Hotel group IHG has opened two new Hotel Indigo hotels in Germany. Hotel Indigo Dresden – Wettiner Platz and Hotel Indigo Berlin – East Side Gallery reflect local architecture and culture. Both hotels are part of the group’s large expansion plans in Europe.
Hotel Indigo Dresden – Wettiner Platz is the brand’s first hotel in Saxony. It is next door to striking baroque architecture and a host of outdoor activities, providing the perfect location for guests looking to discover a culture rich part of Germany. Meanwhile, the one in Berlin overlooks the world’s largest open air gallery, complete with 1.3 km of original art pieces.
The 132-key hotel at Dresden – Wettiner Platz is close to city centre; Brühl’s Terrace, nicknamed the ‘The Balcony of Europe’, which stretches along the shore of the river Elbe; Kraftwerk Mitte and , the Academy Of Fine Arts in Dresden, HfBK Dresden, that occupies a glorious neo-Renaissance building featuring a beautiful glass dome.
Hotel Indigo Berlin – East Side Gallery is in a prime location for guests to explore the local neighbourhood. Nearby attractions include Oberbaumbrücke, the former checkpoint between East and West Berlin and Wrangelkiez, an area that forms part of Kreuzberg, with an array of unique shops, cafes and bars. Wrangelkiez, is also famed for its flamboyant street art, curated by some internationally renowned street artists.
The hotel brand is vastly expanding in tier two cities across Europe. It has more than 105 properties worldwide, with Hotel Indigo Chester waiting in the wings for its unveiling later this month.
