Adenau Restaurants

  • Dine in one of the oldest houses in town

    This restaurant is located in one of the oldest buildings of the old town centre in Adenau. Modern renovated inside with three buildings combined it offers magnificent regional dishes with good service. I enjoyed the Rump Steak with Mustard Sauce.

    more
  • Overpriced Tradition

    Most expensive with a design that one would normally find in Bavaria. However in my eyes the hospitality and gastronomy that one tries to do here is substandard to the good traditional restaurants in the region.

  • Creative Country Dishes

    Situated in the heart of the historical Buttermarkt this is a local restaurant with a touch of the South. During October - Try the Wild Autumn Bird!

    Okay I am honest since I am writing this tip with a massive hangover... Gluehwein is hot red wine cooked with a special mixture. It does not taste like witches brew but it has the same effect. Offered during Christmas season almost all over Germany. Three cups knock you out of your feet. You can also try it with a "Schwung" a little kick as an...

Adenau Warnings and Dangers

  • MikeAtSea's Profile Photo

    by MikeAtSea Written Feb 6, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Eifel Region consists of plenty forested landscapes that are home to deer and wild boar as well as other game. Driving during the night may end suddenly when game jumps out into the road and every year hundreds of accidents, sometimes even fatal occur here. Hence take the foot of the gas and drive carefully – once you have hit a full grown deer your journey may have come to an end!

    Deer Warning!!
