The hotel is managed by Regina Tiedemann. Business is not doing well. Who wants to go on vacation in a town where children vanish? Regina seems to spend the best part of her day standing alone behind the reception desk waiting for guests. But guests don’t come. Except the Stranger. The strange man in dirty clothing rents room 8.
Ulrich Nielsen interrogates Regina here, and they get into an argument that opens up old wounds. For years, Ulrich has been convinced that Regina had accused him of raping Katharina in 1986. But that’s not true. It was Hannah.
The Waldhotel used to be the estate of the Doppler family.
