IntercityHotel lands in Switzerland

by | 12 Dec 2021 | Design, News

German hotel group Deutsche Hospitality is celebrating the arrival of the Matteo Thun-designed IntercityHotel Zürich Airport, its inaugural Swiss property.

Deutsche Hospitality’s midscale brand has been rolled out to another country as part of its ongoing expansion programme.

Entering the Swiss market

Deutsche Hospitality, which is headquartered in Frankfurt, is continuing to grow across the DACH region and beyond. In collaboration with developer Necron, the ambitious hotel group has now successfully opened the first IntercityHotel-branded property in Switzerland.

IntercityHotel Zürich Airport is a 260-key scheme in the municipality of Rümlang, just ten minutes away from the airport and 15 minutes from the city centre.

“Switzerland boasts many top locations, and these are of considerable interest to IntercityHotel,” said Deutsche Hospitality’s CEO Marcus Bernhardt. “This first hotel in Zürich has allowed us to create a home for travellers in a city which is one of Europe’s most important economic hubs, as well as being a key cultural metropolis.

“Today’s IntercityHotel launch marks the first foray into the Swiss market for this particular brand, but it also sends out a strong signal that further locations in the country will be a highly attractive proposition for all Deutsche Hospitality brands.”

A look inside the property

IntercityHotel Zürich Airport features a restaurant, a bar, a gym, a spa, 450 sq m of conferencing facilities and 150 parking spaces. In keeping with all of the brand’s latest-generation hotels around the world, moreover, it boasts stylish interior design by Matteo Thun.

“The highly detailed and professional collaboration that has taken place between Deutsche Hospitality and Necron has enabled a functional and sustainable 15,000 sq m hotel project to be realised in only three years,” said Gerard van Liempt, CEO of Necron. “We are proud of the successful construction works and confident that Deutsche Hospitality and Necron will be pursuing more joint projects in the near future.”

Deutsche Hospitality is already working towards opening another Swiss scheme, IntercityHotel Geneva Airport, in 2023.
