Europäischer Hof, the founding hotel, located in Baden-Baden and acquired by Albert Steigenberger in the 1930s, will soon reopen its door after major work led by Deutsche Hospitality.
The new Steigenberger icon Europäischer Hof will offer 121 rooms blending tradition and modernity once the renovation completed.
The hotel will also feature modern furnishings, an expansive spa area featuring exclusive spa suites, culinary catering, an atmospheric bar and lounge, with a rooftop terrace overlooking Baden-Baden.
In December 2021, a two-stage partnership-based contract model was initiated between the investor and the general contractor, a consortium of two companies, Schleith Baugesellschaft mbH and Bachhuber Contract GmbH & Co. KG.
With its team of qualified and local staff, the beauty of Europäischer Hof will be leveraged while creating space for something new. The fusion of tradition and modernity will enhance Baden-Baden's cityscape and attract national and international guests. This will make the new Steigenberger Icon Europäischer Hof an important business hub.
Nora Waggershauser, Managing Director of Kur & Tourismus GmbH
For us as well, the conversion of Hotel Europäischer Hof is also a "heart and soul" project. To create a new hotel product in a historic building whose foundation stone dates back to 1840 is a real challenge and we are pleased that we are right on schedule with the current project. The key element for this to be a success is superb collaboration between the investor and its consultants, Feuring Hotelconsulting GmbH and IQ Real Estate GmbH, as well as the municipality of Baden-Baden and Bäder- und Kurverwaltung Baden-Württemberg.
Hansjörg Maier and Rudolf Bachhuber, managing directors of the general contractor
Located at a prominent site, a high-quality luxury hotel is being built behind an old historic façade, with modern connecting elements and a smart hotel-and-room-control system, making it possible to also dovetail with the objectives of sustainability and energy-monitoring.
The comprehensive conversion and modernization measures of the Steigenberger icon Europäischer Hof Baden-Baden are a milestone in Deutsche Hospitality's storied past. The design of the hotel constitutes a perfect symbiosis of tradition and modernity, enabling top performance even in the international league. The range of hotels in the luxury segment is thus being expanded to include a real icon. It is a pleasure for us to be expanding further with the Steigenberger icon Europäischer Hof and at the same time to return to our origins.
Denis Hüttig, Senior Vice President of Deutsche Hospitality
In future, the Steigenberger icon Europäischer Hof will join well-known hotels such as Grandhotel Belvédère, Frankfurter Hof, Grandhotel & Spa Petersberg, Parkhotel Düsseldorf, Grandhotel Handelshof and Steigenberger Wiltcher's.
