Munich: Topping-out ceremony for new airport hotel

Munich Airport is currently building a new hotel building on the site, which will in future be operated by a tenant as “Ibis Styles Munich Airport”. In the meantime, the so-called topping-out ceremony was celebrated.

The opening of the ibis Styles Hotel is planned for summer 2025. At its peak, around 120 construction workers are working on the construction site at the same time. Almost 600 tons of structural steel were used in the shell. The use of rock wool instead of rigid foam in the thermal insulation composite system, a green roof, geothermal energy to provide cold and the connection to district heating via renewable energy sources contribute significantly to reducing the building's CO2 emissions. The hotel will therefore receive gold certification from the German Sustainable Building Council. This means that the building fits particularly well into FMG’s sustainability strategy.

The focal point of the 350-room hotel will be the open lobby. This offers a restaurant, a bar and a separate breakfast area, as well as space for co-working. A children's area and a self-service food market are also planned. The ibis Styles brand stands for creative, individual and at the same time affordable hotels, with each of the approximately 670 hotels worldwide telling its own design story. In addition to the hotel's own parking spaces, the hotel at Munich Airport will in future also be connected to local public transport, which, for example, offers a bus connection to the terminals every ten minutes.
