Where history and modern times come together

The 'Hotel Laimer Hof' History

The Hotel Laimer Hof is a Munich establishment with a long history. Built in 1890, and today a historic landmark of the City of Munich, the hotel ranks among the most storied houses in Nymphenburg

The Laimer Hof was built by local businessman Ludwig Hippmann. Hippmann was originally a stove mason but went on to invest and speculate on property in the Laim district. He built most of what is in the street and it was named the “Hippmannstrasse” in 1900. In 1886 building started and in 1890 he received the concession for the “Laimer Hof” as an Inn. The building is listed and has the number D-1-62-000-3730 as “Neurenaissance, mit Türmchen, Ende 19. Jahrhundert”.

40 Laimer Street is remodeled

Remodelling of the house located at 40 Laimer Street began in 1934: the first guest rooms turned the building into a small hotel. Since the remodel, the house also contained the first asphalt bowling alley in Munich, and thus became a favourite gathering place for Munich’s bowling enthusiasts. Over time, more and more bowling competitions, weddings, and anniversaries were celebrated at the Laimer Hof.

Fortunately, the landmark-protected, Jugendstil (art nouveau) villa survived WWII unscathed.The Reichel family continued to operate the Laimer Hof up to the third generation of Reichels, and in 1985, began the complete remodel of the exterior façade. Additional guest rooms were constructed, and other expansions of the interior were completed. In 1989, the restaurant was closed so that the family Reichel could concentrate on the operation of the hotel.

The Rösch family takes the reins at Laimer Hof

Following the sudden death of Josef Reichel’s grandson, the young couple, Sebastian Rösch and Alexandra Damm took over the Hotel Laimer Hof. At this juncture, the young hoteliers had already completed their studies at the first-class hospitality management school, “École Hotelière” in Strasbourg, and had also acquired significant hotel operations experience.

They coupled their high level of professionalism with a large dose of hospitality and geniality — and so continued the traditions established by the founders. Today, the now married couple personally greets their guests upon arrival and provides 5-star service.
