IntercityHotel Herford Officially Opens

IntercityHotel Herford

Deutsche Hospitality announced the official opening of modern and design-oriented: IntercityHotel Herford. 

The newly built IntercityHotel Herford, led by General Manager Tim Henrik Göhring, welcomed its first guests on October 1, 2022.

The hotel has 135 guest rooms, a breakfast restaurant and bar, not to mention three meeting rooms boasting 90 square meters. Italian architect and designer Matteo Thun was in charge of the interior design. The hotel is operated by Scoop Hotels, a franchise partner of Deutsche Hospitality.



The IntercityHotel Herford is located in the heart of the city, near Herford main station. Directly across the street is the "Marta Herford" museum for contemporary art, architecture and design, which opened its doors in 2005. The exterior itself looks like a work of art: The asymmetrical museum building made of red clinker brick and stainless steel was designed by star Canadian-US architect Frank Gehry.

Tim Henrik Göhring, General Manager of IntercityHotel Herford commented: "The whole team has been looking forward to the opening with great anticipation. It is always a very special experience for everyone involved to welcome the first guests at a new hotel and going from the pre-opening phase to the daily business."

Kai H. Gehrmann, Vice President Franchise, Deutsche Hospitality said, "After celebrating the opening of MAXX Hotel Aalen in June, IntercityHotel Herford is already the second hotel this year that we have been able to open with our partner Scoop Hotels."

Axel Jünke, Managing Director Scoop Hotels said, "The opening of IntercityHotel Herford on 1 October is another milestone in the joint history of Deutsche Hospitality and Scoop Hotels. Guests in Herford can look forward to a combination of mobility, design, comfort and service in actual practice."
