Hotel Bayerischer Hof

The pandemic has at least one positive side: we have learned to recognize and appreciate those local things in our vicinity. At the same time we are yearning to travel and experience something new.

The hurdles to enter Bavaria are falling again and Munich’s top address is looking forward to welcoming its guests from neighbouring Switzerland. Bayerischer Hof – a hotel that is synonymous with tradition and simultaneously a sustainable modern era – made use of the time and is waiting with several new features.

Hotel owner, Innegrit Volkhardt, renowned for her passion for change and innovation, has now completed the seventh construction project in Hotel Bayerischer Hof. After converting the “Garden” and “Atelier” restaurants, the Cinema Lounge and the Palaishall, she devoted herself to the restructuring of the south and north wing. Four storeys were demolished and five floors were rebuilt including a Penthouse Garden Suite. The well-known interior designer, art collector and antique trader, Axel Vervoordt, from Belgium, with whom the head of the hotel has already collaborated successfully for 10 years, again gave the hotel the perfect fitting touch: quiet and discrete, while remaining sophisticated and chic. His concepts for the rooms and suites have a comfortable and authentic effect.

The light plays with the colours of the room, minimalistic furniture and natural pigments provide a feeling of authenticity and earthiness. You feel an immense sense of calm – right in the middle of the city.

His specific way of approaching tradition and his respect for development were also apparent in Vervoordt’s subsequent project – the restructuring of the “Palais Keller” restaurant – in which he again created something extraordinary: he puts his stamp on his creations by combining the warm tradition of hospitality in Hotel Bayerischer Hof with exciting, contemporary accents.

And the subject of sustainability is also reflected in his designs – Materials such as stone and old wood have been carefully selected and integrated.

Vervoordt’s sensibility to historic structures, his efforts also being highly esteemed by famous persons such as Sting or Robert de Niro, most recently gave the “Palais Montgelas” its distinctive style. The fine and delicate choice of colours and materials provide the historic rooms with a new lustre. A perfect ambient for all festivities and celebrations that had been postponed. And talking of celebrations and culinary delights: The Guide Michelin has again just awarded the “Atelier” restaurant in Hotel Bayerischer Hof with three Michelin Stars. Chef de cuisine, Jan Hartwig, was also named “Chef of the year 2021” by the Restaurant and Hotel guide “Der Grosse Guide”. | Photos Copyrights: Daniel Schvarcz, Benjamin Monn
