Central Post Office

To cement Neustadt’s position as the city’s new political and administrative centre, the imperial government decided to move Strasbourg’s central post office from Place de la Cathédrale to the new town. The Hôtel des Postes was constructed between 1896 and 1899 by architects Ernst Hake (1844-1925) and Ewald von Rechenberg who chose to break away from the Renaissance Revival style of the institutional buildings around Place de la République. The Secretary of State for the post office and Emperor Wilhelm II preferred to have a Gothic Revival building as a symbol of the city’s German roots. The building was decorated with statues of three German emperors, all decapitated on the night of 20 November 19181.
