Hotel Indigo® opens new hotels in two of Germany’s Culture Capitals

Hotel Indigo®  guestroom
Boutique hotel brand unveils new hotels in Berlin and Dresden, each with a unique design inspired by the local architecture and culture
IHG®, one of the world’s leading hotel companies, is proud to announce the opening of new hotels in two of Germany’s most culturally rich cities, Berlin and Dresden.
Hotel Indigo® Dresden – Wettiner Plat is the brand’s first hotel in Saxony, next door to extraordinary baroque architecture and a host of outdoor activities, providing the perfect location for guests looking to discover a culture rich part of Germany.


Whilst Hotel Indigo® Berlin – East Side Gallery overlooks the world’s largest open air gallery, complete with 1.3 kilometres of original art pieces.  

Hotel Indigo® Dresden – Wettiner Platz, where baroque meets industrial design
  The 132-room Hotel Indigo® Dresden – Wettiner Platz is within walking distance to the historic centre of the city. The hotel is close to one of the city’s most famous sites, Brühl’s Terrace, nicknamed the "The Balcony of Europe", which stretches along the shore of the river Elbe. Just steps from the hotel, Kraftwerk Mitte is a former electricity plant, which has found a new life as an arts centre and regularly play host to some of the biggest DJs in Europe. Within the same neighborhood, the Academy Of Fine Arts in Dresden, HfBK Dresden, occupies a glorious neo-Renaissance building featuring a beautiful glass dome.  

Just as no places are alike, no two Hotel Indigo properties are the same. Hotel Indigo Dresden – Wettiner Platz is fully immersed in its neighbourhood, taking its design cues from Dresden’s contrasting architecture styles, from modern, industrial buildings to historical Baroque architecture. In the public areas, a modern industrial feel comes through in the use of filament bulbs, scaffold table legs, and features slabs of solid wood and use of copper and brass. Guest rooms are a contemporary take on the baroque architecture of Dresden, with wood-paneled walls and colours taking inspiration from the copper verdigris (the blue-green patina that metals take on when weathered) of the grand buildings of the city.  

Hotel Indigo® Berlin – East Side Gallery, the third Hotel Indigo to open in Germany’s capital
  The 118- room Hotel Indigo® Berlin – East Side Gallery takes its design cues from the creative energy of the East Side neighbourhood, marrying raw industrial architecture with retro elements such as graffiti blocks and a bright colour scheme, inspired by the famous Trabi car. All guest rooms are fully equipped with USB outlets, a 43” inch Smart TV and complementary WiFi throughout.  

Its length of 1.3 kilometres makes it the world’s longest open air gallery: The East Side Gallery with its original pieces of art is a must-see for every visitor. The new Hotel Indigo that belongs to IHG® (InterContinental Hotels Group®), one of the world’s leading hotel companies, even owes its name to it. Right outside the doorstep, guests of the Hotel Indigo Berlin – East Side Gallery can visit the colourful remains of the Berlin wall at the Spree riverside and at the same time experience the lively metropolitan flair of the trend district Friedrichshain-Kreuzberg.  

The onsite restaurant and bar, Gallery Restaurant, gives both guests and locals a place to enjoy traditional German cuisine served in a tapas style, made from locally sourced fresh produce. The Gallery Rooftop Bar, offers panoramic views of the river Spree and is the perfect location to gather for a few drinks.  

Whether strolling alongside the East Side Gallery or visiting local boutique shops and street markets, 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 with unique shops, cafes and bars. Wrangelkiez, is also famed for its flamboyant street art, curated by some internationally renowned street artists.
