Morey's Piers plays host to German nobility

Some very special guests visited the Wildwoods and Morey's Piers over the weekend, and it's probably safe to say that they weren't in town to scout out the competition for the upcoming Curley Fry Festival.

(Then again, ya never know...)

German Baron, Baroness, and Family Visit Morey's Piers 

WILDWOOD – Morey’s Piers was proud to host European nobility on Sunday, May 8, 2011. Baroness Caroline von Landsberg-Velen of Haren, Germany, her husband Friedhelm von Landsberg-Velen and their three children spent a night in the penthouse of the Pan American Hotel and enjoyed some down time on the Wildwood Boardwalk.

Arriving Sunday evening, the Baroness and family were welcomed to Morey’s Piers with traditional German music and a champagne toast on the Giant Wheel. Executive Chef Walter Jurusz served hor d’oeuvres along with some iconic Boardwalk appetizers including Curley’s fries.

The noble family then enjoyed a horse drawn carriage ride around Cape May with Will and Janice Morey and their sons, Will B. and Kyle, followed by dinner at the Washington Inn.

“We visited their park in 2009 and they were such great hosts. They gave us the whole treatment,” said Will B. Morey, Waterpark Area Manager. “We’re honored to return the gesture and host the Baroness and family at our facility.”

Baroness Caroline von Landsberg-Velen, a former IAAPA board member, and her husband run a “vacation and adventure paradise” in the heart of the Emsland region of Germany. Schloss Dankern Holiday Centre surrounds historic moated castle Dankern and Dankern Lake. The park offers 150 play, leisure and sporting activities along with 750 holiday bungalows for guests to rent for a relaxing stay. The castle and surrounding lands have been in the von Landsberg-Velen family for over 150 years.
