What you need to know about the hotel

This classical hotel’s historical roots blend seamlessly with a decided contemporary flair

  • The 9,000-square-foot Adlon Spa by Resense indulges you with private spa suites and extras like yoga sessions with a yoga master
  • The three prestige suites include luxuries like personal butlers, Jacuzzis, separate living quarters and high-end entertainment centers
  • In the summer, Adlon Terrace transforms into the Moët Ice Impérial Lounge, featuring a selection of fruity champagne cocktails

The 382-room Hotel Adlon Kempinski is the only grand hotel in Berlin with a 100-year history. Originally built in 1907, the Hotel Adlon burned down in 1945. It took the fall of the Berlin Wall to resurrect the property, which re-launched in 1997. Today, it has classic European interiors that are balanced with a contemporary edge and high-tech comforts. The hotel also boasts four restaurants whose cuisines range from Japanese to Mediterranean (plus a seasonal truffle menu), an expansive spa, a heated indoor pool with sun beds and pool bar and a fitness room with iPods and headsets.

Where is it and what's nearby

The hotel enjoys an enviable spot in booming Berlin right next to the landmark Brandenburg Gate

  • Adlon Kempinski’s well-connected concierge staff can make reservations for your lunch at the German parliament (Reichstag)
  • The Berlin Wall Memorial contains a partially reconstructed section of the wall but is mostly stainless steel with slots for peeking through
  • The historic Nikolai Quarter, on the Spree River banks where Berlin was born, is a feast of rebuilt medieval and baroque buildings

Spectacular views (and access to) Brandenburg Gate is one of the best reasons to stay at the posh Adlon Kempinski. It’s also close to cultural attractions like Gendarmenmarkt, the Jewish Holocaust Memorial, Potsdamer Platz and Pergamon Museum and is within walking distance of popular galleries and shopping areas.

Though Berlin is a modern metropolis, Germany’s capital has a wealth of history to share, exemplified by more than 175 museums. It’s also a cultural powerhouse with some 300 art galleries, three opera houses and eight major symphony orchestras.

How to enjoy Berlin

Berlin has an almost idiosyncratic talent for combining quirky Bohemia with classy culture; gritty history and lovely green open spaces. It’s as easy to spend three days at one party as it is to enjoy a quiet Michelin-starred meal

  • Take a trip to the top of the Reichstag’s striking glass dome and enjoy 360° views of the city
  • The Jewish Museum’s shape suggests a broken Star of David and hosts heart-rending displays in memory of German Jews
  • Visit Museum Island, home to several world-class museums and exhibition spaces including the Pergamonmuseum

A good place to start exploring Berlin is in and around central Mitte. At one end you will find the iconic Brandenberg Gate which opens out onto the green expanse of Tiergarten Park. Nearby is the Reichstag, the impressive German Parliament building and the Peter Eisenmann moving memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe. The monument comprises a garden of thousands of columns of varying heights. Also close by is Humboldt University, where Einstein taught.

No visit to this city would be complete without seeing the remnants of the Berlin Wall, the physical embodiment of the Cold War that literally cut East from West, dividing families as well as politics. A piece about a mile long remains in the Friedrichshain district. Decorated with more than 100 murals it is a wonderful open air gallery. The other remaining symbol of this part of Berlin’s history is Checkpoint Charlie the former border crossing between East and West and witness to many ingenious escape attempts.

    When to visit Berlin

     Visit in the summer when Berliners come out to play enjoying the delights of pavement cafes and the lake-studded parks. In June is the street party that is the Christopher Street Day Parade. Twice a year, in January and August, you can experience the Long Night of the Museums, when the city’s cultural spots stay open late and host special events.
