Wetzlar Food Guide: 10 Must-Eat Restaurants & Street Food Stalls in Wetzlar

July 27, 2017 Natalie Tallman

Wetzlar is a city located in the state of Hesse, Germany. It is a former free imperial city that owed much of its fame to being the seat of the Imperial Supreme Court (Reichskammergericht) of the Holy Roman Empire. Located at 8° 30′ E, 50° 34′ N, Wetzlar straddles the river Lahn and is on the German Timber-Frame Road which passes mile upon mile of half-timbered houses. Historically, the city has acted as the hub of the Lahn-Dill-Kreis on the north edge of the Taunus. The city is known for its ancient town and its medieval cathedral.

Hoernsheimer Eck

Reviewed By Jerry W - Portland, Oregon

Dinner here with friends from Wetzlar. This is a warm, comfortable place with a complete and varied fish menu of sweetwater and saltwater varieties. Very good food - the fish is prepared with skill and a very light touch. The mixed appetizer plate was simply delicious and could be dinner for two. This night they also had Iberian pork roast on the menu. It was absolutely the best pork roast I have ever eaten! Dining with friends is always a treat, but this is a very hospitable place where even the most solitary traveler would be welcome.

Steakhaus Bolero

Reviewed By 40somethingboy - Oxfordshire

I heard a lot about this place from others. Went for a classic steak and chips option. It was okay but nothing more than I expected. Roughly £25 for steak, chips and a beer.
If you are visiting Wetzlar this is a safe option but I've had worse and I've had much better. A little overrated perhaps?

Alte Lahnmuhle im Landhotel Naunheimer Muhle

Reviewed By David S - Wellington, New Zealand

My wife and I had dinner at Alte Lahnmuhle during a recent stay in Wetzlar. The food was simple yet delicious and involved ordering food off the menu as well as a buffet for salads.
The staff were exceptionally friendly and helpful, speaking good English, and offering good wine suggestions to accompany our food.
The restaurant itself is typically German, with wood beams and white walls, and is charming and comfortable with a warm atmosphere.

Wirt am Dom

Reviewed By 2409JohnEurope - Sonthofen, Germany

The only restaurant in Wetzlar, during our one evening visit, which was well visited. We ordered two different pasta dishes which both looked the same when they arrived. Although one was with fish and the other...I've forgotten, they both tasted the same because of the thick tomatoe sauce. The price was high for what we ate and drank but average for Wetzler. Maybe there is nothing better there.

Absolutely marvelous. An Italian restaurant run by Italian's (!!) in the middle of Wetzlar. Authentic dishes made with quality ingredients by a chef that obviously takes pride in his cooking. Happy, friendly service provides the Icing on the cake. Also very reasonable prices.

Travelling through Wetzlar we stayed overnight and whilst looking at this lovely cafe one of the staff came out to admire our dog. From there we went in and enjoyed a great bowl of soup, some cake and drinks. Highly recommended for friendly service

Ludwig's

Reviewed By Dina_and_Juergen - Riyadh, Saudi Arabia

...right at entrance of city center and being hosted in an old, but completely rebuilt Fachwerkhaus (old German style housing) where a tower is connected with a wooden bridge to main building. We have been sitting at this bridge with lovely weather, really a pleasure. Pleasure was as well our food, whereas service was average. Given price level and food quality, not to mention the great Seating, we would definitely go back to this place in case we are in Wetzlar again!
