Conference of the Month Germany – Hotel Frankenland
Hotel and conference centre in one, Hotel Frankenland in Bad Kissingen combines the individuality and flexibility of a boutique hotel with the space only large-chain hotels can rival. Here, guests’ wishes come true, whether they involve a chain reaction with 200 people or a predator prowling the grounds.
Conveniently situated in the heart of Germany, Hotel Frankenland’s guests are as diverse as the services it offers. Couples, groups of ladies on wellness breaks, conference guests, business travellers, commuters, weekenders, health-conscious spa aficionados and culturally inspired guests flock here to enjoy the best experience a hotel can offer.
Conferences are especially popular at Hotel Frankenland, as it provides an infrastructure for large meetings and symposia while still being able to focus on individuality. “Despite offering 500 rooms and three conference centres with 25 rooms for 1,800 guests, our house retains its personality,”says Andrea Hergenröther, chief executive of Hotel Frankenland.“Our employee’s individuality is being encouraged and breathed, and we rely on charm and character rather than on stereotypical hotel catchwords. The‘BÄM’[‘boom’] and spirit of our employees are what sets our four-star superior event hotel apart from bland conference hotel blocks where guests are boxed into boring bedrooms.” Not restricted by any hotel chain’s rules and regulations, Hotel Frankenland oozes individuality and flexibility and improvements can be discussed, decided and put into action internally.“Our central location and attractive pricing set us apart from our competitors too,”says Hergenröther.
From wellness to free fall
Apart from the generous conference centres, Hotel Frankenland offers various catering options – a banquet hall for 500 people, two à la carte restaurants, the Frankenland Stuben and the Rôtisserie as well as two buffet restaurants and a vaulted cellar for dining. The most popular attraction is the AquaWell pool area including sauna areas on more than 3,000 square metres. The equally impressive spa provides a space for relaxation and treatments that spoil the body and soul. The facilities also include a pool for sports fans and a gym area. Two bars and a dance club provide ample opportunities for a different kind of recreation.
The KISSPARK caters for outdoor enthusiasts and adrenaline junkies alike. Paintball, GoKart and Free Fall are just some of the activities offered on a regular basis. Those who want to experience the world outside Bad Kissingen and Hotel Frankenland from a different perspective may enjoy a flight in a motorised paraglider.
Conferences with a“boom”
“Our longstanding conference clients include Siemens, Continental, Technogym, Audi BKK and more.The planning for these clients is usually done blindfolded, as we and our clients can work together as a winning team,” explains Hergenröther. The conference complex comprises 2,500 square metres and offers three conference centres, three cafeterias, two exclusive banqueting halls and an outdoor event space. Whether seminars, conferences, symposia, congresses or exhibitions, Hotel Frankenland offers a suitable solution for both small and large groups. Wi-Fi, movie screens, beamers, audio and video solutions, microphones, speakers and high-voltage connections are just some of the extras that may be included. The all-inclusive conference offer is a great solution which comprises, amongst other perks, a free sports and wellness package for all conference attendees.
“When we cater for new clients, wishes and specifications often change on site, but due to our decades of experience in the conference sector, spontaneity does not pose a hurdle for us,” Hergenröther says. Average conferences are therefore a rarity at Hotel Frankenland, with their special events partner pro-log offering unusual outdoor experiences from rock climbing and stays in winter bivouacs to archery and crossing ravines as well as dedicated teambuilding activities and management seminars.“We like to reminisce about the time a tiger was let loose on our premises, a chain reaction with 200 people was initiated on our event green or the time we produced 100-kilowatt electricity at the Forum Frankenland for a presentation of saucepans curated by cooking accessories company AMC,”says Hergenröther.
Not surprisingly, the year 2016 holds many secrets in store for guests of Hotel Frankenland. Having recently transformed the banqueting hall ‘Forum Frankenland’, which now includes state-of-the-art LED lighting, the new year will see the re-styling of the second banqueting hall in a completely new look.“There is one little secret that I can share with you,” Hergenröther says. “We plan to expand our premises in 2016 from the current 16,000 square metres to 20,000 square metres. Keep your eyes peeled!”
