The Bayerischer Hof in Munich
is one of the few large and famous International Hotels
which has been run by its owners for more than 100 years.
It is located in the Main Shopping Area of Munich.
Grand Hotels are Traditionally the Centre of the social scene
of any City.
Welcome to the world of the Bayerischer Hof.
The Volkhardt family bought the Building,
which is Centrally located at the Promenadeplatz in
Munich, in 1897.
Today, almost 100 years later, the House is still successfully
run by the fourth generation of the family.
The history of the Hotel began in 1840. Based upon the wish of
Ludwig I of Bavaria, " Reichsrat " Josef Ritter von Maffei converted an
old inn at the Promenadeplatz into a prestigious Hotel with the
impressive number of 100 Rooms and two Function Halls. The standard of
luxury was such that even from the start, Queen Elizabeth of Austria
was one of the regulars at the new establishment. Falk Volkhardt took
over the Hotel as the single owner in 1959 and with a plan of careful
investment coupled with continuous modernization work turned the Hotel
into an institution with a worldwide reputation.
The Palais Montgelas, located immediately
next to the Bayerischer Hof, has belonged to the
Hotel since 1969 when Falk Volkhardt purchased the Palais from the
Bavarian state and converted the historic Rooms into a range of Hotel
Suites, Conference and Meeting Rooms. The historic setting of the
Palais, which is classified as a historical monument, has been
preserved. Numerous antiques give it a unique historical atmosphere.
The magnificent Baroque Building got its name from Maximilian
Josef Graf Montgelas, who was one of the most powerful ministers of
Bavaria and a keen reformist. He bought the majestic estate in 1803 and
extended it in 1810. The seat of the state ministry of the Royal House
was later established here. Over the years the Palais Montgelas was a
stage for many important events. It was here that Maximilian III was
crowned Elector, where the secularization of Graf Montgelas was signed
and the treaties concerning the soviet republic were signed. It is also
where Nuntius Pacelli, the late Pope Pius XII, signed the Bavarian
