Just in time for Oktoberfest: NH Collection München Bavaria launches
The new NH Collection München Bavaria in the heart of Bavaria’s capital
NH Hotels launches its sixth hotel in Munich with the new NH Collection München Bavaria
Home to the former NH München Deutscher Kaiser, Munich’s first skyscraper directly next to the main train station and close to many of the city’s sights, is still one of the tallest buildings in the city centre.
Currently, the building is undergoing the final stages of a complete renovation worth around € 34 million. The property’s new elegant urban style will be a perfect combination of local flair and the NH Collection’s premium standards.
The entire area around the main station is undergoing a comprehensive redesign and the NH Collection München Bavaria further upgrades the district.
Bringing the first NH Collection hotel to Munich
At the end of August 2019, the NH Collection München Bavaria will be the first in Munich, and the eighth premium brand, to open in Germany.
The high-quality conversion covers the entire interior on 16 floors, from the lobby to the 219 rooms, the restaurant and bar and the eleven flexible conference rooms.
With more than 400 sqm of event space on the second and third floor, meetings and events with up to 200 participants can be held.
The “Alpenblick” meeting room, which sits 95 meters above the city offers a splendid view of Munich and the mountains, is the hotel’s secret highlight.
Of course, guests booking a room here will be able to enjoy equally stunning views over the bustling city and its many famous sights.
The new NH Collection Munich Bavaria
At an exclusive pre-opening event on June 28, 2019, Maarten Markus, Managing Director Northern Europe of the NH Hotel Group, and Christian Gindele, General Manager of the NH Collection Munich Bavaria, gave selected guests a first glimpse of the new hotel.
Maarten Markus says about the upcoming launch: “This opening in Munich is very close to my heart. The Bavarian metropolis with its strong economic power and upmarket lifestyle fits perfectly into our strategy. Our goal of expanding the premium brand NH Collection in the German market is taking a huge step forward with this opening. By repositioning deHotels from being a core brand for NH Hotels to making it the premium brand NH Collection, we are sending a visible signal, beyond Germany, which makes me very proud.”
Christian Gindele affirms: “To regularly exceed our guests’ expectations and to make their stay memorable, from check-in to check-out, that’s our mission. With a motivated and respectful team which values mutual support, the high expectations can be met all while having fun at work – that’s something I pay special attention to.”
“Thanks to our central location and the unique view over all of Munich as well as exceptional service on all levels, we offer business and leisure travellers something special at an attractive price in one of Germany’s most beautiful cities,” Mr Gindele went on to say.
Bringing heritage to life through design
The Madrid-based architectural firm TBC Interiorismo, headed by Mercedes Isasa, is responsible for the well thought-out design, which is based on regional characteristics, the history and cultural developments of the Isar metropolis.
The design elements in light beige are interrupted by red contrast points and combined with fine wood accents for a modern, inviting look. This color scheme alludes to the discrepancy between the heavy cast-iron landmarks which developed during industrialization, such as the Hackerbrücke or the Bavaria statue, and the baroque and elegant Munich Old Town.
The namesake and source of inspiration for this hotel is one of Munich’s most famous landmarks, the secular patron of Bavaria, Bavaria. Her imposing bronze statue towers over the nearby Theresienwiese and is a tourist magnet.
