The new Steigenberg Hotel Munich is set to open up in the Bavarian capital in December of this year, and with it comes the appointment of Munich-native Thomas Fischer as general manager.

Before joining the Steigenberg Hotel, Fischer held the position as general manager of Corinthia Hotels & Resorts in London and Budapest. He has also served as the general manager of Kempinski Hotels & Resorts in cities such as Frankfurt and Moscow.

Steigenberg Hotel COO Thomas Willms believes that under Fischer’s leadership, the hotel will experience great success. Willms, in part, attributes this to Fischer’s familiarity of the city as a native. He believes Fischer will show “a wealth of experience in the international hotel sector” going forward.
