Who doesn't know it? The unique Hotel LOUIS with a great view, directly at the popular Viktualienmarkt. This year it will be 13 years old - it was opened in September 2009. The architects Andreas Hild and Dionys Ottl decided to reinterpret different Munich building traditions during the renovation: Baroque and the reconstruction architecture of the 1950s. Today it is a member of Design Hotels.
The hotel's namesake - who would have thought it - is Louis, an imaginary world traveler who values effortless service, loving details, and high-quality materials and has chosen the Isar metropolis of Munich as his adopted home.
The interior of the LOUIS was designed with a special focus on individuality: None of the 72 rooms, which vary in size, look the same. Handmade furniture made of walnut and oak, natural stone and fine tiles reminiscent of the Paris metro and closets that stand in the form of large travel suitcases in the room, local woods, fabrics in natural colors, and natural stone from the region create a cozy atmosphere.
The hotel’s restaurant has a direct view of the famous Viktualienmarkt, and offers its popular Viktualienmarkt breakfast every day; in the evening, the LOUIS Grillroom is located there, which conjures up surprising taste experiences on the plate from regional products - whether meat, fish, vegetarian or vegan. There is space for about 100 people - of course also for exclusive events. The LOUIS Sparkling Bar welcomes guests daily from 6 p.m. and is perfect for receptions for up to 50 people. In combination with the LOUIS Grillroom, both rooms can accommodate 300 people standing.
International audiences will feel particularly at home in one of the two conference rooms with panoramic views. All rooms with daylight are equipped with the latest conference technology and offer plenty of space for creative ideas. Likewise, the focus is on individuality, elegance, and atmosphere.
The LOUIS Boardroom on the sixth floor offers direct access to the roof terrace and allows a breathtaking view over Munich's old town. Fixed seating is available here for a maximum of twelve people seated at the boardroom table.
The LOUIS Marketroom has a view over the Rindermarkt. Here, a capacity of up to about 25 people can be reached exclusively via a separate entrance. The upholstered window sills along the long window front invite you to take a creative break. The oiled oak wood floor and the high-quality wooden chairs with leather upholstery give the room a high-class feel.
On request, delegates enjoy the convenience of print and concierge services. Free Wifi is a matter of course. Thus, ideal conditions for a successful business meeting in elegant surroundings are provided.
The famous Viktualienmarkt in the heart of Munich's old town is one of the most important sights. It was originally a farmers' and herb market. Nowadays, it is a popular place where connoisseurs and gourmets can find all the goods their heart desires - from urban Bavarian specialties to exotic fruits.
Until the beginning of the 19th century, the market was situated on Munich's Marienplatz, and over the years, it became today's Viktualienmarkt. In 1890 the Viktualienmarkt reached its current size, as some pavilions were added for selling fruits and a hall of the North Sea fishery.
Characteristic for the market is the fountain with Munich originals as fountain figures. Among others, comedians and celebrities such as Karl Valentin, Weiß Ferdl or Liesl Karlstadt as well as Ida Schumacher, Elise Aulinger and Roider Jackl can be found here.
The maypole is also striking, which has stood on Munich's Viktualienmarkt since 1962. The groups of figures attached to the maypole represent motifs of Munich life: Brewery team, Oktoberfest, Schäffler dance, musician and dancing couple, stall woman and beer bar, Munich city flags and the patron saints of brewers, St. Boniface and St. Florian.
A professionally guided tour of the Viktualienmarkt can bring a lot of joy during an incentive trip or as a leisure program during a conference.
