Our restaurant Columbus and the other catering areas are full of history. You will find various elements that date back to the origins of the hotel. For example, there are antique golden mirrors between the large arched windows towards the fjord.
The furnishing is composed of comfortable upholstered leather benches and different types of chairs, and the combination with other elements and a variety of design details featuring natural materials create a wonderful atmosphere for you to enjoy. For our little guests we have a special kids menu with tasty dishes
The restaurant is closed on the 25th and 26th of December from 12 pm to 5 pm.
In Columbus we rely on uncomplicated, genuine cuisine. High-quality ingredients from the region, full flavour, and loving preparation add the special touch to our dishes.
The combination of small delicacies and the ever changing variety of main courses invite you to explore new compositions and variations in taste.
Without Christopher Columbus and his expeditions our dishes would probably be simpler or even sparse today. It was him who brought a variety of unknown food from the New World to Europe – for example different sorts of fruit, beans, tomatoes and potatoes.
Not least important: Also the cacao bean – essential ingredient in chocolate – made its way to Europe on his ships.
In our small half-timber house we have a bar lounge on two floors furnished in English style. Away from everyday business you can take a rest and have a peaceful drink.
When you are in the right mood you can bury yourself in a book from our library, play chess or backgammon, or just enjoy the view of the Flensburg Fjord.
Sit down together in a sociable group and enjoy the sweet side of life. We offer groups of ten and more the chance to book a Coffee Time. Our kitchen crew will bake a cake fresh for you and your guests. All washed down with a hot drink of your choice, from cappuccino to roiboos tea.
Let us know your wishes when you book, and we will ensure your coffee get-together in our maritime atmosphere is a complete success. In summer you are of course welcome to enjoy your coffee and cake al fresco in our courtyard garden.
In our hotel we attach great importance to regional sourcing and quality - and not only where our dishes are concerned. Our cutlery is also locally sourced, from the Flensburg cutlers Robbe & Berking. It is renowned for its impressive and timeless style, warm colours and finely finished surfaces.
Thanks to its insensitivity to acids, the lustrous cutlery is designed for long-term use and thus corresponds to our sustainability philosophy. The high quality is also reflected in its ergonomic design: knives, forks and spoons sit comfortably in the hand - this is how genuine quality has felt for five generations.
One of the highlights in our restaurant is the former carriage passage: in times gone by the horse-drawn carriages stopped right here, and the guests got off to get into the restaurant.
Today's transport differs but the atmosphere is still right to take time and slow down: a bit separated from the rest of the restaurant there are two large tables or single tables under inviting chandeliers.
Particularly suitable for smaller groups who come together to enjoy a meal and the wonderful view through the large windows.
