Good to know

Does the restaurant offer a tasting menu?
Yes. With an advance reservation, they are more than happy to serve a 7-course tasting menu.

What are the house specialties?
Guest favorites include beef dishes on the one hand, and on the other, trout that is simply seasoned with salt, dipped in flour, pan-seared, and then baked to moist perfection in the oven.

When is apricot season?
If you love apricots, you should definitely visit Hotel Richard Löwenherz in July or August. During this time, the kitchen team serves dessert variations that are quite unrivaled, with apricot dumplings being the absolute high.
