Set on 10 hectares of lush parkland in the Taunus mountain region northwest of Frankfurt-am-Main, the Villa Rothschild Kempinski is a 4.5-star hotel in an historic former summer residence of the illustrious Rothschild family.
Along with opportunities to explore the extensive estate grounds by walking or jogging, the Opel Zoo -- home to animals from Asia, Africa and Europe -- is only a 9-minute walk from the hotel. The 13th-century Kronberg Castle, originally owned by the Knights of Eschborn, is a 9-minute drive or a 36-minute walk from the hotel. The Hessenpark Open-Air Museum, set on 150 acres and containing over 100 historic buildings, many in the half-timbered style of the region, is a 22-minute drive away. Fans of famous Frankfurt writer Goethe can visit the Goethe-Haus Museum in the city, a 22-minute drive by car, but also accessible via bus or train from the hotel.
The 22 ornate, individually decorated rooms and suites feature antique furnishings and marble bathrooms, and include modern amenities such as Bang and Olufsen TVs with satellite channels, mini bars and free Wi-Fi. Some rooms also have balconies and gas fireplaces. Suites have extra sitting areas and views of the park or Kronberg Castle, and some include private terraces. A 24-hour room and concierge service is available.
Gourmet dining is offered in the elegant 2-Michelin-starred Restaurant Villa Rothschild and the exclusive, private Vinothek Villa Rothschild. Tizian's Bar & Brasserie offers relaxed French country fare with a creative twist, plus a bar and a wine cellar. A special Sunday brunch is served from 11am to 3pm. Guests have complimentary access to the local ASCARA Fitness Centre & Pool's heated outdoor pool and sauna. There is also the ASCARA spa, which offers health and beauty treatments (for a fee).
