Regional deer specialties


– Whether inside or outside, rustic or elegant, noon or evening, a quick sandwich in the meantime or a gourmet menu – In our restaurants you can eat the best. Grilled meat like grand mother always made it, homemade leavened bread, a lovely potato dumpling meal or smoaked trout – everything’s hearty, thuringian, regional and artfully! We offer a variety of many interesting meals for friends of the creative international cuisine – get inspired!

We cook a regional and seasonal thuringian cuisine with a lot of passion and creativity. By the selection of our products from our region is the sustainability and the freshness very important for us. Mushrooms, herbs, goat cheese and the lamb meat are coming from species appropriate keeping from the region. The fine wine comes from regional and international cultivation, the liqueur from the fawner heights.

We offer in our restaurant different and changing theme nights on multiple evenings in the week.

Enjoy a good forest-breakfast, later maybe a light herbal salad and for dinner a regional or international cuisine, fresh from the buffet of our open show-kitchen. Or maybe you like it more elegant á la Carte. Wheter a guest from the hotel or a hiker, a family celebration, anniversary, wedding, candle-light dinner or a gourmet; we offer you a noble herbal kitchen in the rythm of the seasons in a nice atmosphere with hospitality.

A “piece of Gabelbach” to go

A lot of our products we’re doing ourselves, because just like that cooking is fun and brings you happiness on the plate. You can enjoy the experience you made here also at home, with our breakfast jam or our house made goat cheese you can suprise your friends or family with this special und unique present.
