Describe yourself in three words:

Courageous, headstrong, vivacious

What was the most memorable moment in your career so far?

My new challenge of working as general manager, which presented itself quite suddenly to me.

What do you cherish most about your daily work routine?

The teamwork I witness in our hotel as well as unexpected new challenges every day. I appreciate meeting the most different kinds of people and making their stay at carathotel Düsseldorf City as pleasant as possible.

What do you expect to be your biggest professional and personal challenges this year?

The biggest job-related challenges will certainly be the pre-opening and opening phase of our new hotel located in Düsseldorf’s Berliner Allee as well as proving myself worthy of the managing director position. In my personal life, I imagine that building “my own home” will certainly be a venture into the unknown.

What do you love most about Düsseldorf? Can you provide a hot insider tip for the city?

Düsseldorf is an amazing city with many different faces. Due to its numerous big events, the city is constantly changing with new people pouring in every day. It might not be much of an insider tip, but for those who like to dine out and love fish, the Meerbar in Düsseldorf’s Medienhafen is the perfect spot.

Dear Anika, we wish you much success with all the challenges you'll be facing!
