10 reasons to visit: Jumeirah Frankfurt

Enjoy a room with a view

The skyscrapers of Frankfurt city and the Old Opera House glimmer in the west, while the European Central Bank and Offenbach reach up to the eastern horizon. The distant Taunus Mountains frame the sparkling city in the north, and the silvery Main River gently flows by the historic Frankfurt Cathedral in the south. At Jumeirah Frankfurt, you don’t have to go too far to enjoy this breath-taking tableau. The spacious open-plan layouts in the rooms and suites have been designed to maximise the splendid views from the hotel, while crisp, sophisticated interiors reflect the spirit of this vibrant city.

Try the Skyline honey

On the roof of Jumeirah Frankfurt 28 storeys above ground level, more than 40,000 bees are hard at work, creating the hotel’s very own golden nectar. It’s attracted a lot of attention over the years and was featured in the UK’s Daily Mail. Read more here ‘There’s a buzz in Frankfurt.’

Stay at the property and you can reap the benefits in more ways than one. Either pour it on your breakfast or experience the Talise Spa’s signature ‘Skyline Honey’ treatment made from granulated fruit and of course the famous honey. Afterwards, enjoy a relaxing head massage as your body is wrapped in softening essences. This is a one-of-a-kind, 60-minute treatment for the body, mind and soul that may well leave you feeling like queen bee.

You can explore by Velotaxi

Discover secret spots and major sightseeing destinations on the environmentally friendly Velotaxis. Sit comfortably, enjoy the fresh air and remain sheltered from any rain while city-savvy pedallers show off the sights of Frankfurt. This is an unforgettable way to see the Römer – city hall, the Old Opera House and the river embankment.

It’s environmentally friendly

Germany’s renewable energy sector is among the most innovative in the world so it’s no surprise that Jumeirah Frankfurt uses geothermal energy stored in the earth to heat the hotel’s water. Equipment is located 25-30 metres in the ground which taps into the thermal energy generated and stored beneath the property. In addition, the hotel features a hybrid room tempering system using body heat detectors and motion sensors that regulate all in-room energy consumption efficiently and sustainably. Another cost effective, reliable, sustainable and environmentally friendly system.  It’s also the only hotel in the city and one of just a few buildings in Germany that uses an unusual twin elevator system. The same elevator shaft is used for two cars that travel independently one above the other. This system results in a flexible, fast, and comfortable service, which also saves energy.

5. There’s a singing doorman

Jumeirah Frankfurt’s Derrick Smith is not just an excellent doorman but also a marvellous soul singer. Originally from Barbados, he joined Jumeirah Frankfurt in October 2011 as a doorman. However, in 2014, some of his colleagues discovered that he had a wonderful singing voice and he was invited to perform at the annual colleague party. He impressed everyone so much by his talent that he then secured a regular spot called “Soul in the City” at the Ember Bar & Lounge. Every Wednesday from 9 pm – 11 pm ‘Mr. Soul’ enters the stage and entertains guest with his powerful R’n’B and soul tunes.

Lots and lots of cultural attractions

Cultural attractions in Frankfurt range from the classical to the contemporary. To learn about Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, Frankfurt’s most famous writer, explore the exhibits at the Goethe House and Museum. Visit the Alte Oper (Old Opera House) for a glimpse of this elegant neo-Renaissance-style opera building then spend an afternoon at the Museumsufer – a district that is home to many Frankfurt museums. Here you can discover displays such as the interactive German Film Museum and the Jewish Museum.

7. Art galleries

You can find many world class art galleries and museums offering masterpieces by Monet, Picasso and more contemporary works. Art lovers can also admire the hotel’s original paintings from celebrated German artist Hartwig Ebersbach. Original paintings are displayed in every room and suite, as well as in public areas. Central themes in the artworks are dreams, tales and legends. The paintings on display in the hotel are part of the ‘Kaspar’ series which Ebersbach uses to draw attention to the changes in society.

Choose your table in view of the kitchen, in the separate private dining section or in the comfortable lounge with floor-to-ceiling bookshelves. The attention to detail and highest quality cuisine, combined with an uncomplicated, friendly service create a unique inviting atmosphere.

Try the famous Green Sauce

The legendary Frankfurt Gruene Sosse or Green Sauce not only has its own monument in Oberrad but there is also a dedicated festival held in the city. Experts go head-to-head and exhibit their own version of this special dish created from closely-guarded recipes handed down from generation to generation. Our chefs at Jumeirah Frankfurt have their own take on the sauce which is served as a pesto or a warm sauce with Frankfurter Pasta at the restaurant Max on One. Traditional versions are made with parsley, cress, sorrel, chervil, borrage, salad burnet and chives. These seven regional herbs are finely chopped and tossed together with a dash of legend, a pinch of fable, sprinkled with tradition, delicately seasoned and served with élan. 

Concierge tip

One of Frankfurt’s most popular attractions is the famous Apple Express (Ebbelwei-Expreß). This historical street-car takes its passengers on a merry tour of downtown Frankfurt. The tour operates on Saturdays, Sundays and public holidays, and takes its guests through the city’s old town and Sachsenhausen. Along the way you can enjoy listening to music, eat traditional pretzels and sample Frankfurt’s most popular apple beverage.
