Where once Count Zeppelin built his airships, the building now known as the Kongresshotel Potsdam was built in the 1990s. The architecture uniquely picks up on the character of airships: all three main buildings hover like Zeppelins over the grounds by the Templiner See. The preservation-listed buildings of the former airship production yard were impressively integrated into a modern hotel facility that fulfils the highest demands. Originally built as the East German Savings Bank Academy, it was converted into a congress hotel in 2004. The close ties with the savings bank group ("Ostdeutscher Sparkassenverband") remain. The hotel restaurants were also opened the same year and have catered for the hotel guests and locals alike ever since.
The former production site of the airship yard was impressively converted into a modern conference hotel without losing sight of the location's history. Today, the large hangar with its expansive glass roof serves as a Congress Hall for major events. The architecture acts as a connecting element between the history of the airships and the modern character of the Kongresshotel. The Kongresshotel Potsdam feels connected not only to the history of its location, but also to the city of Potsdam and the state of Brandenburg. Partnerships in the region and especially in sports, for instance with our direct neighbours, the Olympic facility and sports park, are very important to us. We have worked for years with many of our partners, and that collaboration is evident in the Kongresshotel.
