Scala Turmhotel Jena
The panoramic view over the roof-tops of the city of Jena has already been legendary for a long time, and the tower restaurant that makes the most of this view is well known far beyond the borders of Thuringia. Visitors to the restaurant can look forward to high-quality international gourmet cuisine accompanied by a fine selection of top wines.
The restaurant has established itself as a top location for top-quality culinary delicacies in Thuringia, as is proven by a multitude of awards and the high points total that it achieves in the “Gault & Millau” restaurant guide, a bible for connoisseurs, year after year. The man behind this successful dining institution is Christian Hempfe, a head chef with a passion for cooking. His culinary creations are truly bursting with his love of experimentation and his preference for Mediterranean aromas and specialities from the Far East is clear for all to see ... and taste. The chef de cuisine also loves cooking with regional products and serving seasonal delicacies, which is why the restaurant’s wine menu reads like the who’s who of winegrowers in the Saale-Unstrut wine-growing region. Another of the restaurant’s specialities is its home-made chocolates, which are served to guests after their meal as a special amuse-bouche.
