Past, Present & Future

Over 150 years old, The Grand Hotel is a beautiful, historic 3-story building located in downtown New Ulm. The first hotel in the city, the Grand (then known as the Minnesota Haus) was built in 1856 by Phillipp H. Gross.

The building has undergone many changes since then, including being converted into the Grand Kabaret, a entertainment bar showcasing live music.

The Grand also has an arts and culture center on the 2nd and 3rd floor of the Grand Hotel. Once construction is completed we will provide a space for artists and the public to come together.

Stop by the Grand to see the building progress, and talk to staff about the project, or contact us at For more information on the Grand Hotel and New Ulm check out our Placeography.

Thank you for visiting us and stop by again soon!
