The History of the Hotel Birke begins with a well Known Master wheel builder. He was fed-up with the City and decided to move near the sea. With him moved a few crofters, and together they founded the village of Hasseldieksdamm in green surroundings near the sea. In 1773 he bought a cottage with a cabbage farm from an auction to enjoy his time.

The village grew and the cabbage farm could not provide the owner with enough profit margin he decided with his wife to open up an inn and guesthouse. In the year 1802 he was awarded from the Danish Kingdom treasury the excise license. At that time the chief cook got famous in the city for her pancakes, she would throw then high in the air and catch them again.
When she was cooking them loads of people from Kiel would take a walk at the weekend just to try the lovely pancakes. So the name “Pannekokenkrog” was created.

1902 they replaced the cottage with a half-timbering house with 20 hotel rooms, a dancehall, a beergarden and a riding-stable. The new name was called “Waldesruh”.

At the end of the 2nd world war the English took over the building. 1957 Eduard and Gertrud Birke bought the catering trade Waldesruh and redecorated and modernized it. The family built it up as a famous trip- and dance location. In 1971 the family Birke leased it and built the hotel birke on the plot- Waldesruh with 13 rooms and 20 beds.

In the year 1979 the son Rainer Birke took it over with 20 rooms and 31 beds. He ran the hotel so well, that he could extend the hotel in 1981 to 33 rooms and 49 beds. Just after that in the year 1983 he extended the hotel again, so he had now 39 rooms and 59 beds, one year later he managed to build 18 rooms more, a sauna, a solarium, a gym, a lift, a hotel Bar and a conference room.

The lease for the catering trade Waldesruh was renewed and turned into new apartments. Because of the big demand in the hotel Birke and for the future of the family runed business they enlarged in 2002 the hotel again. Now they had 25 air-condition rooms, an event area, a business center, the Restaurant Fischers Fritz and the Birke Spa. They finished in the winter of 2005.

So that the tradition with the celebrations could start to live again, after the lease had run out they took possession of the building and built a mirror ballroom and redecorated the Restaurant in the tradition of the house Waldesruh. Since 2006 the motto is again “if you want to celebrate a party, you celebrate the party in the hotel Birke-Waldesruh”.

We have also extended the time of opening of our Birke Spa. Because of the increasing demand we will be opening another 2 useable areas. We be also renovating the old building and from 2010 until 2015 we renovated all the standard hotel rooms in the main building.
