History: In 1907, the collection of individual buildings of the hotel was eventually incorporated in the neo-baroque “Gandhotel Pupp”. Years 1922-23 were the climax of construction and modernization of the entire hotel. Every room received its own bathroom with warm and cold water. The ballroom is a grand venue for balls and similar parties. In the last 200 years there was hardly a famous visitor to the city, who wouldn’t come to the world famous hotel. Some of the honoured guests of the 18th century were, for example: musical composer Johann Sebastian Bach; Russian Tsar Peter the Great; founder of the modern balneology Dr. David Becher; Prussian King Friedrich I., Gottfried Wilhelm Leibnitz or Austrian Empress Marie Teresie of Habsburg and the famous German chancellor Otto von Bismark.
