Germany Weekend

Bailliage of Niedersachsen, Germany
Bad Harzburg, November 25-27, 2022

Advent gourmet weekend with the Bartels family
" our Bailli not only acknowledged the excellent food, but also the outstanding performance of the service brigade "

After two years of pandemic, we were very happy to finally be able to visit the Romantik Hotel Braunschweiger Hof, our new Chaîne member establishment.

The hotel is charmingly situated in the heart of Bad Harzburg in the Harz National Park. Here you will find warm-heartedness in the stylish holiday atmosphere. Leave the daily routine behind; surrounded by true, hearty hospitality and tradition, that’s what the family Bartels stands for since 1894 - now in its fifth generation.

On Friday, November 25th we met for the welcome evening of our Advent weekend to enjoy a pre-Christmas three-course menu featuring oven-fresh goose breast.

Freshly rested and bolstered by an excellent breakfast, the following day we toured the spa town with a professional guide. It included a cable car ride up the local mountain. Back in the town we fortified ourselves with a hearty pea soup. We explored the small but atmospheric Christmas market. There was enough time to relax in the hotel’s pool and wellness area before meeting up again.

The festive end of year celebration in Christmassy decorated rooms began with a reception buffet and glasses of Crémant. Bailli Dr Andreas Wiedemann reviewed the events of the past year. We sang Christmas carols before dinner began. All the courses in Maître Rôtisseur Helmut Söffge’s menu were wonderfully coordinated. The carefully chosen wines accompanied the menu and the evening in complete harmony.

In his congratulatory speech, our Bailli not only acknowledged the excellent food, but also the outstanding performance of the service brigade. Certificates and commemorative plaques were presented.

Concluding the wonderful evening in the hotel’s bar we thoroughly enjoyed the wonderful atmosphere of the Romantik Hotel Braunschweiger Hof.

We very much wished that this Advent weekend would not end. Sadly, we had to return home on the Sunday.
