King Ludwig I, who brought Bavaria into the modern world of states, desired a comfortable accommodation for his personal guests and visiting dignitaries. In 1839 the Ritter (knight) Joseph Anton von Maffei purchased the guesthouse located on the Promenade Platz and commissioned architect Friedrich von Gärtner to build a hotel, opening two years later. The hotel was the showplace of the Bavarian capital in the royal district of the old town just blocks from the Residence Palace. The hotel was purchased in 1897 by Herrmann Volkhardt and has been in the Volkhardt family ever since. The old Bayerischer Hof was nearly leveled in allied bombing of Munich in April of 1944. Rebuilt after the war, more exclusive than before, the Bayerischer Hof was incorporated with the former Palais Montgelas next door and reopened for the Munich Olympics of 1972, becoming a member of "The Leading Hotels of the World" and the first German hotel among the "Preferred Hotels and Resorts Worldwide" in 1974.
