Unless you're German, you've probably never heard of Mannheim, located in Germany's Palatinate region. It's time then to discover this multifaceted city set on the confluence of two rivers, and boasting one of Europe's largest inland ports! Mannheim takes great pride in its industrial prowess, which has attracted global giants like Daimler, Caterpillar, Unilever, ABB, Siemens, IBM, Roche, and many more to set-up their factories here. But that's not all: thanks to first-rate comedians, famous German musical performers and the Pop-Academy, Mannheim also stands for creativity and urbanity.
In October 2016 Radisson Blu opened up its first hotel in Mannheim, in its new Q 6 Q 7 district, offering a completely new hotel experience in the Palatinate's metropolitan city: the hotel has over 229 rooms including 13 long-stay apartments each with a kitchenette, six junior suites, three suites and one presidential suite. The German Travel Management (Verband Deutsches Reisemanagement e.V.) awarded the hotel with the Certified Star-Award for being the "Newcomer of the Year 2017" among the Business Hotels.
Design-wise the interior highlights city themes of urbanity and creativity while the use of the color blue are a reference to the Rhine and Neckar rivers. A very special feature can be found in the hotel lobby: during the construction start of the Q 6 Q 7 district, parts of the historical city wall were discovered and they now decorate the stylish entrance hall.
While the many conference rooms feature natural daylight, the bar of the Radisson Blu Hotel, Mannheim scores high with its large rooftop terrace offering spectacular panoramic views over the roofs of the city. Scroll down for a stunning visual tour of Radisson Blu's new addition!
