Strategically located near the city’s historic district and central station, the new hotel will offer 311 rooms and event facilities for up to 850 people. Shared spaces will include a restaurant, a bar, a gym and a wellness area.

Pandox recently carried out a major renovation of the hotel, which reopened in 2023. During the renovation, Pandox also made technical and sustainability-related investments and upgrades to the property. Earlier in 2023, the Nordic Swan Ecolabel, the Nordic region’s official ecolabel, was launched in Germany. This means that Scandic’s German hotels can begin their journey toward Nordic Swan Ecolabel certification. The operations of the new hotel will be certified by the Nordic Swan Ecolabel after the takeover.

“It’s fantastic that we’re continuing to expand in Germany and strengthening Scandic’s position in the European hotel market. The hotel is an excellent addition to our portfolio that will solidify our offering for business travelers looking to arrange larger meetings and events. Together with my colleagues, I look forward to opening Scandic’s first hotel in Nuremberg, a city that has become an important financial center and that is investing in and building for the future”, says Michel Schutzbach, Head of Europe at Scandic Hotels.

The new hotel will be operated under the Scandic brand. Following the takeover, Scandic will operate seven hotels in Germany with a total of 2,461 rooms.
