Who is allowed to travel?

Due to the permanently low incidence in the Rheinisch Bergisch district, tourist travel is expected to be permitted again from 03 June in addition to business travel.

What does the gastronomic offer look like?

We serve breakfast buffet style in our Jan Wellem restaurant from 07:00am to 11:00am. When you arrive, you can conveniently choose a time so that you can have a hearty breakfast while observing the hygiene rules.

The gastronomic offer includes the entire indoor gastronomy of the hotel with the Trattoria Enoteca, the Restaurant Vendôme and the Lobby Bar. Outside, the terrace of the Trattoria Enoteca is open daily. The Resaurants Jan Wellem opens the terrace depending on the weather and additionally invites you to the castle dinner on Friday and Saturday evenings. We recommend reserving a table directly when booking your room.

There is no longer a test requirement for outdoor catering. An infinite number of people may sit together at the table.

A negative Corona test (PCR test, certified POC antigen test) taken no more than 48 hours ago is a prerequisite for visiting indoor catering.
