Jagdhof Glashütte in the idyllic Rothaar mountains in Sauerland was once a simple inn. Local lumberjacks, hunters and nobility from the region went there for a good glass of beer or Schnapps at the end of the day. In 1975, 20-year old Edmund Dornhöfer took over the business from his father, who had passed away. Over the past 40 years Edmund has transformed the inn into an exceptional five-star hotel in every respect. One of the best in Germany and a pearl of hospitality where culinary enjoyment and authenticity reign supreme.
Jagdhof Glashütte’s kitchen team puts their heart and soul into preparing dishes using regional and national, seasonal products. It is not without a reason that the huge sign ‘Soul Kitchen’ hangs over the kitchen door!
Just like the other areas of the half-timbered hotel, the rooms of Jagdhof Glashütte are luxurious and rural, but above all romantically decorated. Right down to the rose petals on the bed and champagne in the cooler.
‘Soul Kitchen’ is written above the door into the kitchen in restaurant Ars Vivendi. Chef Claudio Urro and his team certainly take this to heart. Adorning the walls in the kitchen are king size portraits of famous chefs, such as Sergio Herman. The chef and his team are not only inspired by the abundant nature surrounding them, but also by the great names in the culinary world. Chef Claudio Urro and Chef-Patissier Ralph Hollokoi, who, as vegetarian is also responsible for vegetarian dishes, create classic dishes with a modern twist, sourcing seasonal produce locally whenever possible. Jagdhof Glashütte houses 2 other restaurants, where you can enjoy a simpler but still excellent lunch or dinner.
The superb breakfast buffet, with its friendly and flexible staff, is outstanding. It is a breakfast featuring almost everything home made with a great variety of fruit juices, exceptional delicatessen and creative egg dishes, including scrambled eggs with truffles.
The lounge-hall with large open fire place and large comfortable chairs is out of a story book. It is the place to enjoy a simple lunch or coffee and cake.
