Arabella-Hochhaus is a 23-storey, 75 m (246 ft), skyscraper designed by architect Toby Schmidbauer.[4] It was constructed from 1966 to 1969 by Josef Schörghuber [de] in Munich, Germany. Until the 1990s, the former Musicland Studios was located in its basement. The building is located at Arabellapark, part of the Bogenhausen neighborhood in the East of Munich. In order to meet demand for hotel rooms during the 1972 Olympic Games the building was partly converted into Arabella Bogenhausen Hotel, operated by Hilton Hotels & Resorts and hence shortened to 'Munich Hilton'. It offered 467 rooms, which was one of the largest hotels in the Munich area at those times. In 1998 a joint venture was formed between Arabella Hotel Holding and Starwood Hotels and the hotel was renamed ArabellaSheraton Bogenhausen. It has since been renamed Sheraton Munich Arabellapark Hotel.The company now operates the hotel jointly with The Westin Grand Munich which is located across the street. In addition to the hotel, the building is at present home to two clinics, 500 rental apartments, and 100 offices and surgeries. The rooftop features a large spa area.

Arabella-Hochhaus is also located in close vicinity to the headquarters of HypoVereinsbank (Hypo-Haus).

In 2026 they are going to demolish it.
