History of the Adlon Kempinsky Berlin

Few hotels have had as tumultuous a history as the Hotel Adlon Kempinski. Its fate has mirrored that of its home city, ever since Lorenz Adlon first convinced emperor Wilhelm II that the German capital deserved a grand luxury hotel on par with those in London and Paris.

After it opened in 1907, it became Berlin’s most important social center for the upper class. During the Weimar period, it ranked among the most famous in the world.

The hotel even managed to survive the bombings of World War II with little damage, but was destroyed soon after in a blaze that, according to legend, was accidentally started in the wine cellar by drunken Red Army soldiers. A few years after the wall fell, the site of the original hotel was acquired for the new Hotel Adlon Kempinski, which opened in 1997.
