We know there is pent-up demand for travel, especially among luxury clients with deep pockets who can afford to steal away to towns less traveled and hotels that serve as oases from the everyday.

Kempinski’s new Your 5-star Road Trip programs speak to just that client. They might not be able to travel just yet, but these itineraries will have them lusting to get on the next plane to Germany, Hungary, Kenya….

Numerous Kempinski hotels have joined forces with sister hotels in a not-too-far-away destination to offer these splendorous road trip itineraries. Your clients will visit two Kempinski hotels while on their individual trip, getting around in their own car or motorbike, or, in some cases, in a Sixt rental car.

In Munich, the Hotel Vier Jahreszeiten Kempinski in the elegant Maximilianstrasse, for example, can be combined on a road trip through the Bavarian Alps to Kempinski Hotel Berchtesgaden, including stops in charming villages, at Chiemsee, at Herrenchiemsee Castle or in Maria Gern. A luxury road trip of a completely different kind is offered by Villa Rosa Kempinski Hotel Nairobi in Kenya, where guests leave the big city behind and drive through the lush green of the landscapes to the vast steppes and the fascinating wilderness of the savannah. Safaris are then experienced from Olare Mara Kempinski in the Masai Mara, where guests reside in the elegant ambiance of luxury tents in the midst of nature.

A special combination is also offered on a road trip from Kempinski Hotel Corvinus in Budapest to Grand Hotel Kempinski High Tatras in Slovakia. On the 217-mile journey from the Hungarian capital to the mountains of the High Tatras, guests drive through picturesque villages and scenery with panoramic views, nature parks and UNESCO-protected, historical places.


This historic flyer from 1932 promoted, in Berlin’s Kempinski restaurants, a road trip by car from Berlin to the just-opened Kempinski Hotel Schloss Marquardt with an overnight stay.

“To adapt a travel route flexibly, to choose one’s own playlist and to enjoy the view a little longer according to one’s own taste—this is the freedom we all long for at the moment, whether it’s a short weekend trip or a trip to a neighboring country,” said Amanda Elder, CCO and member of the Kempinski Management Board, in a press release statement. “Even on already well-known routes, there are still so many things to discover—crowning the day with a stay in one of our luxury hotels.”
