Tradition, Community, Meeting point, Personality – these are only a few words to describe
the institution of the hotel „Zum Dorfbrunnen“.
Our history dates back to the year of 1977.
The mayor and contractor Klaus Mäs decided to creat a place to relax
and indulge the inhabitants of the town after one of the oldest restaurants was closed.
After the demolition of the storehouses and excavations of the huge area of around 2000 m²,
the diligent workers accomplished the first step.
The goal was quite high, as to this time the opening date was already set:
On November, 15th 1978 the doors of the new hotel and restaurant
were opened for the first time.
Thanks to the efforts of many local companies and the staff of the construction company Klaus Mäs, the commitment of the Mäs family and the support of the neighborhood, this property has been realized in such a short time. Since then, the restaurant has been a meeting place for all guests.
We did not think of such a huge rush of guests to our hotel,
this is why we needed more space for festivities and events.
In a short time, two more restaurants, club rooms, a large event hall
and three bowling alleys have been built. As we not only had guests from
our neighbourhood but also from different cities, we built the first six guest rooms
to present our hospitality to guests from around the world.
In this year, our house attracts high-ranked international politicians.
The former chancellor of Germany, Helmut Kohl, honours our house with a visit
of the entire fraction of the CDU in the Federal Parliament.
Angela Merkel, Edmund Stoiber, Theo Waigel, Wolfgang Schäuble
and many more cause a media-hype which lasted for weeks.
The enthusiam still lasts – this allows us to welcome
the fraction with more than 300 people every year.
To match the rising demand of guests in our hotel, we built 12 more guest rooms
This also marks the first step towards our international character.
14 more guest rooms had to be built – this made our Hotel & Restaurant „Zum Dorfbrunnen“
the largest Hotel in the city of Bornheim.
Peter-Heinz Dieter Mäs becomes director.
The youngest son of Klaus Mäs Peter-Heinz Dieter Mäs buys the Hotel & Restaurant
„Zum Dorfbrunnen“ and leads the business since then.
Also new are the tasteful buffet on Sundays and Festive days.
At these events we provide our guests with quality which reminds one of days at grandmother’s.
35 years our existence is a reason to celebrate. Guests and friends are invited to this anniversary and encouraged to continue this successful story.
In the third generation, daughter Cathrin Maes takes over the family business. The graduated business administrator gained many experiences through working in well-known companies in order to bring this profitably into the future of the established and renowned hotel restaurant. We’re looking forward to it!
The story of success continues, even today we are looking excitedly towards our 40th anniversary.
