    Breidenbacher Hof History

    For nearly two hundred years, Breidenbacher Hof on the Königsallee was the ultimate address in luxury and hospitality.

    1806

    Entrepreneur Wilhelm Breidenbach had the vision to build a grand hotel in the booming cultural and business metropolis of Düsseldorf. He bought an estate at an auction with which the foundation stone was laid for a new legend.

    1808 - 1812

    Construction of the hotel based on the plans of the renowned urban architect Adolph Anton von Vagedes.

    1812

    Grand opening

    1840

    The famous gastronome Capellen-Heydendahl became the new owner.

    During its history, the Breidenbacher Hof, with its original highly classical façade, was renovated several times, expanded and modernised. In 1908, the hotel was called for the first time a 'Palace Hotel'.

    By the middle of the 19th century, the hotel became, under the direction of several owners, one of the most prestigious places to stay for Europe's prominence and nobility. At that time, the hotel hosted the "Whos's Who" society, including royal guests such as Russian Czar Alexander II and Prince August of Prussia.

    1943

    During a major bombing raid on Whitsun, the hotel was totally destroyed.

    1950

    The luxury hotel was rebuilt under the direction of the owner at this time: Dr. Georg Linsenmeyer. When it reopened on August 15, the hotel stood out in its new sobriety. Within a very short time, it became again the preferred home for kings, captains of industry, and not only established itself as the meeting place for the rich and famous, but also played host to many exhibitions of famous art collections.

    1999

    The Breidenbacher Hof closed down for extensive reconstruction.

    2005

    The hotel was eventually torn down and then totally rebuilt by its new owners, the Pearl of Kuweit Group.

    May 2008

    200 years after the first building license, the Breidenbacher Hof celebrated its proud comeback as the Breidenbacher Hof, a Capella Hotel.

    A new era of hospitality has begun.
