From delicious honey (made from beehives on the roof), the city’s abundance of shops and popular cultural attractions, these are the top five reasons to explore Jumeirah Frankfurt on your next trip to Germany.
If you love to shop….
Jumeirah Frankfurt is perfectly located for those who enjoy a little retail therapy on their holidays. The hotel is connected to My Zeil, a stunning architectural feat that covers 77,000 square metres of space. The futuristic design gives the mall an unforgettable edge, and it is connected to the Zeil, Germany’s busiest shopping street. The luxury shopping district of Goethestrasse is just around the corner too, meaning you’ll have no shortage of shops to explore during your stay!

It’s located next to the prestigious Thurn-und-Taxis-Palais
Jumeirah Frankfurt’s location means it has a particularly important next door neighbour – the 18th century Barqoue Thurn-und-Taxis-Palais. The hotel forms part of the Palais Quartier complex, a huge redevelopment project in the city that is one of the most significant in Europe. The blend of old world refinement with modern day luxury and sophistication gives the area an unparalleled ambience that you’ll love to soak in as you explore its surrounds.
Location, location, location….
As a tourist, navigating your way through foreign transport systems can sometimes be stressful – but you won’t have to worry about that during your stay at Jumeirah Frankfurt as it’s within walking distance of some of the city’s top attractions. The Alte Oper (Old Opera House), City Hall, Museum of Modern Art and Goethe House can each be reached in roughly 10 minutes on foot from the hotel’s front door, and Messe Frankfurt (the city’s exhibition centre) can be reached in 35 minutes (or in under 15 minutes by car if you’ve had enough walking for the day!).
The homemade honey
Jumeirah Frankfurt – bee-lieve it or not – is home to a colony of honey bees which live in four beehives on the rooftop. They fly up to the three kilometres in search of plants and flowers, usually around the banks of the River Main and the Palmengarten botanical gardens, and the hotel’s resident beekeeper collects the honey around once a week. During your stay, there are several ways you can enjoy the honey – the first is at the breakfast buffet where you can sample it direct from the honeycomb, the second is at the Talise Spa with its Skyline Honey Treatment and lastly, at Ember Bar & Lounge which uses it some of its cocktail creations.
Calling all art lovers…
In addition to the hotel’s public areas, in every room at Jumeirah Frankfurt hangs an original painting by German artist Hartwig Ebersbach. Such a collection makes it the largest in the world, with many of the pieces coming out of the artist’s “Kaspar” series. These paintings are said to be reflective of changes happening in the society at the time, and depict the controversy between seriousness and humour.
