Restaurant Manager Sarah Leuwer

Restaurantleiterin Sarah Leuwer

One era comes to an end; a new era begins. For many years, Antje Kirsch as maître d' was the face and good spirit of the Caroussel Restaurant. The Caroussel has regularly been awarded top marks not only for the cuisine but also for the service. This is the legacy now being taken over by Sarah Leuwer.

For the 28-year-old this is a significant move. She takes on responsibility for one of the top gourmet addresses in Saxony. 

Sarah Leuwer trained with us in the Bülow Residenz and for several years thereafter she was at the Kempinski Taschenbergpalais. She returned to the Bülow Hotels as Bistro manager in 2014. With her appointment as Restaurant manager, there has now been a change of generations in the front of the house as well. Benjamin Biedlingmaier, who is one of Germany's youngest starred chefs, has already been at work in the kitchen since 2013.
