A large-scale project has drawn to a close

Kempinski Hotel Frankfurt New Front Entrance kleinThe kick-off was almost three years ago: The fundamental refurbishment and partial reconstruction of the Kempinski Hotel Frankfurt started in spring 2012. Now the hotel shines in a new distinctive style that revives the property's historic character and, at the same time, accentuates the rural charm of the former estate and hunting lodge. And, more than ever, we are looking forward to welcoming you as our guests.
