Bruges, Trier & Cologne: Three new Romantik Hotels in World Heritage Cities

Romantik is expanding its presence at three historic locations: prestigious hotels in the World Heritage Cities of Bruges in Belgium, and Trier and Cologne in Germany have joined the Romantik Hotels brand, which has 200 hotels and 300 partner hotels in ten European countries. The newcomers are Hotel de Orangerie, Hotel Zur Glocke and Hotel im Wasserturm. Travellers can stay at a total of 26 Romantik Hotels located in or near 18 World Heritage Sites in Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Italy, the Netherlands and Belgium. Thomas Edelkamp, Chairman of Romantik, is delighted with the new additions: “The World Heritage Sites are some of the most visited travel destinations in Europe. At Romantik we are now offering guests top hotels at these locations that also have their own very special stories to tell. Our new members highlight a growing trend: more and more outstanding city hotels are choosing to benefit from the marketing strength of the Romantik brand.”

Romantik Hotel de Orangerie, Bruges
Romantik Hotel de Orangerie is located in the heart of the mediaeval city of Bruges, not far from the main museums and shops and close to the best restaurants. This is one of the most popular hotels in the kingdom. A former 15th century convent, it is situated right by the picturesque Dijver Canal. The Vermast family brings out the historic character of the mediaeval building perfectly with antique furniture and paintings, while successfully creating a contemporary hotel that meets the highest standards.

Romantik Hotel Zur Glocke, Trier
Romantik Hotel Zur Glocke is a gem in the heart of Trier. Following extensive refurbishments, the historic building reopened in November 2016, offering spacious rooms that have been lovingly furnished in individual styles and offer views of the cathedral. Romantik Hotel Zur Glocke is housed in Zur Glocke, a famous historic tavern that has been serving food since 1803.

Romantik Hotel im Wasserturm, Cologne
Unique architecture and unforgettable views: Romantik Hotel im Wasserturm is situated in the centre of Cologne, housed in what was once Europe’s largest water tower. The five-star superior hotel boasts timeless, elegant rooms, a wonderful roof terrace and two excellent restaurants, including the Michelin-starred “Himmel un Äd”, where Eric Werner (31), a chef with two Michelin stars to his name, recently started dishing up new creative ideas.
