Hot chocolate in the Burg Café Bad Belzig
“You should definitely try the hot chocolate in the Burg Café Bad Belzig in Eisenhardt Castle! ”I didn't have anyone tell me this twice after our hike in the Hoher Fläming Nature Park. Hot chocolate always sounds good, especially when it is made from real chocolate. In any case, this is what the host praises. After a look at the cake counter, chocolate does not only play a role in this tiny café in drinkable form.
The Burg Café Bad Belzig
First of all, we have a hard time finding the café. Our navigation device points us to Wittenberger Str. 14 in Bad Belzig. There stands the imposing Eisenhardt Castle, which is still surrounded by a moat today. In the gate a door leads to the museum entrance. There you can also pay the entrance, if you want to climb the castle tower. We are after ours Hike through the castle park of Wiesenburg Castle and on the Art trail through the Fläming however tired. Therefore we give ourselves the ascent. Instead, we are looking for a good cup of hot chocolate, which was announced as particularly delicious. Of course we do not want to miss that.
Upon entering the courtyard, we immediately notice the set tables on the square in front of the castle hotel. However, we do not see guests there. Rather, a young man is busy cleaning the tables. When asked where the Burg Café is, he points to an inconspicuous house on the other side of the courtyard. Before that, some people sit at a few tables. All are occupied. Therefore, we try our luck in the interior of the café despite the sunshine, the middle of September still warms the courtyard.
Plush, cozy atmosphere in the Burg Café Bad Belzig
Tiny are the two rooms that the Burg Café offers its guests. We have the choice inside. We can either sit on a plush sofa or have a room for us. There is a table with many chairs. However, I wonder if these are ever occupied. Because it's tight in here. It would be difficult to fill all the seats. Anyone who has taken a seat must wait until the room empties when he wants to go out again. But since nobody wants to get in here except us, we take a seat on the two chairs at the entrance.
Just as in the other room, it exudes an atmosphere of bygone times. A thick blanket lies on the table, waiting for the artistically carved chairs to score. The lamps on the walls are reminiscent of Art Nouveau times. The candlestick, which stands in the middle of the table, fits in with this.
Nostalgia in the Burg Café
The innkeeper looks in briefly: "Have you already ordered?" We deny and order two cups of hot chocolate. We have to choose cakes at the cake counter. Here, too, it quickly becomes clear that chocolate is not only served in a drinkable form in this café. I order a piece of chocolate cake that looks particularly tempting.
It only takes a few minutes, and the landlady brings us two thick-walled cups, which alone are worth a visit to a café. A porcelain elephant stares at me as I turn the handle on me. Otherwise, I only know such cups from the flea market or from old antique shops, where everything from past times is offered. I think she is wonderfully quirky.
Immediately afterwards, the landlord comes back a second time and puts a huge piece of chocolate cake in front of me that makes me swallow. I'm glad we only ordered one of them. So Petar can help me to consume this calorie bomb.
The finest hot chocolate at Burg Café Bad Belzig
And then comes the moment of truth. The first sip of hot chocolate from the elephant cup! What a poem! Now, it does not surprise me anymore why everyone is raving about this café. Melted chocolate trickles down my throat and warms my palate. It leaves a feeling of happiness, as one always says chocolate. So far, however, I have never felt this as intense as at this moment. Pleasant well-being spreads in me, and I could sit here for hours just to sip that divine chocolate. The fact that real chocolate is used, you can taste it in every sip. This is not the usual cocoa milk trickles through my mouth. Instead, a thick chocolate crema flatters my tongue and gently and slowly flows down to the stomach, which it warms pleasantly. It almost feels like she wants to make me aware every inch of the way through that comforting feeling.
Hot chocolate recipe - make it yourself with real chocolate
Since we rarely get in Brandenburg the Burg Café in Bad Belzig has given us a taste, we always make hot chocolate ourselves. With real chocolate, because that's the only way it tastes so seductive. At Good kitchen we discovered a simple recipe for it:
- 250 ml of milk
- a pinch of cinnamon
- half a teaspoon of brown sugar
- 50 grams of dark chocolate
Break the chocolate into pieces.
Heat three tablespoons of milk, brown sugar, chocolate chips and cinnamon in a saucepan until the chocolate melts.
Stir until the chocolate has melted completely. Then add the rest of the milk and slowly heat it up. Then pour the chocolate into a large cup or tall glass and sprinkle it with a little cocoa. If you like it very seductive, add some cream to the hot chocolate beforehand.
Conclusion: a must for chocolate lovers
The Burg Café Bad Belzig is a must for all chocolate lovers! If you are in the area, do not miss this treat. The cafe may be tiny and cranky, but the taste of this chocolate is unique and worth a visit.

Sounds very tempting. Especially now that it's already cold outside, I can't think of anything better than drinking a real hot chocolate (where else can you get that) from an elephant cup (which is probably unique) in a Burgcafe.
Thanks for the tip
Gladly, dear Daniela. The elephant cup was the icing on the cake: D
Moin your two,
real? Can you go there? In Brandenburg? Did not you take the chocolate with you? Well, next time I'm back in Berlin, I'll have to make a detour to Belzig. The only time I was in Belzig was during a bike tour from Dessau via Wittenberg and Brandenburg to Spandau. Then I cycled down the Fleming, through Belzig, and on. There was no time for a stop.
Well then, let me get inspired.
The cafe is quirky nice, but the chocolate is absolutely delicious, Götz. Something special!
Oooh, my mouth is watering - the cake looks delicious and the ambience seems to be perfect.
Tiny and quaint I would call the cafe, Michaela. And for chocolate fans a must! : D
Oh how delicious! That looks fantastic. The cake and the chocolate and then in this rustic atmosphere, I have to go there!
From the café itself you should not promise too much, Nicole. But the hot chocolate is really unique: D
Such a hot chocolate would not be so wrong now! And then in this great atmosphere! :)
Yeah, I would not mind, Janet: D If it's cold outside, it sure tastes best.
Now that the snow is lying, a hot chocolate is always the right one. Great :)
The cold season is perfect for that. You're right.
That sounds so seductive, that I would like to try this hot chocolate right away. Something similar I once experienced in Barcelona and not forgotten until today. A great tip, thank you.
Hello Victoria, yes, this hot chocolate was really something special: D. She has tasted much more intense than what you usually get pretended. She was really delicious! LG, Monica
A dream :)
... especially for the palate, dear Anke: D
that's nasty ;-) I'm always on sugar in November, so at least on things where I know exactly that industrial sugar is in it, but I love chocolate and everything related to it and the article now wakes but the desire for something sweet ,
Nice photos, thanks for that.
Give up sugar for a whole month? That would be very difficult for me :), but I try not to overdo it. I once told a nutrition specialist that it was all about versatile food. And I try to keep it as good as possible throughout the year. I treat myself to a cup of chocolate once or twice a year, when it comes up.
If I'm really a chocolate lover, I do not think so.
The area but I find really magical and you magical, as always the appropriate pleasure travel tips.
Thank you, dear Katja. I think you would like the area.
Very beautiful pictures! The cake tastes good. Even the cup looks like a work of art.
Oh yes, just a little big was the cake piece: D. The cup I found just great!
