The reopening of a myth with a fascinating history: celebrities from politics, business and society were present when the "Gästehaus Petersberg" near Bonn reopened its doors on Monday. In his address to 600 invited guests, Heiko Maas, Federal Minister of Foreign Affairs, underlined the historical significance of the location. Over the past three decades, hundreds of heads of state have visited the Petersberg: Bill Clinton, Nelson Mandela, and the  Dalai Lama.  The name 'Petersberg' stands for a German diplomacy that does not duck away from international responsibility. So it's no wonder that Petersberg has become an eponym time and again - and that it is the setting of the yearly Petersberg Climate Dialogue, a future-oriented topic that moves people in Germany and Europe like no other. Now a new chapter in the history of this place is opening.

n the presence of Eva Luise Köhler a raffle to the benefit of the Eva Luise und Horst Köhler Stiftung für Menschen mit Seltenen Erkrankungen (a foundation for people with rare diseases) took place during the ceremony. A total of 10,000 euros were collected for the foundation's work.

Built by 4711 perfume manufacturer Ferdinand Mülhens, the hotel has been part of Steigenberger Hotels & Resorts since 1990 and is considered one of the flagships of the renowned group. The owner of the Petersberg Guesthouse is BImA, which coordinated and paid for the reconstruction work. The hotel is operated by Gästehaus Petersberg GmbH, with BImA being the sole shareholder.

From Guesthouse to Grand Hotel

The Guesthouse Petersberg accommodated state guests and royals from all over the world. It was the backdrop for important political decisions, meeting place of the powerful and retreat of celebrities - among the guests were Queen Elizabeth II as well as the Dalai Lama. After extensive modernisation with a volume of over 40 million euros, the Steigenberger Grandhotel & Spa Petersberg joins the ranks of German luxury hotels. It impresses with noble interior, a varied culinary choice and, for those seeking recreation, the extended spa and wellness area with its singular view of the Rhine valley.
