The Rezidor Hotel Group, one of the fastest growing hotel companies worldwide, announces the Radisson Blu Axelmannstein Resort in Bad Reichenhall, Germany. The existing property with 152 rooms will be rebranded and join the Radisson family on 30th June 2009. “With this signing our steadily growing resort portfolio comes close to 40 properties with more than 9,500 rooms across Europe and the Middle East”, comments Kurt Ritter, President & CEO of Rezidor. At the same time, the hotel brings the German portfolio to almost 50 properties with more than 10,000 rooms. "We are excited to extend our cooperation with Rezidor to another property", adds Bodo Sikora, Managing Director of EP Group Germany which operates the hotel. "Based on our experience with the Radisson Blu Hotel Stralsund we are convinced that this partnership will be to the full benefit of the hotel and the city of Bad Reichenhall as a tourist destination”, Sikora explains.

The original building of the Radisson Blu Axelmannstein Resort dates back to 1846 and is a beautiful building in Grand Hotel style, located in a private park of 30,000 square meters featuring a lake, fountains and exotic trees. The 152 spacious rooms (including 11 suites and 4 apartments) undergo a renovation and will offer all unique Radisson Blu services including free high speed internet.

Restaurant and bar venues include the “Parkrestaurant” with international and French menus, the “Axelstüberl” serving specialities from Bavaria, the “Wiener Café” and the “Axelbar”. The hotel’s spa comprises 600 square meters dedicated to wellness and wellbeing – including treatment rooms, sauna, indoor pool, solarium and fitness room.

Bad Reichenhall is a famous health resort in Southern Germany – close to the Austrian border and to Salzburg (which is only a 15 minutes drive away). It has a scenic location amidst Bavaria’s mountains and crystal-clear lakes. Hiking trails, ski slopes, golf courses, shopping paradises and music festivals beckon travellers.
