The ideal venue for historical events
During the Kaiser´s time at the Kurhaus, from 1916 to 1918, important heads of state were here, like Zar Ferdinand of Bulgaria, and General Mustafa Kemal Pascha who was later known as Atatürk. In World War II the hotel was occupied alternately by French and American troops. On 27th March 1955 the Americans released the Kurhaus. Exactly one year later, in 1956, the hotel was reconditioned and reopened.
In November 1958 French President Charles de Gaulle and Germany’ s Chancellor Konrad Adenauer met here to negotiate the French-German friendship pact.
In the following years, many higher political consultations between these countries were held in the hotel, keeping not only the hospitality tradition alive but also confirming Parkhotel Kurhaus as the ideal venue for historical events.
