Former German bunker to be transformed into a luxury hotel

Published on : Wednesday, October 16, 2019

St. Pauli bunker in Germany is going to be transformed into a luxury hotel- nhow hotel.

 

The bunker was used for air defence during World War II. Around 30,000 Hamburg residents had taken shelter inside the bunker during the war. The bunker was constructed in only 300 days by over 1,000 labourers from concentration camps.

 

 

The bunker was supposed to be destroyed during the World War but due to its 3.5 metre thick walls, it was left standing. The bunker was once used for hosting art and musical events and presently, it houses the nightclub Uebel and Gefahrlich.

 

 

As part of the project, five stories in the form of a pyramid will be created at the St. Pauli Bunker. A spectacular rooftop garden will also be created. The garden will house 4,700 plants once completed.  A dedicated space for culture, exhibitions and a hall for sports and entertainment would also be made.

 

 

The NH Hotel Group has been awarded the contract for the operation of the new hotel in the bunker with EHP Erste Hanseatische Projektmanagement GmbH and client Matzen.

 

 

The hotel will have 136 rooms, including a coffee shop, a bar and a restaurant. The hotel is set to be opened in mid-202.

 

 

The managing director of the Northern Europe of the NH Hotel Group, Maarten Markus, said that it was definitely a matter of pride for the hotel group that it was involved in this project, which had a great historical significance.
