A chic bistro-restaurant with an amazing view

The lift on the ground floor takes you to the 15th floor to the rooftop of one of the highest buildings in Giessen(which is a very small city in middle giessen) When you enter the restaurant you get sort of a hectic atmosphere with loud conversations and dishes clanking from the kitchen, which is... read more

We were here for business trip, and hotel was just a few minutes walk away, so were here every morning. Coffee was great and their selection of desserts are amazing! My husband tried different cakes and it wasn't too sugary but all seemed fresh. We've only been to their ground coffee place, but never tried the restaurant. Only complaint: there's... More

Nice place for dancing, cool music and an amazing atmosphere. I prefer going there on friday nights or on the weekends; for having several drinks with friends and for dancing.

This restaurant/cafe has such a nice ambient with a great view. They could improve a lot on variety of dishes (for example, they have only one and very expensive meat dish) and service can sometimes be bad. But, there I ate a good pizza. In conclusion, place with a great potential, but still has lots of space to improve....

I used to go to the Dach Café as a child and couldn't wait to see it again. They have made it smaller inside and there is now a bar/dance area next to the restaurant. The crowd there were all 19-27-ish. I asked my cousin about the change and they said they no longer go because it has changed so... More

Nice view (obviously), nice bread as an appetizer. The pizzas are great and big, the lamb that I had, however, was nice but comes with nothing unless you pay extra for sides and it's two small pieces of lamb on a plate the size of an SUV wheel.

Comparing to the rest cafes of the town is way better preserved and with very nice personel that OMG is able... More

Like what they did with the place, during my student times it was only for grannies to have their afternoon tea. Now very stylish with cafe, restaurant and sky bar. The food is good, fresh local and partially unusual ingredients. Fantastic home-made ice cream. Will go there for a business dinner with a large group soon, so curious to see... More

This was a fashionable, hipsters' hang out in a traditional and quiet university town. Worth it for the 13th floor view.

Skyview is best of town, Enjoy disco nights on Friday and Saturday between 11 and 1.30 (then change to Admirals...). Prices are ok.
