In the North-West of Germany, on the Rhine river, lies the idyllic city of Herdecke. It started to flourish in the 18th century and nowadays attracts numerous visitors with its beautiful historic centre. The city is famous for its many half-timbered houses that still stand on many corners of Herdecke. These historical buildings boast a traditional architectural style and have been continuously renovated and preserved by their owners. They add to the idyllic and magical atmosphere of the city and make its visitors feel like they have travelled back in time.
However, in Herdecke one can not only stroll through the old town reveling in its architecture but also explore the beautiful countryside around it on countless cycle and hiking routes. One of the sights outside the city is, for example, the great Herdecker Viadukt that impresses visitors with its scale.
If all the walking has made you hungry you should head back to the banks of the Rhine in the city centre. Here you will find the restaurant and wine bar “Korkenzieher”. Its name is German for corkscrew and will not disappoint if you expect some excellent wines.
With its cozy atmosphere and a menu perfect for a get together at any time of the day this restaurant is the ideal pick for every gourmet who values great service and delicious food. Next to a good breakfast selection and waffles in the afternoon you can choose from a small but sophisticated wine menu. For those who struggle to choose the restaurant offers a wine tasting with a selection of your own choice and small snacks accompanying every glass.
Guests who would like to enjoy the dreamy view of Herdecke’s half-timbered houses while dining can sit outside, in front of the restaurant under two large CARAVITA parasols. Come rain, come shine, this hidden gem along the Rhine river unites idyllic views, delicious food and great wines and is definitely worth a visit.
