Hilke Flebbe of Klassik Aldstadt Hotel Lubeck Germany speaking on Creating a Beautiful Legacy out of Grief - Creative Conversations podcast with Yang-May Ooi

Hilke Flebbe was just starting her law degree at Cambridge when she received the sudden and terrible news that her mother had died. At age 22, Hilke was left alone in the world – and with an unfinished old hotel that her mother had been restoring in Lubeck, Germany. Not only that, but she was faced with inheriting her mother’s debts which ran to millions of Euros. She had the chance to walk away but she chose to fulfil her mother’s dream. Klassik Altstadt Hotel in the heart of Lubeck became her destiny – and now her legacy to her son. Hilke joins podcast host Yang-May Ooi on this episode of Creative Conversations to share her moving and inspiring story.
