Get to know our crew Kirsten Herrmann

Our managing director Kirsten Herrmann is not just always on the go here on board, she’s also good on her feet in her spare time, jogging through the surrounding area and making the most of the fresh air. When she’s not jogging she likes to spend time with her family and friends, and is never averse to a good read.

Get to know our crew Nancy Klindtworth

On board right from the very start: As vice director and reception manager, Nancy knows Hotel Hafen Flensburg inside out. After having worked in Kiel, London, Düsseldorf, and Hamburg she went to the far north for love's sake - and directly signed on with us. In her spare time she likes to travel, and she is particularly inspired by catering and gastronomy events and always brings fresh ideas with her.

Always a bright smile: that's Nancy.

Get to know our crew Kirsten and Bodo

As the Director of Culinary Services, Bodo Lööck was there to guide Kirsten Herrmann's first career steps 30 years ago. Now, she has risen to become the Hotel Director of Hotel Hafen Flensburg and has appointed him as the head chef for the hotel's own restaurant, Columbus, to cap off his life's work. The reunited team has given the Columbus restaurant a fresh Nordic breeze.

GET TO KNOW OUR CREW Enya Matthiesen

As the backbone of our event department, Enya Matthiesen has evolved from an apprentice to the central point of contact for everything related to events in our establishment. She's also studying hotel management on the side to deepen her expertise. Enya is the person you turn to, whether it's for conferences, corporate events, or private culinary highlights. Her dedication and knowledge are indispensable for the success of our events.

In her free time, Enya loves to dive into the Flensburg gastronomy scene and enjoys the freedom of horseback riding. These outlets allow her to approach her projects with fresh energy and new ideas.
