Themed hotels "El Andaluz" and "Castillo Alcazar"
DE – Rust

The Europa-Park, voted as the best amusement park worldwide, opened its doors on March 28th to start into the anniversary year 2015. The Euromaus and its friends will celebrate with their guests on a daily basis up until November 8th 2015. Before the season started, a substantial investment took place in order to offer the many guests a lot of surprises and highlights based on the anniversary. One of the investments was the new kitchen technology of the themed hotels "El Andaluz" and "Castillo Alcazar". The contract was given to PALUX after thoroughly probing.

The core element is the centrally located kitchen that provides food and meals to the themed restaurants "Don Quichotte" and to the buffet restaurant "Castillo". The scope of delivery involved the whole kitchen technology including the dish washing area, ventilation technology, the cold storage and deep-freezing cells as well as the two buffet systems for both restaurants. The newly built "Kühlwelt" in the Restaurant "Don Quichotte" offers a wide selection of wine, cheese and meat.

The kitchens of the "El Andaluz" and the "Castillo Alcazar" have been in operation for only a few weeks. It already shows that the concept developed by PALUX has been successful.

Both hotel managers Frank Müller and Matthias Bansen as well as the executive chef Thomas Röttele are thrilled. "PALUX is the right partner for us because they provided us the whole kitchen concept".

PALUX showed a lot of competence and professionalism throughout the whole planning and installation phase that lasted only 11 weeks. Especially the project coordination on-site was excellent. The challenges of the reconstruction were managed perfectly under a lot of time pressure and in collaboration with the involved architects, construction managers and craftsmen.

"PALUX assumed responsibility for the whole project and offered their know-how in project management at any time" says the construction department of the Europa-Park. "Even after the planning phase was concluded, our wishes and requests were handled in a cooperative and flexible manner. The comprehensive project management and support have been the reasons why PALUX is the right partner for the realisation of this project".

The innovative kitchen technology allows a rational, employee-friendly and productive work. Therefore the new kitchen plays an important role in the economic success of the themed hotels of the Europa-Park.
