My sister and I found a postcard of Cafe Winuwuk from 1951 when our parents visited Bad Harzburg. We travelled from London to see the places they had been to. To see it still there and thriving was delightful. It is a beautiful spot and we had coffee, tea, delicious toast with cheese, cake and wine to celebrate our special... More

Before making a 10 km walk through the forest near Bad Harzburg we decided to visit the café Winuwuk. Partly because we would like to have a coffee and a snack anyway, partly because of the interesting history and architecture of the café. It has been designed in the early 20s by the German sculptor and painter Bernhard Hoetger who... More

We visited the cafe on a sunny day of August. However it was very enjoying and like Spring for somebody who travelled here from Greece a few days ago having 35 degrees Celcius. Taste the handmade sweets with your coffee and do not skip to visit the Sonnenhof, where possibly you can buy a souvenir (or gift)

We went just for soup, which was perfect. The wife had asparagus, I had goulash, both were wonderful. Quirky little place out of the way on the hillside. Kitchen hours and days are limited, so check first before making the trip.

We have visited this quirky cafe/restaurant on a couple of occassions. Well worth a visit if you find yourself in the Harz Area.

If you have time for a detour while visiting Braunschweig in Northern Germany, check out Café Winuwuk in the Harz Mountains (they have a website with the very unusual history of the café which dates back to the thirties). There is usually a fire crackling in the fireside and the cakes are out of this world! Very friendly waitresses. Except... More
