We're open again!

Of course, under strict conditions and restrictions! A table must be reserved in advance, in person, by telephone or by e-mail. All company regulations and measures must be accepted! An assigned table / seat may no longer be changed! NO negative test is required on the terrace!

A negative test is mandatory indoors! This does not apply to people with full vaccination protection (vaccination certificate or mobile phone app must be presented), or people who have recovered with official proof!

For hotel guests it still applies that a negative corona test must be presented on arrival (not older than 48 hours)! If you stay for several days, you have to do a new test every 72 hours in the pharmacy or in a test station! Vaccinated persons with complete vaccination protection and those who have recovered are exempt from this (vaccination pass or certificate for recovered persons must be presented).

Changed opening times:
Daily from 11.30 a.m. - max. 10 p.m. (kitchen from 12 p.m. to 9 p.m., last food orders by 8:45 p.m.)! The last drinks orders are accepted until 9:30 p.m.

Admission to the company is only possible upon request. You will be assigned a table!

Our "out-of-home service" will continue!
However, only on request! I.e. please telephone to inquire whether the order can be prepared by us, as the reopening could possibly overload the kitchen!

Please all get through this difficult time safely, stay healthy and do not lose heart!

My father always said: "Keep your head up, straighten your hat, keep going!"

In this sense, all the best! We'll see you again, I promise!

best regards

Sönke and Silvia Ellerbrock as well as the whole team from the "Schifferhaus"
