Stay and enjoy


Wonderful view over the river Weser


The conversion work in the former café is in full swing: on 1 May, the Macke family will open the new BISTRO CARL on the FÜRSTENBERG castle grounds, where visitors can enjoy fresh, regional and seasonal cuisine in a new, modern ambience and concept, while enjoying the view of the MUSEUM SCHLOSS FÜRSTENBERG and the Weser River.

“With the Macke family we have found an excellent and experienced gastronomy partner for our new BISTRO CARL,” says a delighted Stephanie Saalfeld, Managing Director of the Porzellanmanufaktur FÜRSTENBERG. Iris and Carsten Macke have been running the Landhaus Sollingshöhe in the Silberborn district (Holzminden) for more than 25 years, which is one of the best restaurants in the area. The family business has been run by the family since 1848 and their son Moritz Macke is already firmly anchored in the gastronomy and opened the Silberborn Pestowerkstatt in addition to his apprenticeship as a cook.

In the BISTRO CARL, visitors can expect modern, fresh bistro cuisine that is always varied, regional and seasonal. Of course, homemade cakes and tarts and matching coffee specialities are a must. For groups and festivities, the team of the BISTRO CARL offers special offers on request.

The former café is currently being renovated to match the new culinary concept. The renowned design agency Meiré&Meiré, which was already responsible for the redesign of the museum, also created the interior design of the new BISTRO CARL. A modern interior with Scandinavian influences, which is straightforward and clear and at the same time hygge (Norwegian: cosy) and full of loving details, characterises the image of the new bistro and thus builds a bridge to the design of the MUSEUM SCHLOSS FÜRSTENBERG. Outside, there will be a beer garden on the eastern – facing the street – side of the bistro.
