Art meets Culinaries

By now, it has become a much-loved tradition to provide space in our Restaurant zur Prinzenbrücke in order to help young artists from local schools to expose their works of art. It is also an adventure for the young artists to exhibit their artworks outside school to a broader public. We are looking forward to both hosting and enjoying further exhibitions in our ambiance.
