Schlosshotel Münchhausen

Restaurant Schlosshotel Münchhausen

In the Weserbergland Schaumburg-Hameln nature park lies a beautiful 16th-century castle. This German castle houses three restaurants, among which their renowned gourmet restaurant. This Renaissance-style restaurant opened in 2004, and the kitchen has been in the hands of one-Michelin-starred chef Achim Schwekendiek since. Here, chef Achim creatively prepares his “haute cuisine à la française”: classic French high-end cuisine with a Mediterranean twist.
