history


The Hotel Spichrz is situated in the centre of the Old Town, among other monuments of Toruń that are a part of the UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Two – wing, four – storey granary built by Jan Noggen – a merchant from Toruń – is at present one of the biggest buildings of this kind in Poland. Over the years it served as a granary, military barracks and in 1823 the Prussian authorities converted the granary into a food storehouse for the army. The date is significant since that year all ceilings were replaced and new stairs and a roof were installed. The granary was connected with the tower (situated in a row of medieval defensive walls) by adding the so-called passage with a crane. The tower was also converted: the roof was changed into a gabled one, the crane with a huge treadmill and a beam to wind a transport rope were installed. With slight changes, the granary survived till the 1990s, serving in the meantime e.g. as an office.

In 1999, the present owners started renovation works. The restoration of the original arrangement of interiors, antique wooden beams, ceilings, the repair of the crane wheel and adaptation of the Swedish granary to the hotel and restaurant lasted to 2003 when the Hotel Karczma Spichrz was officially opened.
