Overlook –
The Drink

During Michelberger Music, our Overlook room on the fourth floor became unofficial afterhours music making headquarters at the hotel. Naturally, a libation was usually required, and often obtained at the bar on the way up to the top of the hotel. So the bar team came up with something energising, refreshing and strong to power those collaborative sessions into the small hours. This is how Overlook – the drink – is made: ()

People
All Inclusive

If we believe that people are innocent by nature, we can accept that all the wrong doing comes from the stories they are telling themselves and history they create by interacting with their parents, friends and social surrounding, over the years. Defence is the first act of war. So if we don’t fire back, we open the gates to peace. If we show understanding for other opinions and views, we build ()

New Dinner
Menu

Alan and his team have been busy creating some new dishes for the evening menu in the restaurant, with the cooler season’s produce playing a starring role. Roberto’s veggies in all their glory feature on the grilled cabbage dish, with kale, spitzkohl, salsify and liquorice root. The duck pastilla in the meat section makes a nice rich wintery addition to the menu, and the whole of the fish section has ()

Black Magic Baby Jesus –
Exhibition & Performance by Ramin Krause

We met Ramin when he was here for Michelberger Music, alongside Vincent Moon and his crew of filmmakers. A couple of weeks ago Ramin told us about a special project he has been working on… One year ago I sailed on a sail boat around the South Pacific and when our boat broke, I was stranded on a small Island. I ended up staying for 6 months, living in villages ()

Monday Live: Khruangbin + Colin Stetson
Michelberger Music Aftershow

Oh man…the first musical experience in our hotel following the pure magic wonder of Michelberger Music. Still impossible to find words, and even more impossible to envision regular shows in our lobby. LUCKILY…. Colin hit us up. He would have been part of the festival, if he wasn’t already booked for a gig on the same weekend in New York. He almost flew in for a couple of hours. Same ()
