Eating well in Kassel? It works in this Kassel restaurant
In which Kassel restaurant can you eat well in Kassel? On our visit the three UNESCO World Heritage Sites in the Kassel area we looked for restaurants. We found what we were looking for here. At an inn and a café that not only offers cakes, but also Kasseler and Hessian Specialties. Our tip: here you can eat well in Kassel. A visit is worthwhile once you are in Kassel:
Eating well in Kassel in the brewery to Rammelsberg
Only a few minutes walk from our hotel, the Schweizer Hof at Wilhelmshöher Allee *, to the Rammelsberg brewery in Kassel. The city of Kassel was almost completely destroyed during the Second World War. There are only a few remains of the once glamorous place. For that reason alone, the Kassel restaurant Brauhaus zum Rammelsberg is worth a visit. It belongs to an ensemble of old half-timbered houses that are grouped around a square and looks very inviting with its half-timbered facade. The motto “Your friendly brewery” is also very promising. This is also true - as we have seen - in service.
Have a nice meal in this Kassel restaurant
We take a seat in the dining room, which is rustically furnished with wooden tables, wooden walls, indirect light and candlesticks and is well attended. The guests feel at home in this Kassel restaurant. We not only filter out Hessian chunks from the babble of voices, but also one or the other English sentence. This shows that the visitors to the brewery are international. Apparently it's not just us who want to eat well in Kassel. The ambience reminds me a little of one of my student bars. I spent whole nights with my college friends discussing them and having a lot of fun. I like the atmosphere and we're excited to see what the food is like.
Caution: there are large portions in this Kassel restaurant
We got hungry during our visit to the trick fountains in Bergpark Wilhelmshöhe and order a plate of antipasti, which we share as a starter. Petar takes a Bierkutscher steak for the main course and I choose a roast pork with red apple cabbage and bread dumplings. The appetizer plate in this Kassel restaurant is a poem. With zucchini and aubergines, olives, mushrooms, salami, vitello tonato, dried tomatoes, bruschetta with diced tomatoes and other delicacies, the antipasti plate alone would have been enough to fill us up after our tour along the water features. Add a glass of cider and you're guaranteed a dinner you won't soon forget.
When I look at the main courses, I know immediately that we won't be able to manage these quantities. Each of us receives two pieces of meat with vegetables and side dishes. If we had known beforehand how big the portions are in this Kassel restaurant, we would have done without the starter. However, then we would have been poorer by one experience. This is how we enjoy this and part of our main course. Finally, full, satisfied and tired, we leave this restaurant, which we gladly recommend to you. Our tip is: order a course first and then see if you are still hungry. The portions in the Brauhaus zum Rammelsberg are huge. You can eat well here in Kassel.
Eating well in Kassel: Café Nenninger
Café Nenninger reminds me a little of the with its nostalgic interior and the cakes on the counter of the pastry shop Viennese coffee houses. The selection of cakes in this Kassel restaurant made my mouth water. There is a Fürstentorte, raspberry cakes, chocolate cakes and an assortment of cakes in the shape of a bear or a heart. Even a Barbie cake is offered. With this selection of cakes you always win my heart.
The only difference was that our conversation at the table was about Kassel and Hessian specialties, which prompted the waitress to offer us a plate of it. "This is how you can try the regional specialties," she says, and presents us with a plate of green sauce and awl sausage. Of course, as a non-Kasseler, we are interested in what you eat in this city. That turns out to be a good decision. I especially liked the green sauce, a kind of herb sauce with boiled egg and warm potato. I'll be sure to look out for that next time I visit Hesse.
We recommend Café Nenninger, which is located in the center of Kassel, as a Kassel restaurant for a lunch or coffee break. The service was friendly and eager to meet our needs. The food was good. Perhaps one of you has already tried the cakes in Café Nenninger? Then feel free to let us know in the comments how you liked them.
