Beekeeping Chefs

Beekeeping Chefs

Would you believe that on the roof of Jumeirah Frankfurt in Germany there are around 40,000 bees in four beehives? These are normal honey bees that can fly up to 3kms in search of different plants around the city.

Once a week a beekeeper comes to collect the honey from the hive, process it and bring it back to the hotel. On the breakfast buffet in the signature restaurant, Max On One, the ‘Skyline’ honey is served directly from the honeycomb – you can even buy a pot of honey to take home as a souvenir, enjoy a honey mocktail at Ember Bar & Lounge or indulge in a honey scrub at Talise Spa. 

Two weeks before the opening of Jumeirah Frankfurt, the beekeeper brought four wooden boxes containing about 10,000 bees each to the hotel. They were then transported through the lobby to the roof, where they now live.
