Appointed by German real estate company Bayerische Hausbau, Rosewood Hotels & Resorts is managing Rosewood Munich, opening in early 2023. This is the brand’s first property in Germany and seventh property in Europe.
Rosewood Munich will be situated on Kardinal-Faulhaber-Strasse in the heart of the historic city centre, between two landmark historical buildings – the former headquarters of the 19th-Century State Bank of Bavaria and the 18th-Century Palais Nehuhaus-Preysing. The hotel is walking distance from several of the city’s most popular sites and destinations, including central Marienplatz Square, the Residenz City Palace, Bavarian State Opera, and the Maximilian- and Theatinerstrabe shopping districts.
Rosewood Munich will blend traditional German architecture with modern and contemporary elements, creating a warm and convivial atmosphere that captures the spirit of the destination. The hotel will offer 132 spacious guest rooms and suites designed to complement the property’s original façade and well-preserved stairways, which contribute to Munich’s ensemble of historical buildings.
The property will boast an inviting lobby lounge and two dining venues, which include a full service restaurant and a vibrant bar. Rosewood Munich will also feature a full service spa, housing five treatments rooms, as well as an indoor pool and fitness area. Additionally, the hotel will include extensive meetings and events spaces to accommodate a variety of private gatherings, conferences and special events for up to 400 guests.
“With its rich history and distinct culture, Munich is an ideal destination for Rosewood’s ever-expanding global portfolio, and we are thrilled to bring our guiding ‘A Sense of Place’ philosophy to this dynamic city,” says Sonia Cheng, chief executive officer of Rosewood Hotel Group. “Combining the long standing traditions and heritage of Bavaria with the dynamism of modern Germany, Munich offers guests a unique glimpse into the distinct character of the region and gifts all who visit access to a fascinating European adventure, making it the perfect destination for Rosewood’s affluential explorers seeking authentic and meaningful travel experiences.”
“We are pleased to have gained an internationally renowned partner for our project in Rosewood Hotels & Resorts. The objective of the project is to offer the city an entirely new hotel experience: a hotel in the most exclusive hotel segment that will provide a contemporary interpretation of the historical charm of the buildings,” says Dr. Hermann Brandstetter, CFO Bayerische Hausbau.
“We want to enhance the historical part of Munich with a unique hotel concept and open the doors of the buildings, with their unmistakable historical charm, to both international guests and the people of Munich – the restaurant, the bar and the spa will, of course, also extend a warm welcome to Munich’s residents.”
