Sitting proud alongside the river Main is Gerbermühle restaurant and wintergarten!  And without a doubt, it’s a beautiful oasis which not only allows you leave the hustle and bustle behind you but it gives you the most magnificent view of it’s skyline if you choose to look back!  Also worth mentioning is that it easily made its way into our best restaurants in Frankfurt feature. 

The Story

Originally built as a flour mill in the 1520s, the Gerbermühle later became better known as the summer residence of Goethe. History and stories of Goethe and his entourage still fill it’s walls and small reminders of this bygone era still remain!  In the early 1900’s Gerbermühle became a popular tavern and slowly transformed into what you find today!

The Vibe

In essence, the concept serves to marry traditional values with the ever evolving tastes of today.  Moreover, purist design together with authentic materials exude an atmosphere of comfort and warmth.  For example the deep mahogany tables are neatly dressed with crisply folded white linen napkins and finished with simple fresh flower centre pieces.  Whilst Louis XVI chairs upholstered with mahogany leather and adorned with a bronze nail-head trim complete the dining set up.  Finally, Victorianesq portraits and gilded frames along with chandeliers suspended from the ceilings are a dominant feature throughout the ground floor!

The  Gerbermühle Restaurant and Wintergarten

Gerbermühle truly celebrates German cuisine! Jörg Ludwig and his team delight customers with not only sophisticated menus but also with popular German and Frankfurt specialities.  For example schnitzel and Grünesoße are just some of the local dishes you can expect to find.

The Wintergarten, or as some might describe it, the Conservatory, is suffused with light and it affords a panoramic view of the garden outside. In the summer months meals can be enjoyed on the adjacent terraces against the backdrop of the Frankfurt skyline.

Also worthy noting is the the private dining option that is available.  Perfect for special celebrations and/or a more intimate setting.

The Gerbermühle Bar

Last but certainly not least is the Gerbermühle bar!  With its old school charm and it’s small glass floor section where you can catch a glimpse deep below the foundation, it’s perfect for pre-drinks or a nightcap!  Furthermore, the high ceilings and and exposed stone walls add to the dramatic flare and feel!
