Full accommodation information

For a history and culture city break, few places beat Munich. And this Rocco Forte hotel will put you right in the midst of its finest heritage sites.

Close to Nymphenburg Palace, the Neo-Gothic New City Hall, Bavarian State Library, Englischer Garten, and Hofbräuhaus beer hall (of Oktoberfest fame), The Charles Hotel is set next to Munich’s Alter Botanischer Garten, or Old Botanical Gardens, on the edge of the museum quarter. The latter is home to the Alte Pinakothek and the Lenbachhaus museums; both in walking distance of The Charles, as well as the designer stores of Maximilianstrasse.

Home to a world-class spa and exceptionally spacious accommodation, this chic and contemporary hotel has all the hallmarks synonymous with Rocco Forte, and with Bavarian hospitality.

The rooms are stylish with city views, popular with couples but with options for families. The Group’s ‘Travel Light’ and ‘Baby Concierge’ services are at your disposal if you’re visiting with younger children, while older kids have access to bespoke itineraries, special spa treatments and interactive entertainment in their room.

Boasting the longest hotel indoor pool in Munich, the wellness centre is an exceptional facility in which to relax with a spa therapy. There is also a Finnish sauna, foot bath and steam room – ideal for chilling after a busy day of sightseeing.

Don’t miss cocktails in the trendy Sophia’s Bar, or sitting outside on the garden terrace inspired by the Botanical Gardens at the hotel’s signature Italian-style restaurant.

The Charles Hotel is a special choice for a luxury city break in the heart of Munich.

The plush 160 rooms at this elegant hotel are spacious and luxurious, with excellent views of the city and beyond. Amenities include a smart television, in-room bar, free WiFi, hot drink making facilities, a Bang & Olufsen speaker and Forte Organics products in the bathroom.

The Charles Hotel’s dining offering comes in the form of Sophia’s Restaurant and Bar; featuring elegant Italian fare in a modern setting, and a contemporary bar area with cocktails and light bites. Don’t miss the nods to Munich; like the Bavarian breakfast served in the restaurant, and the wide selection of draught beers at the bar.

Sophia’s Restaurant

Sophia’s Bar

Sophia’s Bar

Enjoy cocktails, tapas and classics like burgers and club sandwiches at this trendy bar at The Charles Hotel. The cocktail menu at this super-cool bar is extensive, and drinks can be taken out onto the terrace whilst listening to live music.

Sightseeing in Munich

A tour of the city will ensure you don’t miss any of Munich’s finest sights... though if you’re only here for a weekend or for Oktoberfest, be warned you’ll be back for more!
The Charles Hotel’s concierge can create a bespoke itinerary of the city’s best tourist attractions. Our Inspiring Travel Specialists recommend: visiting Marienplatz for 11am when you can see the famous glockenspiel clock; have a drink at Hoffbaruhaus, one of the most famous beer halls in Munich; see the Beer and Oktoberfest Museum and then have lunch at Augustiner Keller; take a trip to Viktualienmarkt, Munich’s largest food market and a great spot to pick up souvenirs.

Spa & Wellness

To counter all the walking and touring of Munich’s best sights, The Charles Hotel has a large wellness centre for guests to retreat to. The huge indoor pool is 15X8 metres, and there is a steam room with colour therapy and aromatherapy; a Finnish sauna; hot and cold foot baths; and a 24/7 fitness centre which overlooks the pool.

Under the ownership of Rocco Forte, The Charles Hotel aligns with the Group’s policies on sustainability, seeing its “responsibility to protect the people, practices and heritage that make each of our destinations so special”.
There are a number of steps that Rocco Forte is taking to be more sustainable, from small changes like offering you a Press-Reader to enjoy online newspapers, to working with equipment manufacturers who practice sustainable production techniques.
