We had a wonderful lunch with family and friends. The business lunch of homemade boar ham with feldsalat and Rinderfiletmedaillons with mustard sauce and potato puree was excellent value at €21.50. Also notable was the cinnamon octopus and the thyme and pear sorbet. The castle is spectacular and forms a perfect backdrop for a special occasion.

The place is impressive: architecture, materials, design, crafts... Don't miss to visit the toilets ;)!! The food is detailed prepared and every combination is unique and delicious! Price worth the full experience! A bit loud if full but it does not really bother if a business dinner. However, if a romantic one.... And the place is set for romantic dinners!

We visited with a party of 8 and thought food and service were outstanding. My wife and I had the Weiner Schnitzel and thought it was excellent. For starter, I had the corn soup and found it to have unique taste and would definitely order again. They offered menus in English which helped. The atmosphere of this restaurant in a... More

While staying in Essen we discovered this delightful castle, full of history and with a lovely restaurant. It was a stunning summer day and we expressed our preference to sit outside in one of the several empty tables on the terrace. We were advised they weren't available for reasons only known to the staff as they remained empty for the... More

Dear guest, thank you for your positive feedback due to your stay in our restaurant Hugenpöttchen. We are sorry that you weren’t able to sit outside on our beautiful terrace on that day. A customer event had a guaranteed booking for the whole terrace. As the reception had been delayed it seemed to you that the tables were not reserved.... More

We didn't actually stay at the hotel (maybe next year), but we went there several times to take photos of the castle and walk in the peaceful surrounds. Hugenpoet Castle belongs to the von Fürstenberg family. In 778, the lands around the castle were part of the manorial domain of Charlemagne. The von Fürstenbergs acquired the castle at the beginning... More

Excellent food for a good price. Nice ambiance. Both for business or for a romantic private dinner. Good service with a smile. I liked the wines even when I normally don't drink German wines.

The place (kind of a castle) the restaurant is located is just amazing. I was with my wife and as soon as arrived we asked for a glass of rose wine, and some more came during the entire dinner. The food is good, probably not the best i ever had, but very good. The cost, very very fair, which makes... More
