With previous lives as a manor house, flour mill and tannery dating as far back as the 14th century, the Gerbermühle was razed during World War II and not rebuilt until the 1970s. Today, the design hotel is dedicated to the friends and lovers of German writer Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, who once lived there for a year. The 19 rooms, filled with thoughtful details like antique side tables and upholstered armchairs, range from 260-960 square feet and benefit from a prime location directly on the River Main, and some historic elements such as stone walls remain. Attracting travelers and locals alike, the bar serves up excellent cocktails; try the Lemongrass Sour 10, a fusion of lemongrass infused gin, maraschino, lime juice, simple syrup and egg white.
Time Out tip: A restaurant and self-service beer garden make the terrace one of the best places in the city to enjoy a warm summer evening.
