Invitingly northern German & stylishly casual!

The feeling of coming home, relaxed tranquillity and a dreamlike view of the Kiel Fjord: this is how the venerable Kiel Merchant welcomes its guests.

Situated in a magnificent park, the hotel offers the perfect setting for a relaxing time-out for two, weddings and also for creative conferences.

Familie Lessau

Our hosts

The owner of the property is the association "Kieler Kaufmann e.V.", which wanted to create a place of meeting and exchange of opinions with the hotel of the same name. The history of the hotel dates back to the middle of the 19th century, when the banker Wilhelm Ahlmann acquired the property to build his retirement home here. After his death, his descendants initially continued to run it until they had to sell it. The estate has been owned by the association since the end of the Second World War. The hosts at the Romantik Hotel Kieler Kaufmann, Carl-Heinz and Marlies Lessau and their son Kilian Lessau.

Culinary delights

Enjoy in Romantik Hotel Kieler Kaufmann
Enjoy

No less than two new restaurants and a bar skilfully combine tradition and zeitgeist and invite you to linger. At the Kaufmannsladen, guests dine refreshingly and casually. There are steaks and burgers, fish and vegetables. Regional, down-to-earth, delicious. With a view of the Baltic Sea and a large, panoramic terrace. Ahlmanns is run by chef Arne Linke and has already been awarded a Michelin star twice. His style? A modern product cuisine that focuses on the essentials and is cosmopolitan, seasonal & creative. The new bar Soll und Haben at Kieler Kaufmann invites you to quiet sounds, fine drinks and good conversation.

The Ahlmanns Fine-Dining Restaurant
Ahlmanns

Ahlmanns offers modern cuisine in a historic setting. A harmoniously delicious field of tension, awarded with a Michelin star. Modern, fresh and rich in flavours. Guests at Ahlmanns experience an open-minded, modern and product-based regional cuisine. Well-known ingredients are interpreted differently, beautifully different. The stylish, modern interior provides a relaxed setting to spend a wonderful evening in an informal atmosphere. Britta Künzl is hostess and sommelière. For each menu by Arne Linke, she offers an optimally matched wine menu.

Kaufmannsladen
Kaufmannsladen

In the Kaufmannsladen, chef Nils Nestler has culinary responsibility. After training as a chef at the Kieler Kaufmann and years of international travel, he returned to the Romantik Hotel Kieler Kaufmann in 2010. In the somewhat different steak & grill restaurant, products from the region, more precisely from northern Germany, are processed. This means short distances, free-range farming and little stress for the animals. And you can taste that!

Soll & Haben - Bar at the Kieler Kaufmann
Soll & Haben

The "Soll & Haben" is the heart of our hotel. Whether for coffee and tea time in the afternoon, or in the evening for a cocktail, whiskey or gin and tonic by the fireplace: in the Soll & Haben you can experience the history of our house. Regional, stylish, timeless - the bar menu is just like the ambience. We serve craft beers as well as classic cocktails and North German specialities.
