Today’s Althoff Hotel am Schlossgarten was mentioned as a hotel for the first time in 1923. After its complete destruction in the last war, it took a long time before the conditions were right to reconstruct the hotel. Only in 1959 did an invitation to tender take place. 4 renowned architects took part in the competition, which architect Schmohl was able to decide in his favour. The hotel then opened its doors again for guests in 1962.
