Our hotel Birke is over generations in family hands. It is run by Rainer Birke, his wife Jasmine Birke, Christian Birke and Florian Buchebner. It has been awarded the 4 star superior convention and wellness hotel of the county capital of Schleswig- Holstein in Kiel.
We are members of the Ringhotels, one of the leading private cooperative organizations for family run hotels in Germany with very high standards and individual ambience. The German hotel cooperation works intensively on its partnership with other European family run hotel cooperations in the Benelux countries, Danmark, Italy, Sweden and Switzerland. The values of the traditional local customs and trust are the most important values to the ringhotels who together over generations have accumulated great know how and experience. The motto is family enjoyment.
Also we are members of the Wellness Hotels & Resorts (WHR). The Organization is the number one address for Wellness hotels in Germany. The German and international Hotel partners from the 4 and 5 stars have been carefully chosen and are allowed to use the brand and quality stamp “the wellness tree”. Individual government inspectors control regularly among other things the innovation, generosity, improvements and sustainability of the Spa-area and the whole Hotel. Our Hotel was accepted to this organization in 2011. This membership gives us the advantage of using a treasure trove of experience through the exchange of know how and training programs with our partner hotels.
Since the 1950s our family has always expanded and modernized the company, but has always been very careful to keep tradition and modernity harmoniously in balance and to preserve the North German way of life.
The Birke Hotel is situated in the middle of Europe in Kiel the Capital city of Schleswig-Holstein.
