Wenaas-gruppen’s Acquisition of the Radisson Blu Hotel in Hambur


Luther and ATOZ have advised on the transaction

The Norwegian family-owned business Wenaasgruppen purchased the Radisson Blu Hamburg Dammtor Hotel in mid-March 2017. Radisson Blu, with a height of 108 m, is the second highest inhabited building in Hamburg and is only surpassed by the Elbphilharmonie (the new Elbe Philharmonic Hall). The purchase of the impressive building shows the confidence of Wenaasgruppen in Hamburg’s growing international touristic appeal triggered by the Elbphilharmonie and the Congress Center Hamburg (CCH).

This textile and real estate company already owns several hotels in Germany.

The seller is Azure Hotels, which is based in Luxembourg.
