Europäischer Hof in Baden-Baden scheduled to reopen in 2017

Albert Steigenberger made Steigenberger history in 1930 when he acquired the prestigious Europäischer Hof Hotel in Baden-Baden, the founding property of the Steigenberger Hotel Group which this year will be celebrating its 85th anniversary along with the rest of the company. The Europäischer Hof is, in fact, almost twice as old as Steigenberger having been constructed as long ago as 1840. It is now set to receive a resplendent new look when it reopens in 2017 following extensive renovation and modernisation works.

The location of Baden-Baden has a special significance. The "Europ", as the Europäischer Hof is affectionately known, has helped to define the company in many ways and provided crucial impetuses for Steigenberger's corporate culture. It still embodies a number of essential Steigenberger values down to the present day in the form of tradition, innovation, German hospitality and the very highest standards of service at an international level.

After 85 years of faithful service to the Steigenberger Hotel Group, the Europäischer Hof is now to undergo a process of rejuvenation. An extensive modernisation and renovation programme will upgrade it to Grand Hotel Standard and enable it to join the ranks of the Steigenberger flagship properties of the Frankfurter Hof, the Parkhotel in Düsseldorf and the Grandhotel in Brussels. Reopening is scheduled for 2017.  

The new Mainz-based owner of the hotel, Europäischer Hof Kaiserallee Immobilien 1 GmbH & Co. KG, has agreed a long-term management agreement with the Steigenberger Hotel Group.  

"We are very happy to be able to continue such constructive cooperation over a period of many years," said Puneet Chhatwal, CEO of Steigenberger Hotels AG. "Baden-Baden is a key location for us, because this is the very spot at which our history began. The aim of our corporate strategy is to pursue international expansion whilst emphasising our roots and our rich tradition."
