Reichstag Berlin

When the Ritz-Carlton, Berlin opened its doors on January 12, 2004, it became another impressive new landmark in the heart of Berlin, and an important addition to Europe’s most contemporary urban plaza, the Potsdamer Platz. It’s amazing to think that all this began with the vision of celebrated hotelier Cesar Ritz, the “king of hoteliers and hotelier to kings”, whose philosophy of service and innovations redefined the luxury hotel experience in Europe.

The Ritz-Carlton Berlin is so grand it’s no wonder it has won countless awards. Most recently it was ranked the  #1 Top Large City Hotel in Europe in Travel + Leisure’s 2013 World’s Best Awards and  at Condé Nast Traveler US-Edition / Reader's Choice Awards it was awarded the best Northern European hotel .

The magnificent and awing interior design of The Ritz-Carlton, Berlin was created by Cologne based Peter Silling. Peter Silling was inspired by the works of renowned Prussian architect Karl Friedrich Schinkel whose architectural genius was renowned in Berlin and can be viewed in many of Berlin’s most famous buildings.

Ritz-Carlton Berlin Lobby

The Ritz-Carlton, Berlin has over 303 guest rooms and suites whose furnishings resemble German imperial style, which heavily dominated the historic city for generations. Even though Berlin has gained a new reputation as a city of contemporary and innovative design there is still a strong influence of German imperial style. Antique features within the hotel such as imported marble and bronze accents compliment but contrast with its dramatic geometric forms, creating a visual harmony throughout the hotel.
