Hotel Adlon Kempinski says thank you

Berlin, 27 March 2020 – The coronavirus is spreading rapidly around the world - the number of infections is increasing daily and alarming headlines dominate everyday life. At the forefront, doctors, nurses and hospital staff in particular fight tirelessly every day for the well-being of their patients. There is hardly a pause for them. In order to demonstrate its gratitude to these heroes for their self-sacrificing efforts, the Hotel Adlon Kempinski Berlin has set over a thousand overnights stays, for Berlin’s healthcare workers to use as soon as the crisis abates and the restrictions on hotel accommodation are relaxed. Through March 2021, our heroes can spend a night free of charge in Berlin’s most iconic hotel and the stay will be entirely dedicated to the relaxation and pampering of stressed helpers. Under the keyword “Heroes in Health Care”, overnight stays can be requested at reservation.adlon@kempinski and served according to agreement and availability. Hotel Adlon Kempinski Berlin also wants to help those who are particularly affected by this extraordinary period of crisis: the homeless in our city. With GEBEWO pro gGmbH, have partnered with an organization currently building a facility for 150 affected people, with the aim of securing a day-long refuge for those in need of protection. The Adlon’s inevitably reduced kitchen team will deliver breakfast at least once a week.

With Easter around the corner – this year, a very different Easter for all of us – Hotel Adlon Kempinski is determined to maintain its tradition of legendary Easter Lamb Cake. Our cakes will not only be for hotel guests, but our team of trainee chefs is also planning a large campaign to feed crisis workers. The Adlon kitchens will prepare more than 500 Easter Lamb Cakes, package them, and distribute them as an Easter greeting to crisis workers throughout Berlin, including, of course, the needy homeless. Michael Sorgenfrey, who took over the management of the Hotel Adlon Kempinski Berlin in mid-February, says: “I am incredibly proud of my team. Despite the difficult situation that affects all our employees, each continues to be dedicated and committed. There are small gestures within our means, and as a member of the hospitality industry, which is so important to this great city, we see it as vital for us to contribute to the community.
