Gastronomy

LUDWIG IM STAATENHAUS... GASTRONOMY FOR YOUR SPECIAL TIME AT THE OPERA.

We adapt to your wishes and needs as much as possible and wish to give you a wonderful time with our friendly, courteous and above all timely service and make your interval at StaatenHaus even more enjoyable.

We are also happy to welcome you one hour before the start of the event with selected drinks and freshly prepared snacks. Of course, we also offer this service during the interval. In order to plan your visit to the opera in advance, you are welcome to make a reservation for the drinks and food you would like from the menu, which will also guarantee you a seat in the foyer. You can have your drinks/snacks outside in the arcades (main entrance) or at the bistro tables in the foyer. The offer, including a link to order by email, can be found here. For group reservations and smaller receptions, we will be happy to put together an individual offer for you. Simply let us know your wishes in advance and we will contact you with tailor-made proposals. We look forward to seeing you – in the ambience of opera and gourmet delights!

The team from Ludwig im StaatenHaus

PRESS REVIEWS

“An opera evening is not only about enjoying the art, the interval has to be bridged – gladly with refreshments from the bar [...]. This is brilliantly solved in the StaatenHaus, where visitors are welcomed with drinks halfway to the foyer. The service at the bar is excellent, quick and competent, there are hardly any queues."

// Opernfreund, 14.12.2015 by Jochen Rüth

"The counter for drinks is so long that there is hardly any congestion. The staff is very friendly [...]"

// Express, 17.11.2015 by Christof Ernst
