Urban Honey by Kempinski

Everything you wanted to know about our very special ''Urban Honey''.

In 2013, it was our Executive Chef James Norman who came up with the amazing idea to have our own apiary on the roof of the hotel. It didn't take long and we found our own ''Beeman'' who set up the apiary and who borrowed us a part of his hive. To be exact, 50,000 of his little bees, that moved to two beehives on the roof of Grand Hotel Kempinski Geneva, 27 m above the city.

Chocolate 4

Raise your hand if you like chocolate!

Is there actually somebody who didn’t do so? Well, everybody loves chocolate and whoever says they don’t, is probably lying ;) It is scientifically proven that eating chocolate can significantly influence one’s mood, generally leading to an increase in pleasant feelings and a reduction of tension. Additionally, simply smelling chocolate increases one’s theta brain waves, which can trigger relaxation. This means that chocolate is not a food, it’s literally a medicine!
