Press release   •   Mar 24, 2017 09:15 CET

IGA Berlin 2017 – Berlin’s first ropeway affords a view of the IGA grounds and its various horticultural and architectural attractions.

Garden fans can enjoy a leading international garden festival and explore its host city Berlin with a new package at Maritim Hotels Germany. 

Germany’s largest owner managed hotel group is offering a new ‘IGA’ package which includes two nights’ accommodation in Berlin with free city travel and entry into IGA – the renowned International Garden Show in Berlin. Held only every 10 years, IGA hosts more than 5,000 events held over the course of 186 days, all centring on contemporary garden design, landscape architecture and green urban spaces. 

IGA Berlin 2017 – English Garden with traditional cottage and pleasure ground, designed by the Austin-Smith: Lord Office in Manchester, England.

IGA takes place 13 April – 15 October on the outskirts of Berlin and the city’s first ever cable car system has been built to help visitors travel across the show’s 104 hectare grounds. Around two million visitors are expected to this renowned event which promises to be a source of ideas and inspiration, a place of learning and experimentation, a platform for intercultural dialogue and a laboratory for innovation.

Maritim’s IGA package includes a two night stay at Maritim Hotel Berlin, centrally located between Potsdamer Platz and Tiergarten, complete with evening meal and Maritim's signature breakfast buffet. Alongside entry into IGA and a cable car ride, guests at the Maritim can also explore Germany’s capital with a Berlin WelcomeCard offering 48 hours free travel and free or discounted entry into the city’s major attractions.

LeRoy Sheppard, Maritim Director of Sales UK & Ireland, comments:

“Green fingered visitors will relish the chance to explore this leading international event as well as enjoying what the capital has to offer. The Maritim Hotel Berlin offers a welcome base to rest and unwind after busy days in Berlin enjoying flora and fauna – our new package offers the perfect combination for an exciting garden getaway.”

The Maritim Hotelgesellschaft is Germany’s largest owner-managed hotel group, and the company’s nationwide hotel network is represented by hotels in six countries overseas: Mauritius, Egypt, Turkey, Malta, Spain and China. The group’s ongoing expansion continues to strengthen its position within the European first-class hotel industry.
