May Day is traditionally when the warmer weather begins and trees and flowers start to blossom. This time of the year is said to be a time of love, romance and optimism. People celebrate the coming of summer with lots of different customs that are expressions of joy and hope after a long winter….We’re meant to sing, dance and put flowers garlands in our hair and, if the mood takes us……to even break out in a bit of Morris Dancing! (maybe that’s a tad bit too far!)
In line with the May Day vibe we’re reflecting on the old and the new. Firstly the birthdays…….
Exactly 1 month ago, Oddfellows On The Park, Manchester celebrated its 1st Birthday and at the end of May, The Hotel Palace, Berlin celebrates its 50th Birthday. But we have a lot more to celebrate this month:
- A Royal Wedding
- A hosted trip to Frankfurt
- A super educational trip to showcase the Hotel Palace in Berlin
And two Bank Holiday Weekends…so definitely an excuse for a party!

For 2000 years we have celebrated food at this time of year and what better way that a Traditional Afternoon Picnic.

May – an important month at the Hotel Palace, Berlin:
The BIG 50th Birthday approaches….The Hotel Palace Berlin opened its doors on 28 May 1968 with 188 bedrooms and suites. Karl Heinz Pepper, the owner of the hotel, was joined by big names from politics, economy and culture to help celebrate the grand opening. Besides the rooms and suites, the new hotel offered banquet halls, a restaurant, a grill and a cocktail bar. It was unique in its style and design and formed part of the Europa-Centre which opened in 1965 as Europe’s first shopping mall.
