Housed in a neoclassical 1839 villa, the Literatur House is a cultural institution seeped in old school charm. Before it was left derelict for several years, the villa in the Uhlenhorst district north of the city center served as a dance school and a home for girls. In 1985, the historic building was painstakingly restored with help from an unnamed donor; now, chandeliers drop over crisp white table cloths and elaborate stucco decorative elements on walls and ceilings are back to their original glory. From a menu focusing on what’s seasonal and regional, try a sweet taste of Germany with the Pflaumen Knödel, soft dumplings filled with plum and cognac swimming in a vanilla cream sauce.
