Radisson Hotel Group is proud to announce the signing of the first Radisson branded hotel in Germany. Located in the 800-year-old heart of the Hanseatic university city, directly in the seaport of Rostock, the property is set to open in Q3-2022. The new Radisson Hotel Rostock strengthens the group´s position in the region as part of its strategy to roll out further brands in Germany, a key focus country for our expansion with a remarkable development profile.
As a destination with more than two million overnight visitors each year – while featuring maritime and high-tech industries, as well as the University of Rostock – Rostock is one of the most important economic hubs in Northern Germany.
The upscale, full-service Radisson Hotel will deliver Scandinavian-inspired hospitality and complement the group’s Radisson Blu hotel in Rostock. The agreement brings Radisson Hotel Group´s portfolio in Germany to 35 hotels and more than 8,800 rooms in operation and under development.

We thank them for their trust and the successful journey so far. We are also grateful to the city of Rostock in bringing a new hotel project to this destination. This will create a unique ensemble in an exciting location. We are aware of the importance of this location and we thank all those involved for their support and their trust so far. As a family foundation, we invest long-term and are proud of our responsibility to the city and the region, as well as our responsibility to our employees.
