Traditional Restaurant in Saverne
History of the house from 1605 onwards
Located in a pedestrian street in the very heart of Saverne, the Taverne Katz restaurant does not pass unnoticed. Its beautiful façade in sculpted timber is a fine example of the German Renaissance style. Built in 1605 by Henri Katz, the Receiver General of the Bishopric, the building has since become an emblematic site of the Bas-Rhin.
The house is a beautiful legacy of the past. Over the years, even centuries, this address has remained a reflection of everyday life throughout history. What was originally a butcher's shop became a cooperage, and then later down the line, a restaurant.
This monument to Alsatian art perfectly reflects the warm ambience of a real Winstub (traditional wine bar). With its surprisingly ornate facade, the restaurant is one of the most interesting buildings within the city of Saverne. As you walk by, your eyes will immediately be drawn to this stunning façade.
