"Where God is, there is a future" - the Pope at Hotel Aquino

Pope Benedict XVI (2005-2013) and his delegation honoured the Hotel Aquino Berlin with their visit as part of the Apostolic Journey (external link, pdf) under the motto "Where God is, there is the future" in September 2011. In the library of the Catholic Office, he met Chancellor Angela Merkel and gave his highly acclaimed speech to the German Bundestag. That same evening, he celebrated a Holy Mass in Berlin's Olympic Stadium with more than 60,000 faithful.


Church of St. Thomas Aquinas on the Catholic Yards, right next to the hotel.

The Church of St. Thomas Aquinas is located on the grounds of Berlin's "Catholic Yards", framed by the Catholic Academy, the Hotel & Conference Centre and the Secretariat of the German Bishops. It was consecrated in 1999 and since then has been an invitation to worship and prayer in the centre of Berlin. Whether for silent prayer or the celebration of Holy Mass, whether for a baptism or a wedding, as a guest of our hotel you are always welcome in the Church of St. Thomas Aquinas.
