The restaurant Wintergarten is flooded with natural light all year round, with floor to ceiling windows opening onto the park terrace, with views over the River Oos that runs through our gardens and onto the famous Lichtentaler Allee. In the summer months the terrace is open and our grand piano is moved outside for evening concerts to accompany elegant dining. Throughout the year piano music drifts through from the adjacent Oleander Bar. The menu changes daily with seasonal ingredients and the availability of local produce such as Black Forest trout and golden chanterelles.
Joël Ellenberger from Nürensdorf near Zurich is responsible for the Wintergarten's kitchen under the leadership of our long-standing kitchen director Rudolf Pellkofer.
The 23-year-old was and is passionately and enthusiastically involved in shaping the gastronomic concept of the all-day restaurant. In close cooperation with Sascha Doeur as deputy and a young international team, he works every day to further develop the restaurant, which has been established in the region for many years.
The young chef is enthusiastic about a product-oriented cuisine that scores points with exquisite regional products. What it is all about: a light, contemporary, French-style cuisine and a reinterpretation of the classics. The newly designed Wintergarten menu bears his unmistakable signature.
