Why we stand out from the crowd

Our freshly-baked bread


We only serve our own freshly-baked bread at our events. We use our own recipes, for example onion bread made from sourdough, coarse wholegrain bread with wholemeal grain, French baguette and spice bread bursting with flavour.

Innovative dessert concepts


Homemade ice cream served on marble slabs chilled using dry ice, allows our guests to see for themselves how elaborate ice cream creations are put together. For example, we mix chocolate ice cream with marshmallows, praline ice cream with cheesecake, or fruit sorbet with biscuits or wine gums. This gives each guest the chance to combine their own ice cream favourites.

High-quality equipment


Our products also blaze new trails when it comes to food presentation. Apart from the normal buffet concepts, we keep our finger on the pulse with visually-attractive, high-quality equipment.

Made-to-order drinks


Alongside the diverse range of dishes, our outstanding drinks ideas are designed to surprise. Working with our team of expert sommeliers, we offer a selection of exquisite wines to perfectly complement your food selection. Whether homemade lemonade, DIY infused spirits or made-to-order cocktails, our professional bar staff will be happy to create drinks for your specific event, all with the right look, flavour and name. Quality is the number one priority here, and that’s why Thomas Altenberger was named “Barkeeper of the Year” by Gault Millau in 2008, and as “Host of the Year” some time later. By running with modern trends such as liquid kitchen or cuisine style, our bar manager has been adding value to our experienced, first-rate team since August 2015.
