Sweet Delicacies in Wiesbaden ©HHoG/ TakanoThe restaurant “Die Ente” (The Duck) is located in the 5-star hotel “Nassauer Hof” in Wiesbaden. In 1979, the restaurant was awarded with a coveted Michelin star which it has retained ever since. The restaurant’s young head chef, Michael Kammermeier, presents his very own interpretation of exquisite, straightforward classic European cuisine with a very personal touch.

Gourmets, enjoying top quality, organic, hand selected ingredients and who are willing to try unusual food compositions have to visit the restaurant “August” of Top Chef Christian Grünwald in Augsburg. Guide Michelin as well as Gault Millau mentioned the two-star restaurant benevolently.
