Why we choose Sofitel Munich Bayerpost

A lively hotel that makes luxury fun again

  • The spa goes rogue with a counter-current pool
  • “Cousu Main” service gives staff freedom to surprise you (in a good way)
  • Ten Opera Suites are a modern take on Bavarian mountain chalets

Sofitel Munich Bayerpost does a good job of blurring lines. For example, the architecture is elegant and classic, but the hotel itself has a cosmopolitan flair. Classic French Brasserie Cuisine with a modern touch in the Délich La Brasserie. You’ll look forward to encountering the next blurred line.

We suggest

The rooms are bright and bold, but the suites are magnificent monuments to contemporary design. There’s some serious wow factor here.

What you need to know about the hotel

The only five-star luxury design hotel in Munich—with Sofitel’s iconic French style

  • We recommend the 8th floor suites for their gorgeous views over the city’s rooftops and Alps.
  • You’ve got mail: The building served as a royal post office more than a century before becoming a Sofitel
  • Upscale Schwarz & Weiz is where to go for breakfast or book for private group dining

Inside the Italian Renaissance façade, the Sofitel Munich Bayerpost manages to skillfully merge materials like leather, coarse-grained wood, chrome and glass. It’s the perfect introduction to the hotel’s history-meets-great-design approach. In addition to luxe surroundings and facilities (indoor pool and spa, three restaurants and lounges), the service is top-notch. Sofitel’s signature “cousu main” style was designed to make every visit a tailor made success because, after all, you can’t go wrong by giving people what they want.

Where is it and what's nearby

Near the hotel is Munich’s famous pedestrian zone, where you can immediately discover what makes the city special

  • The Alte Pinakothek is easily Munich’s best art museum and among the most important in Europe, displaying hundreds of masterworks
  • Tragedy defined the Munich Olympics, but Olympia park today stands for good food, the BMW Museum and spectacular Tower views
  • Germany and jewelry? See how well they fit at Hemmerle, which used to supply the royal Bavarian court

Bavaria has a reputation for decadence (perhaps thanks to culinary contributions like Bavarian cream pie), but its decadence is actually better understood as a lust for life. The people of Munich work hard and play hard—often taking advantage of the area’s natural resources like lakes, forests and mountains.

The Sofitel Munich Bayerpost has a central location, offering quick access to the top gastronomic and shopping spots in town, as well as the performing arts venues for which Munich is known. In fact, its arts scene is outshined in Europe only by London in Paris, so if you’re a lover of dance or music, you’ve come to the right place to indulge yourself.

How to enjoy Munich

Every October, locals dressed in lederhosen and dirndls party with tourists in huge tents on the Theresienwiese fairground, swinging steins of lager while swaying and singing along to an oompah band

  • Visit the futuristic steel and glass BMW Museum located at the headquarters of the performance car manufacturer
  • Head out of town to see the fairytale towers of Bavaria’s many castles including Disney’s inspiration, Neuschwanstein, near Füssen
  • To source your own lederhosen or dirndl, head to the designer label fashion house, Lodenfrey, or the traditional costumier Angermaier

The, at times, raucous nature of the Oktoberfest belies the fact that Munich considers itself to be the Music Metropolis of the World. It has good cause for such a claim. The city is home to three opera houses, four major philharmonic and several chamber orchestras. The ornate Rococo Cuvilliés Theatre, which dates back to 1755, hosted Mozart’s first opera and the Olympia park is one of many local venues popular with international rock and pop acts.

The city center is marked by the grand square, the Marienplatz, which itself is dominated by the New Town Hall and the Glockenspiel Tower. At 11am and noon every day (as well as 5pm during the summer), the Glockenspiel’s 43 bells chime into life and play an accompaniment to a show by life-sized figures. Escape the crowds that the Glockenspiel draws by heading to the city’s vast park, the English Garden, where boating, cycling and even clothing are optional.

    When to visit Munich

    The Oktoberfest usually takes place over two weeks at the end of September and beginning of October. It is one of the world’s largest fairs and includes fairgrounds, parades of locals in national dress and the beer tents, where locals and visitors alike sample the wares of Munich-based brewers.

  • We say

    A lively hotel, in the heart of Munich, steps from the main train station.
