    Deutsches Haus

    by german_eagle Written Dec 5, 2014

    On a recent trip to Freiberg I had lunch here. It is known as a more upscale restaurant, but Mon - Fri they have special lunch offers from 11 to 14 h for little money. It's always one weekly dish, two daily dishes, each of the three for 5 Euro, and two more fancier ones for a couple of Euros more.

    Ambience is nice, somewhat rustic, service was professional, quick and friendly. I chose the daily meat dish (5 Euro), sliced pork with mushrooms and spätzle (sort of German pasta) in a creamy sauce - excellent, I never expected it *that* good. And it was filling. I also had a 0.2 l glass of Pinot Gris (4.90 Euro), very good also.

    Non-smoking!

    Cafe Andelt

    by german_eagle Updated Jun 27, 2014

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This cafe and bakery is perfectly located at Untermarkt square right vis-a-vis the Gothic choir of the cathedral - beautiful view through the windows (pic 4) or, if the weather cooperates, from the seats outside.

    The cafe/bakery is family run, exists since 1958, but the townhouse is much older. I was a bit disappointed by the interior, it's quite modern and not exaclty cosy and charming, I had expected a more historic ambience. Service was VERY friendly, quick and competent.

    Favorite Dish: I had a very tasty glass of tea (Assam by Eilles, 1.50 Euro), a piece of raspberry-cream fancy cake (yummy, 2.30 Euro) and a piece of their specialty, Freiberger Eierschecke (1.20 Euro). The latter is Freiberg's version of the Saxon specialty Eierschecke - and this one is totally different from the one in Dresden. In Freiberg it is made of a yeast dough and on top a still semiliquid egg yolk - pudding mix on top (with vanilla, sugar and maybe something else.) Frankly, it is different and pretty good, but I prefer the Dresden version - it's fluffy!

    Hotel Kreller: One of the best in Freiberg

    by german_eagle Updated Jun 22, 2014

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    When the family decided to go to Freiberg for the New Year's celebrations we wanted a nice restaurant for the special dinner after the theatre. Hotel Kreller's restaurant was the perfect pick.

    We had reservations in their dining room, not too formal but festive. In the adjoining hall was a big party going on which we had the option to join or not - we didn't. They prepared a special four-course dinner that evening, I do not exactly remember what it was. I just can say the appetizer was something with scallops, first course fish, main course wild rice with veal steak or so, dessert was ice-cream with ananas. Absolutely delicious. I do not exactly recall what we paid but I'd think it wasn't that much. Definitely not more than 50 Euro per person incl. wine and water. Highly recommended!

    Update: Went back in March 2014 for lunch. Mon - Fri they have a special lunch offer: salad buffet with some cold and hot dishes for 5.90 Euro. Yummy! The selection of salad also had tomatoes, pepper, carrots, olives, pickled stuff ... and there were mushrooms, chicken strips, meatballs. And bread and butter. I also order a glass of mineral water and 0.2 of very good white wine. A steal!

    Ratskeller

    by german_eagle Updated Nov 29, 2013

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    When I was in Freiberg on business in summer I had lunch at this restaurant. I found a table outside where I had a good view of what went on on the Obermarkt square. Unfortunately it did not take long (exactly: until my beer came) before the wasps discovered their new victim. This made me change to the inside.

    The interior is nice, with wooden panelled walls and some paintings. Staff was friendly and attentive.

    Favorite Dish: I had a pie filled with salmon, which came with a mixed salad and bread. Quality was okay. Wine was excellent :-)

    Restaurant Cafe Bar Quake

    by german_eagle Updated Nov 29, 2013

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This restaurant is located in the former Gasthaus "Zum Goldnen Adler", a large Renaissance townhouse, which was built in early 16th century. Thus the visit is worthwile for the architecture alone. Nowadays the rooms to the street front are shops (with frescos from 1545 and beautiful wooden ceilings!) while the restaurant/cafe/bar Quake is in the back of the townhouse, access from the patio. The decor is tastefully modern, quite stylish. My favourite place is the quiet enclosed courtyard in the back with woods providing shade.

    Service is very good, friendly, quick, professional.

    Favorite Dish: I had a green salad with roasted bacon, onions and chanterelles. Yummy. I chose a glass of light white wine from Spain (Verdejo, very good) and a glass of mineral water. The cheque was 13 Euro incl. tip.

    Update from Dec 2013: Been back for their lunch offer. The pork roast was ok, a bit too dry IMO, the Bohemian dumplings were sort of tasteless, just for soaking up the sauce (which was very good) and filling your stomach. Sauerkraut was yummy. All in all barely ok for 5 Euro. The dark Freiberger beer was very good. (Pics 4+5)

    Café Hartmann: Coffeehouse in Freiberg

    by german_eagle Updated Nov 29, 2013

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I was totally surprised when I entered this café. The interior is originally preserved from the 1920s. Very charming. The Hartmann family owns and runs this café in the 4th generation.

    The place is perfect for people watching. It seems "tout Freiberg" meets there. Staff is very friendly and competent. The cakes etc. are fantastic.

    I have been back a couple of times in the meantime; love this place. It's just not to beat. In summer you can have a table outside.

    Favorite Dish: We had a piece of "English cake" and another local cake. Perfect.

    Cappuccino was very good. I had a local specialty called "Araber": It is made of finest Arabian coffee, comes in a tiny cup (like espresso) with a date. You drink it with a good amount of sugar - fabulous!

    In the meantime I had their special cake, the Freiberger Eierschecke that's a tad different from the Dresdner Eierscheck but as good, more Araber coffee :-) and also freshly squeezed orange juice - everything was yummy and reasonably priced.

    Update from 2013: The coffee "Araber" is still yummy. I had a piece of walnut mini-cake, delicious! No Freiberg visit without a stop at Hartmann's ...

    Inside the caf�� Cafe Hartmann Yummy! more delicious stuff ...

    Kaffee Delikat

    by german_eagle Updated Jun 7, 2013

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This place is a recent discovery. It's more a shop than a cafe/restaurant - they are specialists for coffee from all over the world. They do coffee tastings from time to time (see website or email them), They also sell stuff related to coffee - machines, filters, pots, etc. but also finest chocolate, cookies ...

    The interior of the shop alone is worth seeing. It's in a 16th century townhouse with a beautiful, painted wooden ceiling. They have tables inside, but if the weather co-operates you better sit outside and do some people watching - it's one of the busiest pedestrian streets in Freiberg.

    Open Mon - Fri 10 - 18 h, Sat 10 - 16 h

    Favorite Dish: I opted for outside seating, it was not too warm, but sunny. I had a piece of DELICIOUS chocolate cake with whipped cream (didn't ask for the latter) and a yummy milk coffee (the coffee is their house specialty, rather mild), which came with a glass of sparkling mineral water. The cake was 2.30 Euro and the milk coffee was 2.50 Euro. No charge for the glass of water. A steal!

    Restaurant Stadtwirtschaft: Czech food in Freiberg

    by german_eagle Written Sep 17, 2011

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Yes, right in the middle of Freiberg, in Germany there is a place where you can have Czech food, beer and wine. They actually claim to have the most sorts of Czech tap beer in Germany. Anyway, the menu list has a large selection of all sorts of Czech dishes, indeed several beers and also a surprisingly large selection of Bohemian and Moravian wine.

    They have a nice courtyard where you can sit in the shade on hot days. Service was pretty good, competent and quite quick.

    I had a typical Czech dish, roast beef with creamy sauce and dumplings - good (and better than I had it in one restaurant in Prague) but nothing to write home about. Pretty good was the Budvar beer. Prices are reasonable, about 18 Euro per person.

    Café Hartmann: Original 1920s Ambience

    by Kathrin_E Written Jan 5, 2011

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This charming café was established in the 1920s and it has preserved its original interior and furniture. Enjoy your coffee and cake in the flair of the Golden Twenties.

    Even the phone is an original piece!

    Flair alone is not enough, though. So let me mention their coffee specialities, their excellent cakes, and warm sweet dishes. There is also a choice of 'real' lunch dishes on the menu.

    Favorite Dish: Their spicy Arab coffee deserves a mentioning in this field.
    I enjoyed the big serving of Buchteln and custard on a snowy winter's day when I was very hungry.
    Otherwise - pick any cake at the counter, you can hardly go wrong.

    Restaurant Schwanenschloesschen

    by german_eagle Written Jul 11, 2010

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The restaurant was built on the pond outside the city walls in 1896. Unfortunately it had to be torn down due to its bad condition in 1973. Soon after the wall came down plans were made to rebuilt it in original style - and in 2000 the restaurant was reopened.

    The location is wonderful, right *in* the pond (almost a small lake) surrounded by a nice park. It was rebuilt exactly as it looked back in 1896, very picturesque, even the details like the lamps were reconstructed.

    The service was quick and friendly, the atmosphere like in a big family or a local neighbourhood hangout place. I enjoyed sitting on the terrace in the shade and gazing at the pond.

    If you want you can rent a rowing boat (or that swan, see pic #5!), especially popular with kids. Price is 3 Euro for a half hour, 5 hour for an hour for the boats (the swan costs 2/3 Euro more).

    Favorite Dish: I had a piece of strawberry cake, cappuccino and a dark Freiberger beer, a local specialty. Everything was delicious. The bill came to 6 Euro incl. tip. A steal!
