History

Our clubhouse is a building where history is palpable and history is made.

Built in 1860 as a private house by the renowned architect Martin Haller for the Bielenberg family, it was bought in 1901 by the successful merchant Consul Gustav Müller. In those days the property had 14,000 m² of land, running right down to the Alster Lake and comprised an old thatched farmhouse with a cowshed and hennery, a duck pond and pastures as well as the villa.

At the end of World War II in 1945, the estate was seized by the British occupation forces and used as a British officers’ residence. It was probably then that the story of the Anglo-German Club began, as the British officers clearly felt very much at home in the lovely villa.
Following the occupation, the house was returned to the co-heirs of the Müller family, who sold it to the City of Hamburg, which in turn let it to the Anglo-German Club.
The club has owned the leasehold on the building since 1989. It is an architectural gem in a prime location, surrounded by a splendid garden and with an inviting terrace offering a superb view of the Alster.

We are convinced it will lose none of its magic in the generations to come.
