2300 invited guests celebrated in the ADLON

For the 66th time, the Federal Press Conference invited one of the most renowned balls in Germany - the Federal Press Ball. A rendezvous of politics, business and showbiz. What is more suitable for such a historic ball than party location, as the legendary Hotel Adlon in Berlin. String music and techno songs, oysters and currywurst, politics and waltz - here a multitude of contrasts united.

Until the early morning hours a glittering ball night was celebrated. The guests had the opportunity to enjoy culinary delicacies in the various themed restaurants, to sip champagne and have a great chat. Federal President Steinmeier had the pleasure, for the first time together with his wife Elke Büdenbender, to open the ball with a traditional waltz.

Of course, with so much glamor, APA should not be missed. Subdued yet distinctive, APA's sophisticated signage and branding concept has now been implemented for the third year in a row. We congratulate the head of organization Nadja Meister for an impressive and successful ball night. Under the direction of General Manager Matthias Al Amiry, the ADLON Kempinski team has ensured that the Hotel Adlon lives up to its reputation as one of the best hotels in Europe.
