May 19, 2022 – Extensive renovation of the first 5-star hotel in Saxony

Hotel Taschenbergpalais Kempinski Dresden will be extensively renovated in 2023. In 1995, the traditional hotel was opened as the first five-star hotel in Saxony and has since offered its guests a luxurious comfortable atmosphere in Dresden’s best historical location.

Now, the Hotel Taschenbergpalais Kempinski Dresden lobby and rooms as well as the Café Vestibül are being extensively renovated according to the highest standards of contemporary and luxurious interior design and equipped with new highlights. At the same time, the technical installations are also being modernised under ESG aspects.

This extensive work cannot be carried out during ongoing operations. Therefore, the Hotel Taschenbergpalais Kempinski Dresden will close its doors for around ten months from 4 January 2023. A reopening is expected to take place in November 2023, so that the first guests can enjoy a stay in the new exclusive rooms in the Advent season 2023.

The hotel’s staff will remain on board during the renovation period, so that they can welcome guests as usual when the hotel reopens.

Markus Hilzinger, Studio Berlin, who has already accompanied several renovations of prestigious five-star hotels, acts as design author and interior designer. The lighting design is in the hands of Kardorff Ingenieure Lichtplanung from Berlin. Ronald Hetzke, hp developments, was chosen, as an experienced hotel planner, for the project management, and TSSB Architekten is also accompanying the renovation work on the culturally significant building.

The renovation activities, which also serve to preserve the value of the historical property, were decided by its owners, the RFR Group from Frankfurt and the RAG Foundation in Essen, in close cooperation with Kempinski. The owners as well as Kempinski are aware of the great cultural significance of the Taschenbergpalais.

For this reason, the highest attention is being paid to a modern appearance of the hotel area while at the same time taking into account and preserving the origin and tradition of the house. With the façade and the spa area having already been renovated in recent years and the Kastenmeiers restaurant having also moved in, the renovation work, now scheduled for the coming year, will be the crowning glory.
