Gasthof Zufriedenheit is situated in Naumburg in the south of Saxony-Anhalt, known for its grand baroque townhouses. Artist Max Klinger described this area as ‘Tuscany of the north’, with vineyards covering the slopes’ fertile limestone soils. Romantic villas evoke memories of bygone years. Philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche spent his youth here, and at St. Wenzel’s Church close to the nearby Marktplatz, Johann Sebastian Bach played the famous Hildebrandt organ.
The menus at Gasthof Zufriedenheit’s Restaurant and Weinstube follow the seasons, featuring the hearty cuisine of Central Germany as well as contemporary European cuisine. The wines mainly originate from Saxony and Saxony-Anhalt. Weather permitting, you can enjoy your meal in the sheltered Hofgarten – a good place to sample the traditional homemade German Kuchen.
The spacious guest rooms and suites are stylish and modern. The well-stocked library houses many books on the fascinating area around Naumburg.
