Where to eat and drink in Bad Kreuznach, Germany
Last updated: November 2020
Bad Kreuznach is a town in Rhineland-Palatinate, Germany. It is a spa town most known for its medieval bridge dating from around 1300. The Alte Nahebrücke is one of the few remaining bridges in the world with buildings on it. The town is located in the Nahe river wine region, known both nationally and internationally for its wines with Riesling, Silvaner and Müller-Thurgau grape varieties.
Wirtshaus Wolpertinger serves typical German cuisine and the restaurant is cozy. The staff was friendly and helpful to find gluten-free alternatives. I chose baked potato with sour cream and herbs, served with smoked salmon and a green salad.
You will find Wirtshaus Wolpertinger on Kornmarkt nº1, Bad Kreuznach, Germany.
Underneath I have listed some restaurants which I haven’t visited yet, but are on my list! I got these reco’s from gluten-free friends, family and followers. As I said – I have not tested these gastronomies myself (so far) and cannot say anything about how it looks here with a possible cross-contamination and whether there is an understanding for celiac disease sufferers. Please do not take it as recommendations, but only as additional options. If you’ve visited any of the restaurants, or if you have another tip, feel free to write me about it in the comments!
- Schwedisches Steh-Café: a small and cozy café in one of the beautiful bridge houses of Bad Kreuznach. I definitely want to try the gluten-free Toblerone Tårta (a Swedish almond tarte with Toblerone chocolate) and the gluten-free Mandel Tårta (Swedish almond tart without chocolate) at my next visit. Address: Mannheimer Straße nº88, Bad Kreuznach, Germany.
Where to eat and drink in Flonheim, Germany
About 30 kilometres away from Bad Kreuznach lays the small town of Flonheim. The village of Flonheim is mostly known for its vineyards and wine events, such as the wine market at the historic marketplace (May) and the Wine festival (September). Many hiking trails invite you to take a walk in the surroundings.
Trautwein – Das Winzerhotel am la Roche
Located in the middle of the vineyards, “La Roche”, you have a breathtaking view of the Rheinhessen hilly landscape. A winemaker couple will welcome you heartily in the newly built Trautwein Winery, restaurant and hotel. At the top of the la Roche you have a kilometer-wide view over the “Rheinhessen Tuscany”, the trullo, the quarry, the vineyards and the Aulheim valley.
The menu has lots of gluten-free options as well as vegetarian and vegan cuisine. From tapas to around-the-world bowls and German flammkuchen to burgers, there is really something for everybody on the menu. Allergens are clearly marked on the menu.
Actually we only came to visit the vineyard and try some local wines but since there were so many gluten-free dishes I just had to try something. The Crème brûlée was very tasty with a light vanilla taste and delicious caramelized sugar topping. Make sure to try some local wines also, ask the waiter for a reco.
You will find Trautwein – Das Winzerhotel am la Roche on Außerhalb nº12, Flonheim, Germany.
I cannot guarantee that all restaurants and stores listed above are 100% free of gluten. Always check with the restaurant for cross-contamination and whether there is an understanding for celiac disease sufferers.
