A classic German castle, preserved to perfection
- 61 rooms and suites
- Beauty salon
- Golf course
Whisk yourself away to this lavish castle hotel that dates back to the 1800s, and is set above the atmospheric town of Kronberg, fringed by expansive parkland and an 18-hole golf course. The former home of the Empress Victoria Friedrich, Schlosshotel Kronberg still retains an unparalleled level of opulence, ensuring that every guest is treated like royalty.
The interiors are ornamented with the empress’ original paintings and antiques, and magnificent remnants include gilded Venetian mirrors, stain-glass windows and Limoges porcelain. Upon entering the hotel’s majestic hall, you’ll be struck by the grand fireplace, the plush decor and an undeniable feeling of imperial lavishness.
Throughout the rooms and suites, this sentiment is maintained, with individually designed spaces embracing warm tones, antique furnishings, chandeliers, intricately patterned wallpaper and large windows looking out across the grounds. Upgraded rooms offer balconies, with seating and city vistas and suites have living areas, with a few featuring kitchenettes and fireplaces. The Royal Suite, the historical living quarters of the last German Emperor, Frederick II, is listed for historical preservation and is an exceptional display of stately ambience.
A fine dining experience can be sought after at the Castle Restaurant, a chandelier-lit arrangement of wooden panels and sweeping curtains revealing an outdoor terrace, ideal for feasting in the summer months. Jimmy’s Bar, with an American theme, is a moody bolthole of leather seating, overlooked by stately portraits and traditional afternoon tea is served in the polished lounge.
Adjacent to the hotel, the golf course is one of the best greens in the Taunus, and promises a delightful game, with a handicap of 36 and a pleasant setting. After a round or two, you can take to the beauty salon for a pampering treatment or soothing massage.
