BLANKENESE NEW YEAR’S RECEPTION
“Hanseatic noblesse governed the Hotel Louis C. Jacob”
The New Year’s Reception at the Hotel Louis C. Jacob in Blankenese is probably the most traditional and high-class New Year’s reception in all of northern Germany. Every year, around 850 decision-makers from the world of politics, business and society accept the invitation issued by Hamburger Klönschnack magazine. The list of those giving the speeches to welcome the New Year always reads like a who’s who of German politics, and has so far included politicians as famous as Joachim Gauck, Franz Müntefering, Hans Eichel, Otto Schily, Klaus Wowereit, Dr Guido Westerwelle, Christian Wulff and Dr Rita Süssmuth.
Since 2011, hesse und hallermann PR has been in charge of the press relations for the Blankenese New Year’s reception, which nets major reports in the regional and the national press every year – both in the politics sections and in the colourful society sections.
