"This hotel is among the best in Germany", writes the Feinschmecker gourmet magazine.

What can gourmets look forward to at Landhotel Voshövel? Excellent food, choice wines and lots of surprises. For years now our young team of chefs has been impressing guests with their craftsmanship, culinary expertise and daring. And craftsmanship of course means doing things by hand.

Fine dining at our restaurant in Schermbeck

Our cuisine represents freshness, regional products and creativity – and has won a number of awards. "This hotel is among the best in Germany", writes the Feinschmecker gourmet magazine. And the latest Guide Michelin adds: "Tasty, seasonal and made from good products. The menu stimulates the appetite with its 'roast lamb noisettes and sweetbreads' or 'dry-aged rumpsteak with a crust of herbs'."

However, why not take a look at our kitchens for yourself. You can meet our chef de cuisine at a cookery course or at the Voshövel event "Jazz in the kitchen". By the way, an excellent meal also makes an excellent gift – as a voucher , too.

Something sweet to end with: food pairing

Is cooking a science? Many people regard it as such and draw entire diagrams about ingredients which complement each other. What is especially surprising is that chocolate provides the basis for unusual combinations. At an artisan chocolate producer's in Brügge we checked it out for ourselves, and can confirm that such creations are tasty and exciting. More information coming soon at your gourmet hotel at the Voshövel.

Among other treats our daily buffet, weekdays from 07:00-10:00 and Sundays from 07:00-11:30, offers:

• lovingly prepared egg dishes from our show kitchen
• a slicing machine for wafer-thin slices of top-quality ham
• a large muesli and cornflakes station
• a station for freshly squeezed orange juice and other juices
• a juicer for pure carrot juice
• different types of bread, including the home-made Voshövel rye bread
• a large selection of cheese and cold meats
• fruit for every taste

The beer garden is located to the rear of the Landhotel, overlooking the gardens. This is an ideal place for those who love nature and art – surrounded by cherry trees, fountains and sculptures created by the major Ringenberg artist Heinrich Kemmers. For many it is probably Germany's most attractive partly-roofed beer garden.

This is not just because of the sliding glass facade, which enables guests to enjoy the view whatever the weather. It is also where we hold our BBQ buffet every Sunday in summer.

The story of Hugo and Rosalie

Some things in life simply can't be planned, and that was the case with Rosalie. While we were together in the beer garden with friends one evening, we decided that it would be nice to have a new summer drink. And suddenly we realised that the ideal combination would be Ramazzotti Rosato with sparkling wine and basil! This irresistible pink mixture is now firmly established on our beer garden's list of drinks, just like Hugo, its male counterpart: Fresco Spumante brut, mixed with rhubarb juice, limoncello, forest strawberries, blueberries and black elderberry liqueur. Surprisingly different – like so much else in our beer garden on the Lower Rhine.

How can you explain what 'ambience' is? It's difficult to put into words, because it's something you feel! We sense it if we feel good in a particular room. The ambience and the atmosphere are right, they suit our perceptions and situation. Applied skilfully, this knowledge facilitates making the right choice.
