My Route du Bonheur

From Dresde to Göttingen

In another life, Ralf Kutzner was a Michelin starred chef. Today he is an exceptional hotel manager at Bülow Palais, and was named "Hotelier of the Year" by Gault Millau in 2009. "I was born in 1958 in the suburbs of Cologne. When I was a kid, I wanted to work as an apprentice and then become a chef. My career has taken me to Switzerland, Hong Kong, Edinburgh and London. In 1993, when many people living in this part of the country were heading for the West, I arrived at Bülow Palais, in Dresden. It was an incredible experience, because living in Dresden in the early 1990s was like living in permanent springtime. In that new life, everything seemed possible. That was twenty years ago, and my family and I have never regretted the decision."

Frauenkirche, Dresden

Frauenkirche, Dresden

This splendid Lutheran church is the symbol of the city. After being completely destroyed during the Allied bombing of 13 February 1945, the church was rebuilt exactly as it was and reconsecrated on 30 October 2005. The cross on top was made by an English artist, Alan Smith. In addition to services, concerts are held here.

Military History Museum, Dresden

Military History Museum, Dresden

Located in a former arsenal, this museum reveals different aspects of the military world. I really like the modernity of the site, which re-opened in 2011 after being completely overhauled by the famous American architect Daniel Libeskind. The museum contains hundreds of thousands of objects, ranging from a simple soldier’s medal to the Soyuz 29 capsule, in which the first German cosmonaut, Sigmund Jähn, flew in 1978.

Meissen porcelain

Meissen porcelain

It was in Meißen, a few kilometres from Dresden, that Europe’s first porcelain factory was opened in 1710, benefiting from the nearby kaolin deposits. All across the continent, royal factories attempted to equal the quality of the objects produced in the Meißen workshops, known as "hard-paste" porcelain. But to no avail! Three hundred years later, each piece made on the premises can still be identified by the mark of the two crossed blue swords.

Hotel Schloss Hohenhaus

Herleshausen - Germany

Hotel and restaurant in the country. “Just one movement by Bach is worth an entire symphony of other music”, commented the Russian cellist Rostropovich. The memory of Johann Sebastian Bach lives on in and around the Hotel Hohenhaus, close to the town of Eisenach where the German composer was born and spent his childhood. The sublime melancholy of his cello suites can perhaps be attributed to these wooded landscapes. This is the perfect place to savour culinary highlights at the Hohenhaus restaurant, enjoy nature’s charms and have a relaxing or active stay devoted to outdoor pursuits and swimming in the indoor pool. ...

Luisenhall saltworks

Luisenhall saltworks

Opened in 1854, the Luisenhall saltworks are, a century and a half later, the last remaining working industrial saltworks in Europe. Scraping techniques that date back to the Middle Ages are still used today to extract and produce salt (from natural brine found 450 metres underground). The factory is open to visitors, and you will go away with a sachet of salt at the end of your visit.

Käse Boucoiran, Göttingen

Käse Boucoiran, Göttingen

This is a lovely story: Paulette Klages is a Frenchwoman who followed her husband to Germany. This former German teacher found that all that was missing from her life were certain cheeses, so she decided to open her own cheese shop in Göttingen. In 2005 she was named the best cheese seller in the world. That says it all. Today, people flock to her dairy shop, located on Kurze Straße 3.
