Konrad Adenauer regularly spent his holidays in Cadenabbia between 1957 and 1966. His former vacation home, Villa la Collina , built in 1899 with its 5.7 hectare park, has been used by the Konrad Adenauer Foundation as an international conference venue since 1977 . In 1990 it was expanded to include the Accademia Konrad Adenauer . Since 1992 there has been a partnership with the city of Bad Honnef , Konrad Adenauer's last place of residence.

In addition, Stendhal , Giuseppe Verdi - who wrote some arias of the Traviata here -, Queen Victoria , Tsar Nicholas II and Kaiser Wilhelm II have already spent their holidays here.

Arthur Schnitzler mentions the cemetery of Cadenabbia in his novel The Path to the Open (1908): “And while he was [...] dawning, [...] he saw a lot of shimmering crosses rising up on tiny hills [...] and a reddish-yellow puppet sun shone about it. Suddenly this picture meant the cemetery of Cadenabbia. Georg sat like a little boy on the stone wall and suddenly turned his gaze down to the lake. "
