Nagel created a "jeux de boules" track in his beergarden and the 1st südlohnner Boulesclub was founded.
