The Hotel Europäische Hof, was built in 1845 as a spa hotel. It was on Königsteiner Strasse. In 1855, the building was purchased by Mr. Phillip Colloseus. This was before tenant of the Kurhaus at the old spa park. In 1860, the so-called "Russian Year", many Russians were guests at the hotel, such as poet Ivan Sergeyevich Turgenev.
Until 1909, the European Court consisted of two buildings separated by a small garden. In 1911, however, an intermediate structure was added to connect the two buildings. Furthermore, the two buildings were increased by another 1-2 storeys.
In the two world wars the building was confiscated by the respective occupiers. After the First World War, the French lived there, then in the Second World War the Americans. In 1959 the building was returned to the Confederation, which immediately sold it. In 1965 it was demolished and replaced by a modern building. Today there is a residential building and a small commercial space, which was used by the drugstore chain Schlecker until the summer of 2012.
Until demolition in 1965, the building had a huge garden. This has been completely replaced by modern block development.
