Hyatt Hotels plans to open its seventh property in Germany when it debuts the Neues Schloss Baden-Baden, a Hyatt Hotel, in a 16th century castle in 2018.

Taking its name from "new castle" in German, the 146-room property in Baden-Baden, Germany, will be developed by Badriah Investments BV. The hotel, with views of the Black Forest, will also feature a spa and will have access to more than more than an acre of grounds and parkland.

Baden-Baden is in southwestern Germany near the French border about 70 miles west of Stuttgart.
