Reichshof Hamburg Opening Party
1200 guests enjoyed the unique atmosphere
The Hotel Reichshof Hamburg celebrated their official opening in mid-September with a glamourous Party. Approximately 1200 guests enjoyed the unique atmosphere of the first hotel of the brand „Curio – A Collection by Hilton“ in Europe – as well as the delicious treats from the kitchen of Frank Bertram, who has moved into this historically protected hotel beside Hamburg’s Central Train Station with his Restaurant ‚slowman‘.
During it’s more than 100 year history, the Reichshof Hamburg is not only known for it’s ideal location in central Hamburg and it’s opulent style from the early 20th century. Also the parties that the owners, Family Langer, celebrated there regularly since the opening in 1910 were legendary. They attracted not only Hamburg locals, but also international entertainers such as Louis Armstrong and David Bowie.
Also in future the Reichshof Hamburg will continue to combine these two groups, General Manager Folke Sievers places great importance in this aspect: „The Reichshof Hamburg is the perfect reference point and starting point for all leisure and business guests – and also a lively part of this city. During the renovation we have added modern features to this historical hotel, but have maintained the most important aspect: the unique character of this hotel. I feel we have been successful in reviving the spirit in which the visionary Anton-Emil Langer, first founded this hotel more than 100 years ago.“
General Manager Folke Sievers, Anders Braks (CEO of the Event Hotelgruppe), Dianna Vaughan (global manager of the brand Curio by Hilton) and Hamburg’s head of tourism Dietrich von Albedyll welcomed the approximately 1200 guests to the Reichshof Hamburg. Also the former owner of the hotel, Ingeborg Langer, greeted the guests, who were all excited about the colorful program: Singer Love Newkirk was impressive, as well as the late performance of NiteClub. However a special surprise for the public was another musician – the Kitchen Chef Frank Bertram left the preparation of “quality Eiderstedter Beef” and other delicacies to his team and performed with his band in the bar 1910. One song really gave the crowd goosebumps: for the special occasion, he played the song “Schrei nach Liebe” (Scream for Love) by Die Ärzte. The Hotel’s Director Folke Sievers mentioned the subject of the refugees staying across the road at Hamburg’s Central Station: „We cannot and should not close our eyes to what is happening out there. I can promise you that we will take our responsibility seriously. In hanseatic style I would rather not talk further on this matter this evening and celebrate the reopening of this historical hotel with you.“BOOK NOW
