Hotel Europa is a 2022 two-part German television miniseries directed by Thorsten Schmidt. The miniseries is based on true events and describes how Fritz Dreesen's family ran a highly renowned hotel in Bad Godesberg after the First World War. Guests such as Marlene Dietrich, Charlie Chaplin, and Gustav Stresemann stayed here, but also a man registered under the name of "stateless writer" named Adolf Hitler. Fritz and Maria Dreesen's hotel lived through the Roaring Twenties as well as the National Socialist era including all the dramatic twists and turns in politics and society. Meanwhile, the son Emil, who has returned from the war, processes his experiences in his mental baggage, which makes him susceptible to blackmail.
The following weapons were used in the television series Hotel Europa:
Capitaine Escoffier (David Berton) uses a Luger P08 in the first episode.
