Brenners Park-Hotel & Spa
For over 145 years, "Brenners", as our grand hotel is affectionately known, has presided over Lichtentaler Allee, amidst the verdant splendour of Baden-Baden’s park. Since opening in 1872 Brenners has hosted dignitaries from around the world. In the early years, the Shah of Persia, the king of Siam and a young King Edward VII were all guests of the hotel. Today, statesmen and presidents are welcomed. Times may have changed but as a bastion of fine living, Brenners has not. Discerning travellers return year after year to experience Brenners’ unique "lifestyle at one with nature". Our history in hospitality is full of interesting details; we hope you will enjoy browsing through our significant events over the years, captured in images
The birth of Brenners
Camille Brenner -
a hotelier of genius
Camille Brenner, born in 1855, takes over the Stephanienbad from his parents and embarks on a programme of expansion. With this gifted hotelier at the helm, the hotel's ascendency to a world-class grand hotel begins.
With over 200 rooms of unparalled luxury, the Stephanienbad, now renamed Hotel Stephanie, has become a star attraction in Baden-Baden, a town which itself had developed into a leading spa resort. Entries in the guest book during this time reveal the hotel's importance: 1907 sees King Chulalongkorn of Siam and Laos accompanied by his large retinue holding court at the hotel.
