Easy living in Hamburg’s cozy St. Georg quarter

Cox is one of Hamburg’s most fashionable restaurants, serving German food with a French touch. The chef uses spices from all corners of the world, and the food is served on beautiful dishes.

Das Dorf

Too much of a good thing can be wonderful. At least the chefs at Das Dorf thinks so. This cozy, rustic restaurant serves genuine German dishes, like original Wiener Schnitzel, served with homebaked bread. And the location doesn’t get any more central than this – Das Dorf is located a stone’s throw from the central station, the Ohnzorg-Theater and the Deutsches Schauspielhaus.
