Impressive water feature
The Kempinski Hotel Frankfurt has followed examples from Dubai and Las Vegas with an impressive water, light and sound spectacle. The water features are the attraction for guests and visitors on the hotel‘s own lake. 116 SPECK pumps are behind the up to 30 m high fountains.
The management of the Kempinski Hotel Frankfurt Gravenbruch wanted the hotel complex to attract more visitors. Hotel, event and conference guests should be as impressed as visitors to the restaurants, bars, terraces and wellness area on the 15 hectare property.
This objective was achieved in summer 2018 with a programmable water show on the hotel‘s own lake. It is one of the few facilities of this kind put into operation in a German hotel. The spectacle was inspired by the world-famous Bellagio fountains in Las Vegas and the Dubai fountain in the Burj Khalifa in Dubai.
With the exception of the winter months, up to 116 colourful fountains are reflected on the 14,000 m² water surface of the lake every evening. They dance almost 30 meters high, individually choreographed to various pieces of music - classical or pop and impressively illuminated by coloured spotlights. The lake terrace of the hotel restaurant Levante offers visitors a first-class view of the spectacle. In combination with the Arabic specialities served in the restaurant, the fountains provide a very special feeling.
The installation can be adapted to your own music or corporate colors for company and family celebrations. The 200 m² floating platform houses 116 individually controllable SPECK pumps, almost half of which are operated with frequency converters. With a water circulation of 16,000 litres per minute, they ensure impressive fountain formations. They are illuminated in 16 million possible colours by 145 LED spotlights, which can also be controlled individually.
