After more than a year of renovation and redevelopment Villa Rothschild Kempinski has opened its gates in the Taunus as a charismatic boutique hotel on the height of fashion. From the cellar to the rooftop the heritage protected building was exten-sively renovated and redeveloped with a capital expenditure of about 8 million Euro. A perfect symbiosis of tradition and modern technique was created. 22 luxury rooms and elegant hotel facilities such as the unique Bar “Tizian's”, an excellent cuisine and an exclusively equipped winebar, offer the highest standard.
The boutique hotel Villa Rothschild Kempinski in Königstein today is an impressive witness of German history. Built between 1888 and 1894 as summer residence for the famous banker family Rothschild, its pompous opening in the year 1894 was celebrated with high-ranking guests such as Empress Viktoria and the Prince of Wales. After World War II the estate became the heart of the politic and economic reconstruction of Western Germany. In this unique location the decisive contracts for the founding of the Federal Republic of Germany were signed and therefore the Villa Rothschild Kempinski can truly be called the “cradle of the Federal Republic”.
