Swiss hotel manager Emanuel Berger receives the ”Golden Globe“ badge of honour
Berlin, When Emanuel Berger took over as manager of the Grand Hotel Victoria-Jungfrau in Interlaken in 1970 it was what he described as ”an elegant lady with torn underwear.” Gradually, and with a remarkable awareness of the changes taking place in the hotel industry, this intensely committed hotelier is responsible for the distinctive appearance of the Grand Hotel as it is today. In just a few years Berger turned this hotel, situated at the foot of the internationally renowned mountain backdrop of the Eiger, Jungfrau and Mönch, into an outstanding international address. The success of this exceptional hotelier is borne out by the many awards he has already achieved.
Even after vacating the manager’s position Berger was not content to rest on his laurels, taking over as general operations manager for the Victoria Jungfrau-Collection, which comprises the Palace Luzern, the Eden au Lac Zürich and the Bellevue Palace Bern. In the words of David Ruetz, Senior Manager of ITB Berlin: “From the very beginning, in the 1970s, Mr. Berger has been one of our most important partners, supporting ITB Berlin not only in his capacity as a hotelier, but also as a representative of one of the world’s leading hotels.“
