Swedish hotel chain Scandic Hotels has announced the opening of Scandic Nürnberg Central, marking its foray into Nürnberg, the second-largest metropolitan area of Bavaria, Germany.

The hotel, which features 311 rooms and event facilities capable of hosting up to 800 guests, is considered a significant milestone for the company’s German expansion strategy.

The company is operating the hotel under a long-term revenue-based lease agreement signed with the landlord Pandox, in December last year.

The hotel’s meeting rooms are tailored for smaller workshops and seminars. The grand ballroom, with its flexible design, can accommodate large-scale events, including vehicle launches and exhibitions.

The ballroom’s walls can be reconfigured to suit various event types, enhancing the venue’s versatility.

Scandic Nürnberg Central offers other amenities such as a gym and yoga facilities with a panoramic view of the city from the top floor.

Heiko Kain, who previously spearheaded the launch of Scandic Frankfurt Hafenpark, will serve as the general manager of Scandic Nürnberg Central.

Kain’s expertise is expected to contribute significantly to the hotel’s successful establishment in the region.

Scandic Hotels country managing director for Germany & Poland Michel Schutzbach said: “I’m extremely pleased that we’re continuing to expand in Germany, strengthening Scandic’s position in the European hotel market.

“By opening a hotel in another major city, we’re gradually establishing our Scandinavian brand in Germany and offering a hotel experience that appeals to a wide range of business and leisure travellers.”

Before its rebranding as a Scandic hotel, the property underwent a substantial renovation by Pandox.

The refurbishment included technical enhancements and sustainability-focused upgrades, aligning with Scandic’s commitment to environmental responsibility.

Sustainability is at the heart of operations at Scandic Nürnberg Central, which will seek certification as per the criteria of the Nordic Swan Ecolabel.

The hotel’s sustainability initiatives include the use of environmentally certified products and chemicals, the elimination of single-use disposables, reduced water consumption, a climate-friendly menu, and efforts to minimise food waste.

With the addition of Scandic Nürnberg Central, the company’s portfolio in Germany now encompasses seven hotels, totalling 2,461 rooms.
