We are continually developing our offer and, thanks to cooperations, are able to provide appealing, new culinary highlights.
Seasonal, regional and plant-based
We are opening the new Green Kitchen Lab on the Irchel campus on December 4. The colourful restaurant with its cosy atmosphere invites you to linger and enjoy.
The culinary offering focuses on a plant-based diet, where food is predominantly plant-based, seasonal, regional and as natural and unprocessed as possible. This means that animal products play a minor role and mainly products that can be produced in a kitchen are used.
The menus are changed weekly on Wednesday and guests have the option of choosing from various add-ons. In addition, various "sandwiches" and vegan sweets from the in-house patisserie are offered, accompanied by a unique tea concept.
Booking via the website offers guests a convenient way to secure a table.
The new concept not only promises to spoil the taste buds, but also an inviting ambience for a relaxed culinary experience.
As the result of a cooperation agreement with ViCAFE, since October 2023 we are offering a special coffee experience to our guests. The first staffed espresso bar is located at the ViCAFE Irchel on the Irchel campus (former Café Complet) and the second at the ViCAFE Zentrum at the Rondell Café in the Lichthof of the main building from April 2023.
