Rosewood Munich

Modern luxury in old-town Munich

Housed within two meticulously restored landmark buildings, Rosewood Munich appears as a longtime resident of Munich’s old town, boasting charm and elegance from its baroque and rococo exteriors. But it's this thoughtful commitment to culture that makes the brand-new luxury hotel such an excellent fit in this historic capital city.

The first Rosewood outpost to open in Germany, the sumptuous property opened its doors in October 2023, debuting a beautiful blend of restored original architecture and contemporary style that has come to define the luxury brand. Towering baroque ceilings encapsulate a living art gallery of contemporary works by local artists. A classic brasserie-style eatery serves up modern interpretations of traditional Alpine cuisine. And just steps from Munich’s central square, Marienplatz, sits the country’s first Asaya-branded spa.

But the real thread tying past to present at this exquisite urban retreat is the stellar service that’s likely to make this hideaway a treasure for years to come.

Our Inspector's Highlights

  • Named for members of the Bavarian royal family, Rosewood Munich’s five “houses” (aka signature suites) are the most luxurious of its accommodations, ranging in size from the 840-square-foot Prinzessin Ferdinande House to the palatial 2,690-square-foot Konig Maximillian I House that has its own terrace.
  • Savor a taste of modern Alpine cuisine from the mind of executive chef Caspar Brok at Brasserie Cuvilliés. The uber-chic dining room changes its menu with the seasons, but recent highlights have included ox cheek with wild cherries, Alpine gold trout baked in a salt crust and zwiebelrostbraten (Bavarian beef, spinach spätzle and braised onions in beer sauce).
  • A see-and-be-seen spot for cocktails and live jazz, Bar Montez boasts a vintage vibe with a saucy backstory. The chic bar is a tribute to 19th-century actor Lola Montez, who was probably best known as the mistress of King Ludwig I of Bavaria.
  • The two-story, nearly 14,000-square-foot Asaya Spa at the Munich hotel is an Alpine retreat fit for royalty. A column-lined indoor pool, two saunas and an herbal steam room accompany six treatment rooms that serve up luxurious services from the likes of Dr. Barbara Sturm, OTO, Ground Wellbeing and EviDenS de Beauté.
  • Rosewood Munich puts many of the city’s most popular attractions within arm’s reach. Beyond Marienplatz, the stunning gothic Munich Cathedral, the bustling Viktualienmarkt with its vibrant food stalls and the former royal palace and museum are all within easy walking distance.

The Look

  • Rosewood Munich makes a striking first impression, spanning two stately downtown buildings. The high-end hotel occupies the 19th-century Bavarian State Bank headquarters and the adjacent Palai Neuhaus-Preysing, a former aristocratic residence dating back to 1703.
  • The hotel aims to serve as a living art gallery, showcasing works from a variety of local artisans. The most notable additions are fantastical pieces from German illustrator Olaf Hajek, wood carvings from sculptor Rosanna Merklin and urban photography from Michael Mann.
  • The luxury hotel took great care to preserve as many original architectural details as possible from its historic origins. The grand lobby, for example, maintains many echoes of its former grandeur, including the grand staircase, vaulted ceiling and preserved 19th-century frescos.
  • As an homage to Munich’s traditional architecture, the property also boasts two interior courtyards that serve as a respite from the bustle of the city. The Wintergarten is particularly enchanting with its all-white decor and strategically placed greenery that provides a stunning setting for afternoon tea.
  • The interior design takes a page from the Bauhaus playbook, balancing dark colors with neutral tones from natural materials and geometric shapes.
