    Location 7.92 /10

    Wolfsburg is 124 mi from Berlin and the journey takes 55 minutes by high-speed train.
    The Ritz-Carlton is an integral part of the Volkswagen park and it is located next to a small lake in front of one of the large car company's factories. Indeed, the hotel is not far from the centre of the small industrial town that has been the home of Volkswagen since 1938. Don't miss the contemporary art museum next to the cultural centre that was built between 1958 and 1962 by the architect Alvar Aalto.

    Accommodation 8.70 /10

    The hotel has 200 staff members and 174 rooms. The rooms are intimate and have the same light lacquered wood panelling as the communal areas, as well as a heated marble bathroom floor, a shower and a bathtub, and a flat-screen television.Unlike the Ritz-Carlton in Berlin, there are no finger-tip control devices, but there is a brand new stereo and a CD with classical music, if that is your thing.The overall effect is harmonious and the room has the pleasant aroma of cocoa butter.Room service is available 24-hours a day, there is also a mini-bar fridge and the bed has a fair number of cushions.
    Curiously, there is a Protestant Bible on the bedside table; it is actually fairly common practice for German hotels to provide this for guests.

    Overview 8.95 /10

    The clean and subdued Ritz-Carlton Wolfsburg is a relaxing place to stay and its reception hall is bathed in light from the large bay picture window overlooking the small lake, opposite the factory.The whole hotel exudes a sensation of moderation, with well-designed spaces, nicely proportioned dimensions and tastefully furnished rooms.
    If your intention is to relax, head for the Kraftwerk Spa with its sauna, massage area and heated outdoor pool if you are feeling really brave!The hotel also has nine conference rooms and many other areas where guests can conduct business meetings or simply relax and unwind. There is the Newman bar, for example, which has a fine selection of alcoholic beverages from all over the world.

    Food and drink 8.95 /10

    The oval breakfast room, decorated in shades of beige, is open daily from 6:30 am to 11:00 am and it serves an international buffet.As in the Potsdamer Platz Ritz-Carlton, there are two restaurants here: the Grill and the Aqua.The Grill, a concept restaurant, is open from 12:00 pm to 2:00 pm for lunch and 6:00 pm to 11:00 pm for dinner. It serves a 'trio lunch', a meal in a triple dish allowing diners to taste the starter, main course and dessert without waiting in between courses. An example is the cream of chestnut soup, grilled beef steak and crème brûlée.Taking its name from the lake surrounding it, the Aqua restaurant is positioned on a sort of terrace over the water and has a large bay window. To reinforce the theme of transparency, all the tableware is made of glass. Sven Elveferd, one of the most famous chefs in Germany, has headed the restaurant for the past eight years. Originally trained as a pastry chef before working as a chef at the Ritz-Carlton in Dubai, Elveferd has been the making of the Aqua, which he created in 2001. Within 18 months of opening he was awarded his first Michelin star, before receiving a second in 2005 and a third in 2008.'Aqua' is now regarded as one of the best restaurants in the country.It is open in the evening from 6:30 pm to 12:30 am, and closed on Sundays and Mondays.

    To know

    The hotel opened in January 2000 and it was designed by Gunter Henn according to the idea of Taijitu (the Chinese symbol for the concept of Yin and Yang).
    In an attempt to avoid an angular construction, the rounded design places an emphasis on curves and the resulting combinations of shadow and light create the impression of never-ending corridors and a harmonious atmosphere where nothing is left to chance.The very location of the hotel, opposite an imposing factory, must have inspired the French designer, Andrée Putman (born in Paris in 1925). Such was Putman's fascination with industrial architecture and the stunning beauty of brick buildings, he likened the latter to women who are unaware of their natural beauty.
