Steigenberger Europäischer Hof to undergo major renovation

by | 21 Apr 2022 | Design

The legendary Baden-Baden hotel will emerge from these forthcoming renovation works with a resplendent new look.

Work on Steigenberger’s original founding hotel, established by Albert Steigenberger, will begin this spring.

A historic renovation

Steinenberger is set to embark on a programme of renovations at the Europäischer Hof, which Albert Steigenberger acquired the Europäischer Hof in the 1930s before going on to influence the luxury hotel sector in Europe for many decades.

As the umbrella brand of Steigenberger Hotels & Resorts, Deutsche Hospitality will lead the historic modernisation of this storied property.

The hotel will now close for this renovation work, for which Schleith Baugesellschaft mbH and Bachhuber Contract GmbH & Co. KG are working with specialist planners, to begin.

Before being acquired by Albert Steigenberger, The Europäischer Hof was known as the The Hôtel de l’Europe, with history dating back to 1840 and many high-profile guests staying over the years.

A new Steigenberger Icon

On completion, the hotel will become a part of the Steigenberger Icons collection. Located in some of the world’s most renowned destinations, these properties combine luxury and sophistication with individual character representative of the ‘grande hôtellerie’.

Steigenberger Europäischer Hof will be joining Grandhotel Belvédère, the Frankfurter Hof, the Grandhotel & Spa Petersberg, the Parkhotel Düsseldorf, the Grandhotel Handelshof and Steigenberger Wiltcher’s, which together make up the Steigenberger Icons collection.

To ensure the hotel tells its own story, the hotel’s conversion and modernisation will see the preservation of the property’s historic facade. A new wing has also been planned to blend in with the existing architecture.

The property is currently scheduled to reopen in 2024 with new features including an integrated spa, large rooftop terrace and arcade of retail outlets.
