This hotel used to be one of countless garrisons of the East German Border Troops (DDR-Grenztruppen) that line the former border between East and West Germany.
Originally, two three-floor standard barracks were built for the military, along with a dog kennel, an ammunition bunker, garages and various other buildings. The buildings were used by different units of the border troops, including the regional command of the signals intelligence unit.
More than ten years after it was abandoned by the military, a hotel was
opened in one of the two buildings in 2004. The hotel was abandoned in 2014. The other buildings are being used for apartments and storage. There also is a music club based here.
