The Excelsior Ernst is one of the hotels on our list, which we will strive to research in the near future. It has played a major role in the history of German hospitality and we will supply you with its story, which started in 1863, when this line appeared:
"I am honoured to hereby announce, to this esteemed local and non-local audience, that as of this day, my hotel has now been opened."
Carl Ernst, "Royal Court Restorer at Central Train Station",
(Cologne daily paper on May 16th, 1863)
