Restaurant Haerlin

Cuisine Exquisite

Awarded with two Michelin-stars, 5 toques in the Guide Gault Millau and 4 1/2 F's ("Der Feinschmecker") as well as the 4th place in the Falstaff Restaurant & Guesthouse Guide, gourmet restaurant Haerlin culinarily led by Executive Chef Christoph Rüffer is well-known far beyond Hamburg. Christoph Rüffer and his team prepare amazing dishes with creatively composed flavours and surprising textures within the seasonal aligned menus. Here, the focus is set on supreme quality and the origin of the products.



Creativity and international impacts are as well found in the interior: chinese silk wallpapers and golden embossments complement brilliant shades of Crème and Green. Genuine highlights for wine lovers are the customized wine cabinet, made of glass and polished brass, with noble wines and true rarities as well as the Sommelier's Table. Since 1919, the four seasons are represented by four Nymphenburg porcelain figures.
