The new hotel will offer 336 beds in 100 rooms on five floors.
The Old Town (Altstadt) and city center are easily accessible due to the project’s walking-friendly location close to the central station as well as excellent public transport connections. Within immediate proximity is the new district Bahnstadt with its numerous shopping options.
Hannes Spanring, CEO of the MEININGER Group said, “We are very happy that we will open our new MEININGER hotel in such a history-charged city. The university town of Heidelberg is an outstanding addition to the already substantial MEININGER portfolio within Germany.”
