The Park Inn by Radisson Berlin Alexanderplatz has been investing into renovations since the beginning of the year and is in the process of completely remodelling 234 rooms. Parts of them were already ready for occupation in February but by 2 April all the rooms will be available again. “We are looking forward to presenting the new accommodations to our guests: 5,500m² of carpet and 11,500 m of cable have been laid and five truck loads of new furniture have been supplied. Moreover, the entire hotel was furnished with 1,012 HD capable 32-56 inch TVs which were fitted into so-called TV panels – a whole new television experience.” explains Jürgen Gangl, General Manager of the Park Inn Hotel Berlin Alexanderplatz. After the ITB, the world’s leading trade fair show on tourism, Germany’s second largest Hotel will host a number of sporting events: On 3 April, this year’s Base Flying season will be opened and “the brave” will have the chance to jump down towards the Alexanderplatz Square with a special winch system designed by Jochen Schweizer. The annual Fire Fighter Stair Run will take place on 18 April this year. It involves approx. 380 fire service teams climbing the 770 stairs of the hotel in record time while wearing their entire personal protective equipment and using their breathing apparatus. On 3 October, several hundred of hobby runners and professional stair climbers will follow their sample at the annual Stair Run. Thomas Dold, repeated winner of the Empire State Building Run Up in New York City will also participate. Apart from that, there is an event worth celebrating in October: On the October 7th, the hotel at Alexanderplatz celebrates its 45th anniversary at Alexanderplatz Square. On 11 September 2015, the 5th Park Inn Golf Charity Tournament will take place to the benefit of the Michael Stich Foundation, thus combining sports with the house’s charity engagement. The former tennis star Michael Stich himself will be swinging the golf club then. The Park Inn Hotel at Alexanderplatz also regularly supports the Berlin Bahnhofsmission (organisation helping travellers in need) at railway station Zoologischer Garten by donating clothes and food and has been working with the Ronald McDonald House in Berlin-Wedding for some time now. “This social commitment is important to us – we want to give part of our success back to the Berlin community and support those who are less fortunate,” says Jürgen Gangl.
