The historic Ermelerhaus was named after Ferdinand-Wilhelm Ermeler, the co-founder of the tobacco industry in Berlin, who purchased the house in 1824. Since then, the importance of the house gradually grew, as a lot of cultural event were held there through the years; the Ermelerhaus became an important intellectual meeting place in Berlin.
The building was originally built in the 17th century at Breite Straße and was extended to a Rococo palace, but it was torn down in the 1960s and rebuilt at Märkisches Ufer. The Emelerhaus reopened in 1969 as one of the few luxury restaurants in East Berlin and was well visited until the reunion of East and West Berlin, when it went out of business and had to close.
1997 opened art’otel berlin mitte in Wallstraße 70-73 in Berlin. The landmark Ermelerhaus forms a part of the hotel complex, in which private celebrations and banquets are being held. This hotel is a true homage to the German artist Georg Baselitz and contains an art collection of 328 graphic works which are on display throughout the hotel. The art’otel berlin mitte now offers guests a great combination of original art, historic elements, contemporary design and friendly service.
