New life at the main telegraph office in Berlin

Opened in 1916, the main telegraph office was once the postal and communications centre of Berlin and had one of the largest pneumatic tube systems in Europe. Located directly on the Museum Island, the building has been renovated in recent years. The result is the Hotel Telegraphenamt, which offers its visitors a wide range of gastronomy, scene and culture.

The building has kept its neo-baroque façade on the outside. Inside, the original building elements such as the historic columns, capped ceilings and exposed brick walls have been integrated into the modern interior design. With 97 rooms, several individual restaurant, bars and cafés, a 1,200 sqm gym and 1,000 sqm of private event space, a hotspot for locals and globals has been created.

In the telegraph office, it can sometimes take longer than usual

The restaurant "Root" offers a variety of tastes and influences with high-quality products and their creative handling from different parts of the world. The Root is not about trends on the plate, it is about the root of taste.

Cosy seating areas and lush planting create a lot of space. The Ming Green marble from China covers the benches and gives a welcoming flair. Its light green tones with white veining delivers a natural character that invites for a comfortable feeling. A perfect atmosphere for dining and lounging time.

The passion of nature

Right next to the restaurant is the "Root" bar. At this place, the love for the product, its origin and the modern interior are continued. The bar top is made out of the very amazing Rain Forest Brown serpentinite. With its lively structure, its earthy nuances and in a U-shape of 5.6x5x4 metres, it is the visual eye-catcher in the bar. The top with its leathered surface, offers the setting for an optical and tasteful discovery.
