For many years Park Hotel, in particular in the person of the hotel’s former Director Michael Lehmann, has been an active member of the Support Association for the Monument to the Battle of the Nations. The Monument to the Battle of the Nations is the most imposing emblem of the City of Leipzig, commemorating one of the most important events in European history together with its countless victims. For our guests from this country and abroad a visit to the Monument to the Battle of the Nations is an absolute must. Our Park Hotel has a very special relationship with the Monument to the Battle of the Nations, in that the hotel was officially opened as a grand hotel on 18 October 1913, the same day on which the Monument to the Battle of the Nations was inaugurated on the occasion of the centenary of the battle, which took place near Leipzig. At the time the new Park Hotel served above all to provide accommodation for the guests at the celebrations accompanying the inauguration of the monument. On the occasion of the Park Hotel’s centenary in the year 2013, a number of promotions were also arranged in conjunction with the simultaneous centenary of the Monument to the Battle of the Nations. Visitors to the anniversary celebrations were able to book special packages, or enjoy the kind of accommodation that would have been typical 100 years earlier. Since 2010 Michael Lehmann has been on the Board of Trustees of the Support Association for the Monument to the Battle of the Nations, which enables him to provide direct and personal support. Among other contributions, since that time the board has held its meetings at the Park Hotel. In addition, every year the hotel purchases the sponsorship certificate issued by the support association.
In the summer of 2017 Astrid Froß, Director of the newly built “Seepferdchen” (seahorse) day nursery, noticed the emblem on the facade of Seaside Park Hotel – also a seahorse. On the principle of there’s no harm in asking, Astrid Froß called Gitta Jonek, the current Sales Manager of Park Hotel, and an initial meeting was arranged. The two got on well from the beginning and agreed that their respective facilities were a good match for each other. A cooperation agreement was signed at the end of September, to coincide with the topping-out ceremony of the day nursery. This was the start of a great partnership between the PARK HOTEL and the SEEPFERDCHEN day nursery. After Sven, the Park Hotel seahorse, was presented to the day nursery on the occasion of the topping-out ceremony in October, the nursery received a further pleasant surprise on 12.12.17. During a VIP customer event to celebrate the completion of the renovation work to the Park Hotel and in the presence of owner Gregor Gerlach, the amount of €2,500 was collected in the course of an auction. The articles auctioned were donated by a number of local cooperation partners, as well as the German Seaside Hotels organisation and Park Hotel Leipzig itself, with all the proceeds going to the day nursery. Hotel Director Michael Lehmann presented the symbolic cheque to Christine Freidinger, Manager of Zwergenland Leipzig gGmbH, in the presence of the day nursery’s team as well as Gitta Jonek and Sophie Albani, Sales & Marketing Managers of the Park Hotel. On the occasion of the opening of the Seepferdchen day nursery in January 2018 all the children were presented with their own small inflatable seahorse by Sophie Albani and Nicole Rieschel (Director Reservations). A range of further activities involving both the children of the day nursery and the staff of the hotel are already in the pipeline.
