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 Skipper and 1st Officer

The wheel of the Columbus is safe in the hands of our restaurant manager Lars Schipp and his deputy Alex von Lanken. Lars has been with us since 2018 and is an experienced thoroughbred restaurateur. His overriding priority is the wellbeing of our Columbus guests. In private on the other hand, he’s more for the uncomfortable: cold water bathing. He likes to spend his time off at the beach with family and dog. Otherwise his passion is good food and fine wine. Lars is always on the lookout for interesting varieties, new creations and spontaneous inspiration. 

His 1st Officer Alex has been an important part of our crew since we opened and is an old salt in the Flensburg restaurant scene. He wears his culinary heart on his sleeve and intuitively knows what every guest would like – he can read it in their eyes. His favourite form of leisure is relaxing with his wife and son in their garden, but he also quite keen on sport – which explains why most days Alex comes to work on his bike.

Together, our twin peaks of restaurant management bring in not just masses of experience but also a shipload of passion and fun!
