The Adlon in Berlin: An eventful history

The Adlon in Berlin is probably the most prestigious hotel in Germany. Opened in 1907, the Adlon stood for luxurious furnishings and a noble ambience from the very beginning. So it is not surprising that within a few years the hotel became the first house on the square. You don't stay at the Adlon, you want to be at the Adlon, was the slogan issued by hotel founder Lorenz Adlon.

During the Second World War, the Hotel Adlon was severely damaged. Located in the eastern part of the city, the remains then fell under the administration of the GDR. It was not until after reunification that the hotel was completely rebuilt in 1997.

To this day, the Adlon represents luxury and exclusivity. As a five-star hotel with conference rooms and ballrooms, it manages the balancing act between tradition and modernity. In 2000, the gourmet restaurant "Lorenz Adlon Esszimmer", now honored with two Michelin stars, was opened. With an annual turnover of more than 60 million euros, the Adlon is one of the most successful hotels in Germany.
