An introduction to Wilmina

How would you describe Wilmina in a nutshell?

Wilmina is a family-run hotel that offers guests a high level of tranquility and comfort. It is a place of encounter and discovery, contemplation and retreat. Wilmina stands for a revitalised ensemble in a unique location.

What is the story behind Wilmina, what was your inspiration to create it?

The hotel was created in a former courthouse and women’s prison, which is part of a listed 19th-century ensemble. After 10 years of transformation by Gruentuch Ernst Architects, it became a hidden oasis, complete with lush gardens and interflowing courtyards. In dialogue with the existing spaces and traces of its former use, Wilmina became a contemplative space of retreat in the middle of Berlin.

How would you describe the atmosphere and the interior design of Wilmina?

Wilmina offers comfort and tranquility in the midst of the vibrant city, allowing guests to discover a place that could not be more relaxing. 

Each of the rooms combines historical authenticity with modern luxuries and comforts, yet without imposing or distracting opulence. Despite their similarities, each of the rooms is unique. But they all feature light colours, soft textures and warm, high-quality materials to create calming retreats. 

On the new penthouse floor, there are clean lines and floor-to-ceiling windows that offer views across the courtyards and gardens. The new rooms are minimalist, clean and calm; yet they have a poetic touch. 

To you personally, what is so special about Wilmina?

Wilmina is a hidden oasis created in a place that was long forgotten and remained inaccessible for decades. In this lively yet contemplative space, guests can escape the hustle and bustle of everyday urban life, without forgoing the opportunity for exchange and communal togetherness.

Wilmina rooms & rates

Hotel guests enter the lobby from the garden courtyard and are greeted by a bright, high-ceilinged space. To the left, a gallery leads to the inviting fireplace lounge where you’ll find complimentary coffee specialties and a selection of high-quality teas. Next to the fireplace lounge is our gaming room where guests can enjoy a round of billiards. 

To the right, a staircase leads to the atrium, which is located at the heart of the building and connects the four original floors with the newly added penthouse floor. A light installation with glass pendant luminaires playfully emphasises the height of the space. Like soap bubbles, they exude a lightness amidst the quiet, almost monastic atmosphere. 

In total, Wilmina offers 44 guest rooms. The spectrum ranges from cosy rooms (11 square metres) to the spacious Garden Loft (75 square metres) with its own staircase.

In the Lovis restaurant, the worlds of gastronomy and architecture meet in a unique way. Hidden within a building constructed using bricks from the refurbishment process, the restaurant is located in what was once an outdoor area, the Schleusenhof. Here, Sophia Rudolph and her team serve contemporary German cuisine, with a focus on seasonal and regional products of the highest quality. 

In the connecting Lovis Bar, the drinks crafted by Nils Lutterbach extend the philosophy of the kitchen: “purist, high-quality, understated”.

Things to do in Berlin

  • Shopping / Markets
  • Night life
  • Massages / Treatments

Berlin has something for everyone and these recommendations are a good starting point for exploring the city. They offer a varied insight into the city’s culture, history and culinary diversity:

In recent years, Berlin has developed into a culinary stronghold with an abundance of new, high-quality restaurants. Here, you can find first-class dishes representing cuisines from all corners of the globe.    Berlin has a rich history, with many historic places and authentic stores that bring it to life. A short stroll allows you to experience the old Berlin scene and its real flair. I’d recommend visiting some of the city’s traditional pubs, bookshops and flea markets to discover the local history and culture.

Berlin is a green city with many parks and lakes. The Lietzensee and Charlottenburg Palace Park are ideal places to enjoy nature. You can stroll along the banks, have a picnic or enjoy a coffee in the nearby cafes. Charlottenburg Palace itself is an impressive Baroque landmark and well worth a visit.

The location of Wilmina

Wilmina is located at Kantstrasse in Berlin-Charlottenburg. No other street in western Berlin is as international and vibrant, and hardly any other combines as many Berlin facets. Within walking distance are boutiques, restaurants, art galleries, theatres and cinemas. The famous Kurfürstendamm is a 10-minute walk away. 

More tourist sights, such as the Brandenburg Gate, Reichstagsgebäude, Gendarmenmarkt and many of Berlin’s world-class museums are just 10 minutes away with the S-Bahn, which connects S-Bahnhof Savignyplatz to the district of Mitte.

When is the best time to visit Berlin?

The best time to visit Berlin depends on your personal preferences, as each season offers unique experiences and has its own charm.    In summer, Berlin is lively and full of activities. The many parks, lakes, cafes and flea markets provide the perfect backdrop for enjoying the warm days. Open-air concerts and events also liven up the city. Completing the experience is the opportunity to relax in the Wilmina’s lush garden and rooftop pool.    Berlin in winter has a cosy and festive atmosphere. The museums and galleries are the perfect places to escape the cold weather while discovering the city’s rich culture and history. A popular tradition at this time of year is the Christmas markets, which offer mulled wine, crafts and festive cheer. At Wilmina, you can relax in the fireplace lounge, the library and the in-house sauna.   The cultural offerings in Berlin are diverse throughout the year. No matter what month you visit, you are sure to find a wealth of events, exhibitions and activities to suit your interests. Berlin is a city that never sleeps and where every season has its charm.
