Bergisch Gladbach, Restaurant Vendôme

Bergisch Gladbach, Germany

Part of Gastronomic Experiences Collection



Despite borrowing its name from the town in France, Vendôme doesn’t serve French food. Far from it, in fact. Joachim Wissler’s restaurant is a proponent of neue Deutsche küche, a doctrine that sees German restaurants break away from Gallic influence.



Vendôme restaurant is located in the very grand and stately Schloss Bensberg in Bergisch-Gladbach. In a fantastic location overlooking the bay of Cologne and providing wonderful views of Cologne Cathedral, the Grandhotel Schloss Bensberg certainly knows to fascinate all visitors – be it on a business trip, a city break to Cologne, or a wellness weekend.

Style of Food

3-star chef Joachim Wissler serves exquisite culinary art in the gourmet restaurant Vendome. He may take you on a small or large culinary journey. For lunch you can enjoy the chef's culinary compositions in a four-course gourmet lunch or enjoy a variety of alternating culinary highlights.


It is his love for the product and for pure favour as well as his infinity for refined compositions yet without frills that make Joachim Wissler one of Germany’s best chefs. His individual style of cooking combines provocative, modern and creative elements, whereby he’s picking up components of molecular cuisine to accent his creations. Joachim Wissler is considered to be one of the shaping personalities that are defining the so called trend of the “New German School”, saying that almost forgotten regional products and dishes are experiencing a modern rebirth.
