Willem Dirks Bakker built our beautiful mansion in 1898 and right from the beginning of the Borkum tourism the Standhotel Hohenzollern set standards in the ligue of the most exclusive hotels on the so called „Kaiserstrasse“. During the turn of the century – in Germany the „Kaiserzeit“ – the high society of German empire spent their summer holidays in those exclusive accommodations on Borkum island. 1912 Karl Struck bought the hotel and took over as the hotel director. After World War II it became shelter for many refugees and the was a youth hostel until it was fully restored and reopenined as a Hotel in 2006.
Enjoy a pleasant stay in one of the most historical and beautiful and feel the the touch of wilhelminian time.
