Restaurant “Weingärtnerhaus”

Restaurant “Weingärtnerhaus”

About history

The restaurant “Weingärtnerhaus” takes its name from the historic vineyards that lie just below the castle. In 1542 the Leitheim vineyard was surrounded with a solid wall and a magnificent vinedresser’s house was constructed.

In 2014, the historic building was sensitively renovated and the charming, wood-paneled rooms and elegant dining rooms lovingly furnished.

This is what awaits you today in the Weingärtnerhaus

Today, we pamper you with culinary delights at the open fireplace or the beautiful tiled traditional stove. Our distinguished prelate’s room is especially well suited for private parties.

Our “Weingärtnerhaus” is not only beautiful, but also from a culinary point of view something very special: You can look forward to award-winning cuisine!

“The flavoursome food on offer in this lovely wine grower’s house built in 1542 (named after the vineyards just below it) is made using top-quality produce. Try the warm carpaccio of calf’s head with prawns and truffle sabayon or the Berlin-style zander with black pudding and mash. The wine list contains a number of South African vintages.”

That’s what “Schlemmer Atlas” says about us

At Leitheim Castle near Donauwörth, directly above the historic vineyards and the “Young Danube river” ,
chef Paul Zinsmeister and his team pamper their guests in a stately atmosphere –
and at a high level. In cozy, elegant rooms with a tiled stove or near the open fireplace, you can taste the
Mediterranean-inspired, down-to-earth dishes.
How about baked shrimp tartare and avocado or a tender pink roasted duck breast with cherry
sauce, snow peas and potato cookies? A fruity white from Germany or a selected drop from Italy,
France or South Africa complement the dishes.”
