Culinary highlights in Weimar
When the doors are opened during a warm summer evening and a wave of lush smell comes in from the garden or when the summer terrace drives its guest's sight towards the sky, where millions of stars are glowing peacefully. It is this unique atmosphere that the Restaurant Anna Amalia always puts its guests first. In the much-lauded star restaurant and in the historic vaulted cellars of the Elephantenkeller, we serve culinary delights characterized by Italian and local cuisine. We also welcome you to relax with a cognac or cocktail, piano music and a great view over the historic market square in Weimar in our Elephant Bar.
Please contact us to make your reservation at one of our restaurants. If you want to contact us via phone, please call +49 3643 802 0 or you write us an e-mail. We look forward to welcomes you at Hotel Elephant in Weimar.

Take a seat and get inspired by the historic atmosphere of the century-old cellar ceiling...In the Elephantenkeller, our regional specialty restaurant in Weimar, we serve Original Thuringian specialties in an ambiance that even Goethe very much appreciated and drank a glass of Madeira. Bright wooden furniture and flickering candles illuminate the historic Elephantenkeller in an incomparable light. Special attention deserves the delicious crispy duck with Original Thuringian dumplings that matches perfectly to a fresh beer from the tab. View Menu

Our restaurant recommendation outside of the hotel
Tavern "Weißer Schwan"
Welcome to one of the oldest taverns of Europe and one of Goethe's favourites. This is a place where the traditional art of hospitality prevails. Experience for yourself what original Thuringian hospitality entails. The tavern Gasthaus 'Zum weissen Schwan' is closely intertwined with the history of Weimar itself, the one of Hotel Elephant and, last but not least, the one of Johann Wolfgang von Goethe. 'The Swan', how locals lovingly nicknamed it, is only a few minutes' walk from Hotel Elephant, Weimar. As Goethe once mentioned in a letter of 1827: "The swan welcomes everyone warmly and with open wings". Nothing has changed since then, and 'The Swan' still is the perfect place to savour the best of original Thuringian specialities.
