Ratskeller of the City of Leipzig
DE – Leipzig
The Ratskeller in Leipzig is without a doubt one of the most traditional restaurants of the trade fair city. The restaurant is located in the new city hall with all tourist attractions within walking distance. The 110th anniversary was celebrated in 2014. The owners and managing partners of Ratskeller are Ingo Winkler and Jan Woithan.
The extraordinarily and rustic cellar ambience offers 7 rooms with a total of 700 seats for guests. The restaurant's kitchen presents culinary delicacies made from recipes of the plain Saxon kitchen – no matter if you dine as a couple, if you hold private family celebrations or big events – the dishes will spoil you. No matter which room you are in – 'Großer Keller, Weinrestaurant, Alte Wache, Gewandhaussaal or Ratskeller Club' – they all have their own charisma.
The restaurant was damaged after a fire on December 24, 2013. After the first shock it was clear that the work process had to be rethought and new kitchen technology was needed. The chef of the kitchen Mathias Rescher and his team had a clear vision and they knew it was the chance to develop something new. Hereby it was important to meet the demands of the à la carte business as well as the daily events and caterings for up to 5000 persons. When investing such a big amount of money, it is important to think ahead of time. It quickly became clear that the modular system construction of the PALUX product series Topline was the right choice. The wishes and visions of the kitchen crew have been realized with PALUX and its experienced partner in Leipzig. 'Everybody did a great job' says Mathias Rescher. The new kitchen was put in operation in October 2014.
Today the Ratskeller is one of the most attractive restaurants in Leipzig.
