Vienna House announces new hotel acquisition in Kronberg im Taunus

Vienna House Kronberg im Taunus

Vienna House, Austria’s largest hotel group, has signed the lease agreement for a 96-room hotel project in Kronberg im Taunus, a historic town and modern business centre close to Frankfurt.

The new hotel building forms part of a new urban development plan, ‘Musikquartier Kronberg’, designed by Staab Architekten of Berlin that will also include the construction of the adjacent music hall and the integration of the historic railway station. Vienna House signed the lease agreement with development firm Contraco GmbH on 7 December 2016. Construction of the new design hotel is scheduled to start in 2017; the grand opening is planned for the first quarter of 2019. 

Daniel Rinck, managing director of Contraco, and Rupert Simoner, CEO of Vienna House, agree on the chosen location of the new hotel. “Kronberg is a picturesque city and an important centre for business and research, and it offers direct commuter access to Frankfurt. This makes Kronberg such an interesting destination for a new Vienna House hotel. The concept – contemporary style and a luxurious, premium lightness – sealed the deal,” Rinck explains. “Vienna House fits perfectly with Kronberg and its high cultural standards.”

“We want to encourage travel and adventure. Vienna House hotels are casual yet high-class. Our focus isn’t on short-lived lifestyle fads, but on fantastic and timeless design, a local connection, sophisticated products, and employees that are authentic hosts,” says Simoner, describing his strategy. While this sounds simple, it actually requires seeing everything from the guests’ point of view and focusing on the beauty of the simple things in life. Raimund Trenkler, Chairman of the Kronberg Academy Foundation, is clearly delighted at the management agreement, “the hotel is an important contribution toward the development of the Musikquartier and will offer our artists and guests the familiar atmosphere they are looking for.”

The new hotel design will play with the themes of travel, business and music and will subtly use the historic train station and adjacent chamber music hall as inclusive style elements. The lobby is the heart of the hotel and will beat with a relaxed and easy-going rhythm. It will be a meeting place with a living room atmosphere, friendly bar and sun terrace. Breakfast will be served in a home-style kitchen environment, lunch and dinner will reflect the freshness and variety of a weekly market, and the bar will beckon with a lounge-like atmosphere and the most stylish drinks. 

It will also offer a creative meeting concept in its two 50 square metre meeting rooms. A fitness area, an underground car park and a bus parking lot will also form part of the hotel. 

State-of-the-art technology will include free high-speed WiFi, the Vienna House Mobile Concierge, self check-in/check-out and an environmentally friendly mobility concept. Following the grand opening, Vienna House will operate 16 hotels in Germany and 17 more all over Europe.
