Record-holding restaurants in Germany

When one thinks of records, one usually gets a picture of a huge muscle mountain pulling an 11 ton truck. Or Felix Baumgartner, jumping from the stratosphere with a parachute. In today's blog, we have gone a different route with culinary records.

Record-holding restaurants in Germany

#1 The smallest restaurant in Germany

You will need to get used to the idea : the smallest restaurant in Germany only has room to accommodate 4 guests but still convinces with its very own personal charm.

The Zollenspieker Pegelhäuschen is a small wooden hut about four meters above the Elbe. Built around 1880 and demolished in 1992, it was rebuilt thanks to donations.

Today the smallest restaurant in the world offers a unique setting for a meal for two or four. In a completely private atmosphere you sit over the river Elbe and can enjoy a fantastic view over the river. You will hear the soft rippling of the water, benefit from an exclusive and above all personal service and a fantastic 4-course menu including aperitif, wine and coffee.

#2 The best restaurant in Germany

Figures do not lie, nor do stars. Especially if there are Michelin stars. The guesthouse Klaus Erfort has a total of 3! In addition, it has earned a proud 19.5 of 20 Gault & Millau points.

This level has already been deserved for years and most visitors praise the restaurant on all rating platforms. No wonder it’s known as Germany's best restaurant.

If you do not want to miss out on first-class culinary variety, you should go to Saarbrücken and get a taste of international cooking.

#3 The highest restaurant in Germany

The restaurant Gipfelalm is located at the top of the Zugspitze mountain. You can eat at exactly 2'952 meters of altitude. Tradition is obvious here, so the Gipfelalm reminds of a typical Bavarian inn from the inside. In terms of food you can get Bavarian Hausmannskost with a modern touch.

In addition, you can enjoy the great view from the Zugspitze during the meal, which is really awesome in itself.
