MEININGER

Renovation work in MEININGER Hotel Hamburg City Center

In our hotel in Hamburg we have renovated the public areas. In this blog entry, we want to give you a glimpse behind the scenes, as it looked during the remodeling work at our hotel and give a little taste of what awaits you now after the check-in.

MEININGER in cooperation with GemüseAckerdemie

The GemüseAckerdemie is a full year, practice oriented education program with the aim of increasing the value of food to children and young people and anchoring healthy eating habits. By growing vegetables the children and young people gain a basic knowledge of agriculture, develop an understanding of healthy nutrition and learn how nature works.

Our MEININGER office dogs

For thousands of years, dogs have been known as man’s best friend. At MEININGER we can’t get enough of them either and that’s why we are glad to let our employees bring their furry, faithful, four-legged friends to work with them. Let us introduce you to four trusty MEININGER dogs.

Surfing our way from Cancún to Campeche.

People who like to travel, and by travel I don’t mean going on a two-week, all-inclusive holiday in a luxury resort booked through the travel agent, I mean proper travel – discovering the world, feeling like Christopher Columbus, feeling the wind in your hair, communicating with your hands and feet, not knowing what to expect and finding that quite thrilling, feeling lonely at times and being in the best company at other times, even when you don’t know one another, challenging yourself and being outside your own comfort zone. That’s the type of travel I’m talking about. For better or worse, people who like that kind of travel will have had to think about money at one time or another.

Siete semanas en Tulum.

Tulum, Quintana Roo, Mexico. For seven weeks now, we have been living in our little cabaña located just 30 m from one of the most idyllic beaches in the Caribbean. We’re at kilometre 8.2 on the small road linking the village of Pueblo and Playa beach. Pueblo is Tulum’s urban area and is located about half an hour away by bike. Playa stretches along the coast and is numbered with kilometre markers; there are no house numbers here.

One car. Two girls. Three road trips.

Freedom. Feel the wind in your hair. Simply set off. Go explore something new, leave everything behind and switch off. Forget everything for a day and feel entirely free.

That’s exactly what we wanted. And it was no sooner said than done: last Tuesday, we hired a car and drove inland from Tulum. With no destination, no plan and no satnav.

MEXICO – LET THE ADVENTURE BEGIN

After three whole years of working on the reception at MEININGER, I decided it was time for something new. While I thoroughly enjoyed sharing Berlin with people from the most varied of nations and exchanging stories and experiences with them, I simply could not shake off the idea of setting off on my very own adventure.
