Once upon a time ...
Originally, the site belonged to the former curtain weaving mill as part of the Uhingen bleachery and was acquired by the Bader leather factory in Göppingen in 1938.
Rising competition, also internationally, and falling sales prevented production from being maintained profitably in the following years. It was therefore decided to cease production at the end of 1964. All employees in Uhingen were invited to continue working at the Göppingen factory.
In the following decades, the company's premises were leased to various businesses and used primarily as a storage facility.
In 2003, Thomas Bader, great-grandson of the founder of the Bader leather company, together with his wife Gabi, decided to take the former factory in a new direction.
First, a local brewery with a restaurant, event hall and beer garden was built on the site.
Gradually, the Orangery and BrennBar came into being, as well as the Hotel and the Stad’l (Barn).
Since 2017, we have had our Boathouse, too.
Even today, much of Gerber Park still reminds us of its former use.
How we think ...
Gerber Park is a family-run business.
The whole resort has its own Bader family style and is characterised by innovation and growth.
Our guests should sense an especially warm and welcoming atmosphere at
Cosiness, a demand for individuality, a break from everyday life for a few hours and the desire to enjoy a special experience time and again. This is the credo, a warm welcome at all times. Commitment and friendliness, together with creativity, flexibility, initiative, trust and mutual understanding determine how we work together as a team. Our staff are at the heart of the Gerber Park Resort. The warmth with which we greet our guests can only be achieved through a pleasant working atmosphere and interaction at eye level.
We support our staff and we really enjoy watching them grow.
We always look forward to tackling new projects.
Innovation plays an important role at Gerber Park.
Steady growth is a very special philosophy of the Bader family.
We work with first-class products from suppliers from the region, with whom we have been working in a spirit of trust for many years. Seeing the beaming smiles of our guests as a result of wonderful gastronomy and charming service is the greatest acknowledgement for us.
