Two of Europe’s finest chefs team up and cook a dinner extraordinaire in an enchanting ensemble of a Roman villa and Renaissance château in the very heart of the border triangle where Germany, Luxembourg and France meet.


Christian Bau of 3*Michelin establishment Victor’s Fine Dining cooks with Eric Vildgaard from 2*Michelin Jordnær for one night exclusively.

Sunday November 1st at Victor’s Fine Dining in Perl-Nennig, Germany.

Reservations: Fully booked.





A dedicated team. An exclusive ambience. Unique culinary creations. These are the hallmarks of Victor’s Fine Dining by Christian Bau, who was awarded his three Michelin stars in 2005 and has retained them ever since.

Bau’s menus read like a map of the world, with unique dishes created from exquisite ingredients, from exotic shellfish and seafood, to meat-based dishes to stunning desserts. Accompanied, of course, by matching wines selected for you by Nina Mann, Gault & Millau’s ‘Sommelière of the Year 2020’.

Victor’s Fine Dining is located in the beautiful castle Schloss Berg, which is part of the Victor’s Residenz-Hotel Schloss Berg. The Renaissance castle at the top Mosel in Perl-Nennig stands on the edge of Saarland and is very close to France, Luxemburg and Belgium.

Behind the castle façade, one will discover the quite unique fine-dining experience of 3*Michelin Victor’s Fine Dining. Creativity and the intensity of the flavours brought this restaurant to what it is today; one of the best haute cuisine restaurants in Germany.

Christian Bau firstly became a master of the French cuisine and was recognised for it before he completely changed the concept of the cuisine into a highly creative, contemporary cooking with massive influences from Asia. This demands enormous skills as well as bravery. Christian Bau is one of the few chefs in the world who successfully managed to make this change and combine these kitchens into a high-end fine dining experience.

Christian Bau is a specialist for fish and seafood, and by using elements of the Japanese dining culture, he creates taste patterns that are equally sophisticated and harmoniously stimulating. This includes his exceptional sense for top quality and freshness. Many products are prepared to be consumed raw.

No other but Christian Bau himself stands at the stove and lends a hand on each plate. The same applies for purchasing the ingredients. A dish is only prepared if all ingredients are available in the highest quality.

The same high standard is being used when it comes to wine. The fantastic selection of 780 types of wine and, recently, sake are stored within the castle’s historical vaulted cellar.

You will be surprised at the big armada of dishes which will come your way. Prepare yourself for deep and intense flavours in a castle environment you never will forget. Victor’s Fine Dining Schloss Berg is a must in Germany.




“Jordnær – a love story.”

A former gang enforcer found the right path in life through unconditional love toward his wife and gastronomy, and created a two-starred Michelin restaurant in a historic but humble hotel within three years, while looking after six kids.

Jordnær took everyone in and outside Denmark by surprise when Michelin awarded the then unknown restaurant in the northern suburbs of Copenhagen a star during its first year of opening.

Since then, it has been full throttle on flavours — creating picturesque plates and mouth-watering creations of Nordic, French and Asian ingredients cooked with remarkable harmony. Amongst critics and global diners Jordnær quickly became a darling, and the restaurant was awarded a second Michelin star in February 2020, less than three years after opening.

The passionately run Jordnær (translation; Down to Earth) is housed in the northern suburbs of the city, on the ground floor of an unassuming looking hotel. Once inside, it’s a different story; the building dates from 1666 and the appealingly rustic modern restaurant comes with well-spaced tables, grey-painted timbers and superb mood lighting.

Seasonal ingredients are foraged by the talented, generous and largely self-taught chef, Eric Kragh Vildgaard, whose precise, skilfully prepared dishes have pure and harmonious flavours. His wife Tina is in charge of the service, which is performed with genuine warmth and knowledge.

Duo Tina & Eric Kragh Vildgaard bring forth new tones rooted in French, Nordic and Japanese traditions based mostly on Danish ingredients.

The atmosphere is very warm in the modernised “inn” with attractive plank floors, Nordic designer furniture and the impressive beam ceiling, with the service being both professional and personal.

Jordnær is a modern, sophisticated gem that suddenly popped up in the middle of the slightly old fashioned, bourgeoisie Gentofte-suburb of Copenhagen. It’s the story of the ugly duckling that turned into a beautiful swan in no time.

Nobody saw it coming. They do now.
