Restaurant with Gotteskeller bar and a 500 year-old tradition
If you would like to experience seafaring tradition up close, you can’t do better than the Seafarer's Guild building. This proud, gabled house opposite the seafarers’ church St Jacob's has been a home to mariners and captains for 500 years and today it invites guests from all round the world to enjoy maritime society and hospitality. The Seafarer's Guild seems to have been spawned by the St. Nicholas fraternity which – like all fraternities – had to dissolve after the Reformation. A visit to the Seafarer's Guild is an ideal opportunity to try the typical seaman’s dish “labskaus”. This is a potato dish with salted meat, pickled herring, fried egg and beetroot. Delicious! Our tip: In summer, the “sundeck” in the idyllic inner courtyard is open! A wonderful oasis of green with a view of the impressive spire of St. Jacob’s.
