Seminaris saves vegetables from the beauty police


Seminaris saves vegetables from the “beauty police“

April 13, 2022

Quere Karotte

The Seminaris Hotels implement a comprehensive sustainability strategy. This includes saving organic vegetables, which EU standards declare not nice enough, but which are extra delicious according to chefs and guests.

Since March, the Seminaris Hotels have been serving special vegetables: the “Veggie Rebels”. These are crooked cucumbers, intertwined carrots or potatoes that are not quite round – and not only very adorable, but above all super tasty. But because the shape is harder to store and transport, EU standards declare such “improperly grown” vegetables to be rejects. This keeps them off the shelves of most supermarkets and organic stores.

Great love for food

Seminaris can now save such vegetables from organic farming in cooperation with the Berlin organic trader Querfeld. The hotels’ chefs are happy to have such special pieces under their knives. “Of course, it takes more effort to peel the vegetable rebels, but if you value food for what it is, being a resource for life, then the love for the product makes it a joy to handle,” explains Deborah Bertram, Head of Food & Beverage. “We are delighted to be able to offer them to our guests.”

Saving non-standard vegetables is sustainable, and thus the “Veggie Rebels” support Seminaris’ comprehensive strategy on this topic: the company, which is clearly committed to sustainable development and ecological responsibility, is continuously looking for new ways to complement its existing activities.

Seminaris Hotel Lüneburg Lobby

Break away from the conservative dogmas of the hotel industry


Break away from the conservative dogmas of the hotel industry!

October 5, 2021

Seminaris Hotel Lüneburg Lobby

Seminaris Hotels not only offer their guests ideal conditions for New Work meetings and trainings: they are also implementing a real change themselves and putting the concept into practice with their own employees.

New Work is the future of work: more flexible, more digital, more connected, more human. Seminaris Hotels accompany companies on their way to this concept: In addition to classic conferences and events, the eight hotels throughout Germany offer everything that is needed to learn New Work. With creative rooms, a professional network of trainers and speakers, and the amenities of a business hotel, they support companies in the exciting process of change. They give these companies the space, the tools and the support they need to develop sustainably. And what Seminaris sells, they live: Since 2019, the team itself has been committed to a profound transformation.

Questioning the traditional hotel industry

In order to truly understand the needs of its guests and to accompany the external and internal transformation of its teams at eye level, the company is questioning everything that the classic hotel industry has established as standard over decades. “We are deliberately breaking with the conservative dogmas of the industry,” says Jochen Swoboda, Director of Operations at Seminaris Hotels. “Because customers who want to change their companies with creative, agile meetings don’t just need rooms and free space: they need a place where they can break out of their daily routine, develop new ideas and initiate sustainable processes. And you need network partners who turn these sprints into real design sprints and lead them into the New World of work.”

Culture change must be the focus

In cooperation with the Berlin-based organizational development company Wecreation, which supports brands and organizations in their cultural transformation, the employees of Seminaris are developing a practical concept. “Just like the teams at Seminaris, we are convinced that people can only fully develop their potential and do good work in a contemporary organizational culture,” says Christian Binninger, Managing Director at Wecreation and coach. “Organizations that want to position themselves for the future have to include cultural development in their strategic focus.” In the joint project, several agile sprints will take place within two years to change Seminaris from the very ground up. Together, the values of Seminaris will be defined and realigned. Selected ambassadors in the company implement the corresponding knowledge and mindset in all teams.

Know the needs and challenges of customers

“This change takes time,” Swoboda said. “And it can be painful when you have to let go of familiar processes and beliefs. But that’s exactly what we’re learning, which is what our customers are also experiencing as they transition to New Work: We now know what transformation feels like, what the challenges are, and how to overcome them.” He also senses the energy that the process has already triggered among Seminaris employees: “We have come through the pandemic better than average so far. New Work has certainly contributed to that!”

Teams are allowed to shape the company in a new way

For employees, the process offers a fulfilling opportunity to help shape the company from the ground up – and to do so sustainably and over the long term: Seminaris has switched to a matrix organization in which not entire teams, but the specialists best suited to a particular task are allowed to make targeted, quick decisions. “We are convinced that the conversion to New Work strengthens our employees and shows them that they can participate in making the brand grow.” The people in the company grow with it – the Seminaris slogan is meant seriously: We make people grow!

Seminaris Hotels Sitztreppen

Seminaris Hotels are shaping the sales of the future right now


Seminaris Hotels are shaping the sales of the future right now

June 22, 2021

Seminaris Hotels Sitztreppen

Students at the Hasso Plattner Institute in Potsdam are developing agile tools for sales in a project partnership with Seminaris Hotels.

How does a modern conference hotel reach its target groups? How do you make sales more agile in order to attract new business and meeting customers? This is what students at the Hasso Plattner Institute for Digital Engineering gGmbH at the University of Potsdam are exploring as part of a challenge at the School of Design Thinking (HPI D-School). The HPI D-School is entering into a project partnership with Seminaris Hotels. Jochen Swoboda, Director of Operations at Seminaris Hotels, explains: “In the Corona pandemic, the hotel industry is facing unprecedented challenges, with many establishments having to go on short-time working. We are looking ahead right now and have this study done to look at the distribution of the future. I firmly believe that it will take an agile sales process to continue to be successful.”

Develop agile selling experience

The assignment is open-ended to allow students to be completely creative. They are asked to design an “agile selling experience for new business and meeting clients” incorporating “new work in a process of internal service transformation and cultural change for a small urban hotel chain.” “The Design Challenge is also very exciting for us, as we as HPI D-School are developing our analog, digital and hybrid creative spaces massively right now,” says Claudia Nicolai, Academic Director of HPI D-School.

About two years ago, Seminaris Hotels began transforming all internal processes toward agility and New Work. As established conference hotels, they offer their guests not only newly renovated rooms for overnight stays, but also everything they need for meetings and training sessions based on the “New Work” concept: creative rooms, professional materials, and a sustainable network of keynote speakers, moderators, and trainers. Seminaris Hotels act as Service Solution Provider (SSP), offering not only accommodation, catering and conference rooms, but also methods, trainers, materials, speakers and even initial consultation on the design of the seminar itself. In this way, companies that want to change find the best possible conditions and exactly the place they need to think differently, make new plans and plan them in a targeted manner.

The idea machine runs at full speed

What the HPI D-School students come up with as part of the Design Thinking Challenge is completely open: The result of this process, which they are currently going through, can be an app, a website or a completely different tool, for example. “We are very excited and curious to see what ideas the project participants come up with,” says Jochen Swoboda. “And we look forward to implementing the results with our sales team in order to address existing customers in a fresh way and win new ones.”

The HPI School of Design Thinking (HPI D-School) was founded in 2007 by Hasso Plattner based on the model of the Stanforder d.school in Potsdam. Since then, it has become the European center for design thinking education. Each year, the HPI D-School offers 400 places for additional study in the innovation approach. In small, multidisciplinary teams, students from a wide range of disciplines develop innovative and human-centered solutions to complex real-world problems. In doing so, they are in close exchange with project partners from companies, NGOs and political institutions.
Under the leadership of Professor Ulrich Weinberg and Dr. Claudia Nicolai, Design Thinking is successfully taught, lived and developed at the Hasso Plattner Institute.

Seminaris Hotel Bad Honnef Tagungsraum Playground

Conference rooms in the perfect environment: How “New Work” works


Conference rooms in the perfect environment: How “New Work” works

November 11, 2020

Seminaris Hotel Bad Honnef Tagungsraum Playground

A “walking meeting” in nature, a box full of building blocks or a ball pool for adults: With the methods of “New Work” business conferences look pleasantly different. The Seminaris Hotels (www.seminaris.de) have devoted themselves from the bottom of their hearts to this concept for New Work. The eight conference hotels in Berlin, Potsdam, Leipzig, Lüneburg, Nuremberg, Bad Honnef and Bad Boll are centrally located in German metropolitan regions and at the same time in the middle of nature. They offer perfect conditions for conferences and meetings according to the “New Work” concept. This is also true in the time of Covid-19: The company meets the practical challenges resulting from the corona pandemic with a well thought-out hygiene concept with appropriate hygiene measures and distance regulations, which has proven itself very well in practice.

“If companies want to transform themselves, they need retreats where they can initiate creative development processes quickly, efficiently and with pleasure,” says Jochen Swoboda, Director of Operations at Seminaris Hotels. “Up to now, new-work training sessions have mainly taken place in urban co-working spaces. However, there is a lack of suitable infrastructure for the guests, especially for events and processes that run over several days”. Seminaris offers perfectly equipped meeting rooms for conferences and workshops throughout Germany. “These are creative rooms that don’t just look colorful, but offer everything you need for the organisation of professional trainings and meetings – from flexible furniture and walls, to top-equipped material cases and the building blocks, to breakout areas for breaks or concentrated work,” says Swoboda.

In addition to ideal working conditions, professional conference technology and equipment, the conference hotels of Seminaris offer their guests a top-class service, an outstanding gastronomic offer and above all a great environment: Each Seminaris Hotel is located close to or directly in the countryside. In the organisation, planning and realisation of conferences and workshops the Seminaris team advises and supports the organisers. In addition, Seminaris has a network of inspiring new-work trainers, coaches, keynote speakers and moderators, who as experts accompany the meetings and events of the conference guests. “If a company wants to transform itself, we are happy to accompany it on this path from the very beginning,” says Swoboda. “We see ourselves as a service provider for New Work: In addition to a productive, modern environment, we provide renowned coaches with whom our customers develop the best training for their employees together”.

The transformation processes that the Seminaris conference guests create for their companies are also experienced by the Seminaris team itself: “New Work stands for values such as independence, freedom and participation,” says Swoboda. “For a year now we have been transforming the entire company to the New Work concept. This applies both to the work in the teams and to our internal hierarchies and decision-making processes. I want our employees to show how courageous and creative they are. They should take responsibility, make their own decisions and see themselves as entrepreneurs within the company. Swoboda’s goal is flat hierarchies and satisfied employees who can realise their potential and thus bring more energy and creativity into the job. In the rather conservative hotel industry this is an unusual way. “New Work is the future. And hotels are predestined to live this concept”. Jochen Swoboda is convinced that he can keep the Seminaris brand sustainable through New Work concepts. “In consideration of the lack of skilled workers, it is essential for us to be an attractive employer in the long term. The guests will not stay away, more and more are coming – but we also need people who see a workplace in the hotel where they can realise themselves with fun and enthusiasm”.

Seminaris Hotel Nürnberg Superior Plus Zimmer

Seminaris Hotel Nürnberg brings together the past and present in a completely new way


Seminaris Hotel Nürnberg brings together the past and present in a completely new way

September 9, 2020

Seminaris Hotel Nürnberg Superior Plus Zimmer

In Nuremberg, history meets the modern, creating inspiring contrasts. This is also reflected in the Seminaris Hotel Nürnberg – even more so now that it has been renovated. All 152 rooms have been completely redesigned: They now welcome guests with a mix of wooden floors, street art on the walls, furniture in industrial design, cosy hanging chairs and fabulously comfortable beds. State-of-the-art technology has also moved in – from fast, free WLAN and USB sockets to spacious flat-screen televisions. The lobby has also already been completed and now presents the fresh character of the house as soon as you enter it.

Excellent food and high-quality accommodation

Everything in combination with an event or also completely privately the Seminaris Hotel Nürnberg offers all for the optimal supply of its guests, among other things a modern, fresh kitchen and high-quality overnight accomodation. “We are pleased that the renovation of the rooms has already been completed and that we can now offer our guests a great, creative product in Nuremberg as well,” says Jochen Swoboda, Director of Operations at Seminaris Hotels. “The reconstruction has enriched all of us personally and we are happy that we can also convince our guests with the transformation”.

Well thought-out package of measures for maximum safety

The Seminaris Hotel Nürnberg has a total of 18 rooms with around 1,069 m² of space for meetings and conferences. There is room for up to 372 people. A separate Convention Center with 423 m² on two floors is accessible via a separate entrance. Two spacious foyers with a total area of 428 m² complete the setting. The ceilings of the rooms, most of which can be darkened, are up to 5.80 meters high, and the event technology and conference infrastructure are state-of-the-art. Hybrid conferences with live streaming into other conference rooms or even worldwide to any location expand the conference offer, not only in the current time.

Like all Seminaris Hotels, this one is also optimally adjusted to meet the security requirements of Covid-19: A well thought out package of measures around hygiene, catering and guest care enables a relaxed overnight stay, meetings and meals.

Accompany transformation processes

The creative heads in the company are still thinking, of course, but they already have new ideas in the pipeline. In the future, visitors can look forward to a special highlight: A next innovative project in the field of “New Work” is being planned, in which a very unusual space will be used. “New Work” stands for future work and offers companies in transition exciting methods and tools. This also includes a comprehensive range of materials needed for modern conferences and workshops. Seminaris also maintains a network of keynote speakers, moderators and trainers who work according to New Work, and is happy to find the right people for the job. The addition of the new room product and catering options makes the offer unique in the German hotel industry.

Transformationsprozesse begleiten

Die kreativen Köpfe im Unternehmen stehen natürlich auch nicht still, sondern haben schon neue Ideen in der Schublade. In Zukunft können sich die Besucher noch auf ein besonderes Highlight freuen: Ein nächstes innovatives Vorhaben im Bereich „New Work“ ist in Planung, bei dem eine ganz außergewöhnliche Fläche genutzt werden soll. „New Work“ steht für Neues Arbeiten und bietet Unternehmen im Wandel spannende Methoden und Instrumente. Dazu gehört auch eine umfangreiche Ausstattung an Materialien, die für moderne Tagungen und Workshops gebraucht werden. Seminaris pflegt zudem ein Netzwerk mit Keynote Speakern, Moderatoren und Trainern, die nach New Work arbeiten, und vermittelt hier gern die passenden Köpfe. Die Ergänzung durch das neue Zimmerprodukt und Cateringoptionen macht das Angebot einzigartig in der deutschen Hotellerie.

Seminaris CampusHotel Berlin Tagungsraum Play Cube

At the Seminaris CampusHotel Berlin, events have a new playground


At the Seminaris CampusHotel Berlin, events have a new “playground“

September 1, 2020

Seminaris CampusHotel Berlin Tagungsraum Play Cube

Rooms should offer opportunities for development, be functional and at the same time allow completely new high flights: At the Seminaris CampusHotel Berlin, this can now be experienced and used at first hand to discover completely new professional perspectives. After extensive redesign of the entire groundfloor of the Conference Center to create the new Play Cube, the hotel now offers unique space for meetings, incentives, conferences and events as well as workshops and trainings based on the concept of New Work.

It brings people together, enables intensive exchange, exciting learning and personal development. This is also reflected in the design: screens on easels instead of flipcharts, versatile co-working furniture instead of classic conference chairs. Intelligent seating furniture with integrated work materials, organic forms, games and inspiring quotes provoke new ways of thinking in the best possible way. “A charmingly playful interior meets a very high-quality equipment in the field of technology and acoustics. This allows us to offer our guests a very modern meeting culture”, explains Phillip Unruh, General Manager of the Seminaris CampusHotel Berlin. Everything is designed in harmonious natural colors – and rough industrial lamps, old wood and open ceilings cause exciting irritations.

Seminaris is specialised in New-Work-Meetings and Workshops – unique in the hotel industry. The methods and formats of the concept enable intensive transformation processes for companies and their teams. “New Work means questioning things and rethinking in order to move forward, remain future-proof and develop personally,” says Phillip Unruh. “We have done this ourselves as a company, and our teams also work with the methods. We have virtually reinvented ourselves – and feel how much more fun this can be in our profession and how much closer it brings us to our own goals. I am delighted that the Play Cube’s transformation has enabled such a great result: It is an extremely innovative area that sets no limits to creativity. Our rooms now show the individuality that we want to offer our guests.

In-house Conference Center

The base of Seminaris CampusHotel Berlin is formed by 15 spacious meeting and conference rooms for up to 700 participants. The hotel has its own Conference Center on three floors with separate entrance and goods delivery. It has two large foyers, the meeting rooms are air-conditioned and up to 4.20 meters high. The floor-to-ceiling windows can be blacked out, and the event technology and conference infrastructure are state-of-the-art. The Conference Center covers an area of 1,570 m². In addition to a 720 m² conference hall, the almost 500 m² Play Cube is one of the highlights: Here, playful working is explicitly desired and it is particularly good for small and large groups to get together, discuss together, develop ideas and think “out of the box”. The area can be used in its entirety or individual areas can be separated on request – as a “room in a room” that is perfect for working in a team. The complete equipment of high-quality materials needed for modern conferences and presentations according to the New Work concept is available. The hotel is also happy to arrange presenters, keynote speakers or trainers from its own network.

Extremely flexible conference rooms

For those who need more space, there is the conference hall “Domus Variabilis” on the second floor of the Berlin Conference Center: as the name indicates, it can be subdivided particularly flexibly. This is ideal for almost any type of event, especially since there is enough space left here to accommodate different distance regulations. Like all Seminaris hotels, the Hotel Berlin is of course also optimally adjusted to comply with the security regulations for Covid-19: A well thought out package of measures approximately around hygiene, food supply and guest support makes a relaxed staying overnight, meetings and meals possible. From masks at check-in to a breakfast concept to a coffee break directly in the conference room, everything has been thought of – and the hotel team is committed to attentive and sensitive care of the visitors as well as a maximum of flexibility.

In the city and in the nature at the same time

The Seminaris CampusHotel Berlin and therefore also the Conference Center combine the stimulating urbanity of Berlin with relaxed nature: Like all Seminaris hotels, the hotel is located very close to green nature and yet directly to the City West. “The entire design of our hotel is very timeless and blends smoothly into its neighborhood. Through the windows we look out over the green of Berlin Dahlem and our guests can step outside at any time and enjoy the fresh air,” says Phillip Unruh. “That simply feels good and often enables better ideas and fresh motivation. Whether brainstorming sessions outdoors or a “walking break”, where participants are equipped with provisions rucksacks to recharge their batteries outside – the environment is consciously included.

Seminaris Hotel Lüneburg Restaurant

Seminaris Hotel Lüneburg reinvents itself


Seminaris Hotel Lüneburg reinvents itself

July 9, 2020

Seminaris Hotel Lüneburg Restaurant

After extensive modernisation, the parent company of the Seminaris Hotel Group surprises with a new design and accompanies companies in their transformation processes with conferences and meetings according to the “New Work” concept.

20 extraordinary conference rooms for up to 320 people, a modern interior design in industrial design and a creative cuisine: The Seminaris Hotel Lüneburg, as the parent company of the hotel group, has been an established name in the Hamburg metropolitan region for four decades. Now it has completely reinvented itself in the best sense, following extensive refurbishment and offers not only different, high-quality room categories and outstanding culinary delights, but also ideal conditions for meetings, with the emphasis on the “New Work” concept.

Thanks to a well thought-out package of measures relating to hygiene, catering and guest care, the hotel, like all Seminaris hotels, is optimally equipped to comply with the security regulations for Covid-19. From masks at check-in to breakfast in the room to a coffee break directly in the conference room, everything is established to ensure a relaxed overnight stay, meetings and meals. The hotel team focuses above all on attentive and sensitive care of the visitors as well as a maximum of flexibility.

Extensive renovation in 2019

From May 2019 to January 2020 the hotel, which is located directly at the spa gardens of the city, was extensively renovated. The new industrial design is pleasantly casual and very versatile: natural materials and wood-panelled walls create a warm atmosphere. Exposed ceilings suddenly come into their own – and the rooms visually gain height. Concrete radiates clarity and on the walls you can discover exciting details, such as original construction drawings from 1972, which were sketched onto the material at the time.

High expectations in terms of appearance and functionality

“The Seminaris hotels are turning into think tanks. We have created a creative environment in which companies can develop new ideas and shape change processes – beyond frontal meetings,” says Patrick Krüger, General Manager of Seminaris Hotel Lüneburg. The rooms were not only designed to be visually appealing, the company also sets the highest standards in terms of functionality. For example, there are flexible walls that can be written on. And trainers who work according to the “New Work” concept will find all the materials they need for their workshops on site. Special trainers are provided by the company through its own network, as are moderators and keynote speakers.

Ball pool for adults

Guests’ creativity is stimulated by unusual features and rooms – for example, a huge ball pool where adults can take an inspiring bath. “This way, you can switch off strategic thinking for a while and search for ideas more easily,” explains Patrick Krüger. There are islands of calm or a kicker table for relaxing breaks. And there is a completely darkened room – the Darkroom, in which a projector shines star images onto the black ceiling. “In the silence here you can withdraw and relax or hold meetings. This unusual environment gives special impulses.” A further highlight is a rhetoric studio in which voice, gestures and facial expressions can be trained under professional conditions and assignments as a speaker on large stages can be simulated.

Creative craftsmanship

The Seminaris Hotel Lüneburg is a place of tranquillity and relaxation, but also of meeting and communication. Several long tables in the restaurant area, which can seat up to twelve people, show how friends can sit together and discuss – and eat very well: The in-house à-la-carte restaurant ;Catalpa was reopened and convinces with a regional menu. In the Seminaris Hotel, the cuisine has been redesigned, the brunch has been revitalized and a gastronomic concept has been developed that convinces guests with fresh, regional and seasonal dishes.

Seminaris Hotel Bad Honnef Konferenzfoyer

Seminaris Hotel Bad Honnef surprises with exciting details


Seminaris Hotel Bad Honnef surprises with exciting details

July 8, 2020

Seminaris Hotel Bad Honnef Konferenzfoyer

With its location directly at the spa gardens of the city, the hotel breathes pure nature. Inside, a creative meeting concept based on the concept of New Work, allows guests to experience fresh ideas and a completely relaxed stay with many exciting moments.

Whoever enters the Seminaris Hotel Bad Honnef still has the good air of the spa gardens in his nose and is immediately wrapped up in the relaxed ambience that characterises this hotel: At the reception, you are charmingly introduced to each other, the meeting rooms are surprisingly varied and everywhere there are things to discover that stimulate creativity. The entire hotel has been renovated and designed in a modern industrial design. This new design gives the business hotel a particularly fresh and inspiring atmosphere.

Thanks to a well thought-out package of measures relating to hygiene, catering and guest care, the hotel, like all Seminaris hotels, is optimally equipped to comply with the security regulations for Covid-19. From masks at check-in to breakfast in the room to a coffee break directly in the conference room, everything is established to ensure a relaxed overnight stay, meetings and meals. The hotel team focuses above all on attentive and sensitive care of the visitors as well as a maximum of flexibility.

All meeting rooms on one level

A total of 20 conference rooms are available for creative meetings. They are all on the same level and are therefore easy to reach and very communicative. Above all, since the hotel was rebuilt in 2019, they surprise with many details: in a large ball pool for adults, you can immerse yourself deeply in the colourful balls and come up with new ideas. The Silent Room offers the opportunity to retreat in deep silence, to reflect – and to break out to new shores. It can also be an unusual and therefore all the more creative impulse to sit in absolute darkness in the Dark Room – and to deal with topics without visual distraction, even in the context of joint meetings. There are areas with unusual seating, such as designer chairs or even staircases, which are particularly inviting for communication. You can just as easily retreat and relax in rocking chairs or even swing in a hammock. In the 211 rooms of the house there is also room for large groups. The culinary delights match the casual ambience: During the creative coffee breaks, snacks such as crispbreads, smoothies or gummi bears are available on request.

Comprehensive equipment with conference materials for “New Work

The event areas of the Seminaris Hotel Bad Honnef not only offer many exciting wow moments in design and furnishing, but above all a complete range of high-quality materials that are needed for modern conferences and presentations according to the concept of New Work. This includes, for example, the colourful bricks that can be used in the LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® method to develop new ideas through fiddling and plugging, to promote communication within the team and to accelerate problem solving. “Seminaris also maintains a network of trainers and coaches on the topics that companies need in transformation processes,” explains Daniel Maurer, General Manager of the company. “Here we are very happy to support our guests in finding the right speakers for their events”.

Everything under one roof

This complete package can be called a “one-stop solution”: Conference hosts will find everything they need for an all-round successful event at the Seminaris Hotel Bad Honnef – from the room and support in planning to moderation technology and accommodation. “I am convinced that the concept of ‘New Work’ is the future”, says Maurer. “It stands for values such as independence, freedom of action and participation in the community, and thus for a working world in which people can use their personality to contribute to their work. We not only support our guests on this path, but also implement it ourselves with our employees. “I think we have already managed to live and integrate this in Bad Honnef well as a team. This creates a particularly charismatic atmosphere and also leads to greater effectiveness. We achieve goals together and faster, are thus economically more successful and secure jobs in the long term”. The employees are accompanied during the process with individual coaching.

Unique location

Another highlight for the guests of the Seminaris Hotel Bad Honnef is the huge outdoor area directly at the hotel, which opens up to a park: Here a variety of events can take place in the open air. In general, the location of the hotel is unique: directly at the spa gardens of the city, in the middle of greenery. And at the same time very central and easily accessible: The tram only takes about 15 minutes from Bonn. It is a ten-minute walk to the ferry pier of the Düsseldorf and Bonn shipping companies. Cologne/Bonn airport can be reached in about 30 minutes by car or taxi. The A3 highway is very close by and there are plenty of parking spaces directly at the hotel.

Seminaris SeeHotel Potsdam Tagungsraum Berlin Brandenburg

All Seminaris hotels open again


All Seminaris hotels open again

May 15, 2020

Seminaris SeeHotel Potsdam Tagungsraum Berlin Brandenburg

We are ready: On 25 May all Seminaris hotels will open their doors again! Thanks to an all-round well thought-out concept, not only stays for relaxation will then be possible, but also conferences and events – of course in accordance with all safety, hygiene and disinfection standards in line with the recommendations of the WHO and the Robert Koch Institute as well as the guidelines of the federal government and the individual regulations of the federal states.

With its extensive experience in the field of conferences, events and seminars, the Seminaris team has developed professional standards for the time of Covid-19 at an early stage and can now flexibly adapt them to new requirements and continue to optimise them. In the past weeks five of the eight Seminaris hotels throughout Germany were closed. When all of them open, the capacities and room plans for events will be adjusted, with particular attention to maintaining the distance rule. Everything has been well thought out, including, of course, the culinary aspect: food will be served in accordance with the guidelines of the Federal Government and the individual regulations of the federal states. For breakfast, where a buffet is not yet available, there are four varied variations to choose from, including croissant and wholemeal rolls with jams and honey and yoghurt (“Tiffanny”) or crispy stone-baked sourdough bread with ham, cheese and fried eggs (“Hans sein Sandwich”). These menus can be picked up at the restaurant, eaten there or ordered to your room.

Flexible cancellation conditions

There is currently a wide range of offers for the rooms and very flexible cancellation conditions apply: Everything is geared towards a high degree of flexibility and agility. In addition to the best available rate (Seminaris Agile), the hotels also offer best deals, early booking deals and special offers for seven or 14 nights. Anyone who wants to relax for a longer period of time, whether for an intensive work phase or for sustained regeneration, can rent apartments for at least one month at the Seminaris Hotels Bad Boll, Lüneburg and Bad Honnef at a particularly favourable rate.

Selected hotels also offer a “Weekend Feeling” weekend offer or an attractive single room offer – “City Friends – You and Nature”. Enhancements can be added to all offers: Behind “Cowork & Sleep” or “Citylife Adventure” are additional services such as the use of printers, business lunch offers or a box of office supplies. Jochen Swoboda, Director of Operations at Seminaris Hotels, explains: “Over the past few weeks, we have been in continuous contact with our customers and guests, have adapted existing bookings to meet their specific needs, and above all, have asked them about their requirements and flexibly adapted our offers to meet them. In order to give our guests security, we also make it transparent at all times how we are implementing the currently necessary security and hygiene measures and how we will continue with any renovation work in our hotels that is not yet completed”.

Meeting in nature

Since all Seminaris Hotels are located in or close to nature, they offer the unique opportunity to hold meetings outdoors – or simply to step out of the meeting rooms directly into the countryside and sit and work together longer when the weather is fine. In the fresh air, in a relaxed atmosphere and surrounded by greenery, you will feel completely different and the energy flow in your body will be strengthened. The Seminaris Hotels have also had very good experiences with their “Walking Break” offer for a long time: brainstorming sessions or the search for the solution to a concrete challenge are simply moved outside. With a task and provisions in your luggage, you set off on a walk where you can discuss, create and decide. This format is part of the comprehensive orientation towards sustainable, modern world of work, based on the New Work concept, which Seminaris realises in all its hotels.

If companies want to be sure that more colleagues can participate in a conference, they can use the “Hybrid Conferences”. This involves holding smaller meetings in one of the rooms of the Seminaris Hotels, which then acts as a “satellite station”: From there, the event will be transmitted via live streaming to other conference rooms or even worldwide to any location. This not only allows more participants to participate, but also saves on travel and is therefore climate- and cost-friendly.
