Great place to take guests

I never experienced life in the German Democratic Republic, but some friends told me to check out the Wartburg, because to them, it was like stepping back in time. Almost everything (I say "almost" because the beer pull taps are pretty modern : ) ) is from the 1970s and 1980s, from the... read more

I was brought to this during a visit with colleagues and the restaurant lived up to expectations. Truly authentic setting and great food. I had the grillhaxe with potatoes and sauerkraut.

I have been to many German restaurants but something was different about this place. May be because of the history and events attached to the GDR Times. Nice place to chat with friends, enjoy some beers and authentic German food and also suitable for the wallet.

The place itself is a fantastic throwback to an Eastern Germany setting looking like it has been untouched ever since. The menu is written in chalk on a board and the main dish, the "Grillhaxe", is amazing! I recommend this place for people living in Jena, visiting Jena or to take guests! The food is not only great but cheap... More

This is an original and authentically old DDR or GDR Restaurant with its food and furnitures, even those guys are running it and most of the customers as well. Just recommended for those who wants to get a touch of old and dusty stuff.
