The Experience

The Fairmont Hotel Vier Jahreszeiten

Has been welcoming guests from all over the world for more than 115 years and belongs to Hamburg like the Alster Lake and the St. Michaelis church. While the tradition is one of the characteristics of the hotel, innovation has never stopped to continuously refine the services and facilities. In recent years Hotel Vier Jahreszeiten perfectly managed to harmonize the hotels admirable history with contemporary and international lifestyle trends.

Fairmont Hotel Vier Jahreszeiten is an unrivaled experience: from the unique culinary diversity with 9 restaurants and bars to the Vier Jahreszeiten Spa, offering more than 100 different treatments, and the most unusual event location in Germany – the ‘Grand Dame’ of Hamburg provides a wide range of extensive choices for everyone.

After the successful renovation of our kitchen and the gourmet restaurant Haerlin in 2013, a new and modern equipped domain is available to our Haerlin Head Chef Christoph Rüffer and his team ensuring their guests are being spoiled on the highest culinary level. Surely, unrivaled and remarkable is ‘Rüffer’s Chef’s Table’ where guests can look directly over the shoulder of the 2 Michelin starred chef and his crew while savoring their creations.

However, far more happened last year: The Fairmont Hotel Vier Jahreszeiten has opened an unique and exciting event location behind the scenes of the hotel! All kitchens have been renovated in a style that is lovingly maintained down to the smallest detail and designed according to different themes. While the kitchens were renovated mirroring the design of the respective restaurant, the butchery uniquely reminds one of a cozy hunting lodge and the patisserie of a picturesque impression of Versailles palace. These event locations open up completely new options giving your creativity unlimited opportunities.

The year 2014 will also be characterized by further exciting developments: beside the enlargement of the Spa area, the Fitness Club will offer the newest state-of-the-art fitness equipment of Technogym as one of the first hotels in Europe which completes the innovative service portfolio of the Fairmont Hotel Vier Jahreszeiten. All 156 luxury rooms and suites are currently being fully renovated and will shine in a modern-classic interior combined with precious, antique accessories.
