If the walls of 25 Kurfürstendamm, where Hotel Zoo stands, could talk they would tell tales of a grand boulevard that has stood the test of time. Stories not illustrated by crumbling stone statues of powerful men, but by regal facades and the lives lived behind them. From the highs of the Roaring Twenties to the lowest lows of war, they would tell the story of Berlin, with one foot firmly in the past, and the other leaping forward. First opened in 1911, Hotel Zoo has seen it all.
