The IBB Hotel Ingelheim is the winner of the “Best of Wine Tourism Award”. The coveted prize was awarded to the four-star establishment situated in the heart of Ingelheim by the international network “Great Wine Capitals”.
IBB Hotel Ingelheim forms part of the IBB Hotel Collection, a company of the Von der Heyden Group, based in Valletta. The IBB Hotel Collection currently operates 13 hotels in Germany, Malta, Poland and Spain.
This special honour for Mainz and Rheinhessen regions in the “Accommodations” category was awarded to the IBB Hotel Ingelheim following its opening for business in the Rheinhessen wine metropolis in June 2017. The prize is awarded annually by international network Great Wine Capitals to companies that are particularly outstanding in their respective region for wine tourism.
A nine-member jury of Great Wine Capital Mainz/Rheinhessen chose the winners in seven categories – from fine food and wines to sustainability, art and culture. The regional wine experts and municipal dignitaries looked for outstanding achievements in the tourism sector. In the “Accommodations” category, the IBB Hotel Ingelheim outshone its competitors, taking first place.
The jury considered it worthy of an award that a “hotel group operating throughout Europe is aligning its facilities and services entirely with the region”. The interior design of the 109-room hotel reflects the Rheinhessen wine region: natural materials are mingled with images and stylistic elements from the world of wine. Offerings such as wine events with partner wineries in their in-house restaurant and excursions to the vineyards by vintage bus also include a top-class selection of regional wines.
“It is a great honour that our IBB Hotel Ingelheim has been awarded this prestigious international prize. It is the perfect tribute to the creative, successful wine tourism activities of our Ingelheim team, led by General Manager Michael Werner,” says IBB Hotel Collection Managing Director Vladimir Saal enthusiastically.
The modern hotel in the centre of the historic city of Ingelheim am Rhein is one of the individual city hotels in the fast-growing IBB Hotel Collection. Strategically located just outside the Mainz/Wiesbaden/Frankfurt and Rhine-Main metropolitan regions, the hotel features conference facilities. Its guests include business travellers and private visitors from Germany and abroad. Through its immediate proximity to the kING Culture and Congress Hall and the Ingelheim iCC Conference Centre, the hotel has established itself as an important hub for events in the region after just one year.
