Your family Schleunung
By nature, hospitality has been our family’s responsibility: In 2014 the Zeller Hotel & Restaurant was handed over to the fourth generation, from Renate Schleunung, née Zeller, to her daughter Alexandra Schleunung. But the same philosophy lives on: Quality and well-being of our guests remain our top priority.
1914 Situated on the Reichsstraße, from Aschaffenburg to Frankfurt, opposite the former customs office on the Bavarian-Hessian border in Kahl, August Lambertus built a Wine & Cider pub and operated it for several years. After the expansion, the business faced financial difficulties and was offered for sale. Johann Zeller bought the property in Kahl in 1914.
1927 This year the business expanded by opening a butcher's shop on the ground floor and more rooms got added on the upper floor. Rosina Zeller was responsible for the shop and kitchen and conjured up dishes that attracted many guests from near and far.
1946 After their marriage in 1946, the newlywed Alfred and Emma Zeller gradually took over the inn together with the guesthouse and the butcher’s shop from the older generation. Rosina and Emma Zeller complemented each other in the shop and in the kitchen, as is so common in a family business.
1956 Alfred and Emma Zeller took over the hotel business in the spirit of the previous generation. In 1955 the inn had seven guest rooms and a hall of 60 sqm as well as the butchery and the shop. The carnival events of the 1950s and 1960s were simply legendary. First thoughts of further expansion of the restaurant and guesthouse gained a foothold.
1967 The new hotel building was opened in 1966 in the former vegetable garden.
1982 Daughter Renate Schleunung, née Zeller, took over the Guesthouse and Hotel Zeller and continued just like the previous generations focusing on quality and further growth.
2014 After more than 100 years and three successful generations, the Zeller Hotel & Restaurant went over to the 4th generation: From the mother Renate Schleunung to the daughter Alexandra Schleunung.
It is about 16 km from Kahl am Main to Aschaffenburg. The cultural city with its southern flair and mild climate is also often called “the Bavarian Nice”. The impressive Palace Johannisburg: the magnificent Renaissance building made of red sandstone was the second residence of the archbishops and electors of Mainz until 1803. The old town of Aschaffenburg with its beautiful half-timbered houses, many small shops, cafés and restaurants attract visitors from far and near. If one wants to relax in between, there is the beautifully laid Schöntal park in the middle of the town where you can find, among other things, the largest magnolia grove in the state of Bavaria.
It is only 14 km drive from the Zeller Hotel & Restaurant to Seligenstadt. Situated in Hesse, on the river Main this picturesque historic old town is adorned with small alleys and well-kept half-timbered houses. The former Benedictine abbey with its mill, the fantastic monastery garden and the monastery café is well worth a visit. As a contrast to the cultural attraction, there is the pinball and arcade museum with over 200 machines, on which you can still play pinball. It is open every first Saturday of the month.
It is about 37 km from our hotel to Frankfurt – the metropolis on the river Main with its famous skylines. Here you will find tradition and modernity in one place: for example, the Main Tower, at a height of 198 metres above sea level offers you a breath-taking view of the entire city. Another popular cultural attraction is the former residence of Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, where a museum now honours the renowned German poet.
Frankfurt’s landmark is the Römerberg, the historic square with the impressive town hall building which no one should miss. Zeil is the shopping high street – one of the largest shopping streets in Germany. And if you are looking for some peace and quiet afterwards, the Palm Garten is the perfect place. This large botanical garden awaits you with tropical plants and a waterfall.
