Borrowing from French auberge. The term is attested in the fifteenth century as French aulberge, a loan from a term attested in eleventh century Old Provençal alberge (“camp, hut”), derived from albergar (“host”). The term originated in Frankish heriberga, from Proto-Germanic *haribergôn (“housing, house (army)”), composed of the elements *hari (“army”) (compare German Heer) and *bergon (“shelter, protect”), whence German bergen.
