Behind the stately sandstone façade, this building surprises every visitor with its grand entrance hall that is well-known even beyond the borders of Hamburg: elaborate wood carvings, ornamented stucco ceilings, fine woods, decorative marble floors and huge chandeliers in Art Nouveau style create an almost cinematic atmosphere. One thing is certain: the Hindenburghaus, built in 1909 by the architects Hiller & Kuhlmann as a luxury hotel, was designed to impress. And it continues to do so. The First World War, however, put an abrupt end to its use as a hotel. Hanseatic merchants were quick to set up their offices in the building, turning it into a Kontorhaus gem. The refurbishment aims to let the unique character of this listed building shine in new splendour.
As part of the Nikolai Quartier, the Hindenburghaus building benefits from the upgrade of the Business Improvement District. The property enjoys a central location, situated within walking distance of the town hall, the stock exchange, various bus stops and the U- and S-Bahn stations Rödingsmarkt and Stadthausbrücke.
