Restaurant Gräfinthaler Hof



brief description: 

Gräfinthaler Hof is situated on the lower reaches of the river Blies, near the town of Bliesmengen-Bolchen, in the vicinity of the border between Lorraine and the Saarland. The former monastery was a gift by the Countess of Blieskastel who, in 1243, bestowed it upon the monastic order of the Hermits of Saint William as a token of her gratitude for the recovery of her health. Today, the building erected on the vestiges of the monastery in the village of Gräfinthal houses a charming restaurant with a rural ambience. Included on the menu are traditional delicacies from the Saar region as well as numerous fish specialties. The restaurant also disposes of a modern, elegant conservatory annexe and a Mediterranean garden terrace which provides shade during the summer months
