Romantic Birthday dinner, impressed

Pros: interesting menu, attentive staff, beautiful views and restaurant. Special tasting from the chef! So impressed! Cons: best for a developed pallet with deer and oxtail

We visited this "museum" and restaurant and were very impressed. You need to make a reservation to visit the cellar with more than 3500 bottles of whisky. After the visit we enjoyed a really good lunch. Nice trip when it is raining!

Left with a bottle of whisky and a jar of whisky mustard both reasonably priced. The owner opened the museum for us, even though it was not officially a visiting day. The owner was an expert and had visited nearly all the distilleries himself. The place is deep in the cellar, and is prepared for a banquet. I would like... More

Wonderful place to visit for the whisky fan. The food is terrific, the atmosphere and host/chef was nothing short of amazing, and the whisky selection...oh, my...fantastic! Over 3000 bottles I believe. The price is really fair and I will definitely bring family & friends every time!

Yes, there is a world-class whisky museum located in central Germany. Amazing setting that is tucked into the historic Kyrburg castle ruins. We had a group of about 12 adults. Great food and a really informative tasting. When they heard it was my birthday, they poured me a glass of whisky from my birth year. Pretty amazing. If you coordinate... More

This was a really neat place. The dinner (salmon the night we went) was very good. The whisky tasting was fun and informative. Just imagine how good it would have been if I understood German! The entertainment (bagpipes on arrival and a singer/guitarist during the tasting) was also very good. It was a fun experience.

This restaurant is set on a hilltop beside the ruins of castle. The location is simply stunning.There is a huge terrace outdoors that overlooks Kirn and incorporates some of the castle ruins. Traditional and classy, the spacious indoor seating looked lovely as well... the entire restaurant, including the restrooms were beautifully appointed. There is a whiskey museum in the cellar...
