Celebrity Chef

Restaurant „AURA" by Alexander Herrmann and Tobias Bätz

At Restaurant „AURA", top chef Tobias Bätz serves well-thought-out and original food combinations, full of exciting contrasting flavours. Diners have the choice between the menus "Kontrast" (contrasts that attract) and "OFF" (a vegetarian menu without fish and meat). Or you can opt for the chef’s special "Signature Dish" which is a mixture of both menus. Specialties include the exquisite saddle of deer smoked in hay with salted cherries, deer Beuschel (organ meat), red wine vinegar, and udon noodles. Those with a sweet tooth will surely love the plum sorbet with stewed plums, lukewarm yeast milk, and grated licorice truffles. Good to know: vegetarian and vegan options are available upon request.

Wirsberg surroundings

Restaurant Posthotel Alexander Herrmann is located in the town of Wirsberg, in Bavaria. There are many reasons why travelers love the Bavaria region: the gourmet cuisine, the beer, the good Franconian wine, the Bavarian dialect, the lovely landscape right before the Alps. In the Franconia region, small walled towns with historic townscapes, like Rothenburg ob der Tauber, attract visitors to take a tour. The nearby city of Munich, the capital of Bavaria, is popular for its many beer gardens, the Hofbräuhaus, and in autumn the world-famous Oktoberfest. Last but not least: at the highest point of the federal state, the 2963-meter-high Zugspitze, you can enjoy breathtaking views over the Alps.
