On 3rd February 2020, Thomas, Michael and Ann-Kathrin, managing partners of Europa-Park in Rust, were honoured with the renowned industry award "Hotelier des Jahres" (Hotelier of the year) in Berlin.
Thomas, Michael and Ann-Kathrin are the eighth generation of entrepreneurial family Mack and are responsible for the largest expansion in the 240-year long company history: The museum hotel 'Krønasår' and the new indoor water world Rulantica. The resort extension with an investment of approx. 200 million Euros has been completed on schedule last year and has led Europa-Park into a new era.
Chairman of the jury, Rolf Westermann, editor in chief of ahgz magazine, constituted the decision: "The eighth generation of the Mack family has set the course for the next decades by investing around 200 million Euros. It requires vision and bravery to take that kind of entrepreneurial risk".
