A place of breathtaking beauty and splendour awaits you in Germany`s oldest coastal spa. A place that turns hectic and stress into calmness and relaxation. Experience uniqueness at the Kempinski Grand Hotel Heiligendamm.
In 1793, upon the advice of his personal physician, Professor Dr. Samuel Gottlieb Vogel, Frederick-Francis I Duke of Mecklenburg Schwerin took his first bath in the sea at "Heiligen Damm", and this marked the birth of the first German seaside resort.
Vogel recognized the healing effect of sea water on a series of illnesses. But the main advantages in favour of the location of Heiligendamm were of a climatic nature, such as air that has little dust and is moist, low variations in temperature, the surrounding lush beech forests, as well as the lack of tides. In the years following its foundation, there was a great deal of building done at "Heiligen Damm" in order to do justice to the rising popularity of the seaside resort. Between 1793 and 1870, the architects, Johann Christoph Heinrich von Seydwitz, Carl Theodor Severin and Gustav Adolph Demmler, created a unique, classical work of art consisting of bathing and lodging houses.
In 1823 the first racecourse on the European continent was opened between Heiligendamm and Doberan was thus the trophy of German horse-racing. In 1862, the narrow-gauge railway which joined Doberan to Heiligendamm was officially opened. This stretch of railway was extended to Kühlungsborn in 1910 and still operates under steam today.Since its foundation, Heiligendamm was the most elegant seaside resort in Germany. European high nobility, including the Tsar's family, spent their summer holidays here. Heiligendam remained an exclusive spa into the thirties of the 20th century, with many prominent guests. At that time in society, it was considered a must to have been there at least once in a person's life. After World War II, Heiligendamm's buildings were used as a sanatorium and a place to convalesce.
In 1996, the Fundus Group, located in Cologne, purchased the "white town by the sea". After extensive renovations, the opening of the Kempinski Grand Hotel Heiligendamm in the spring of 2003 will mark the rebirth of this exclusive spa.
The Kempinski Grand Hotel Heiligendamm opened on 1st of June 2003 after three years of careful reconstruction work and marked the rebirth of Germany's oldest sea spread.
