The Caroussel in the Relais & Châteaux Hotel Bülow Palais is considered THE culinary address in Dresden and has enjoyed top ranking among the country’s top restaurants for years. Here, Michelin star-chef Benjamin Biedlingmaier and his team offer a contemporary, fresh and seasonal cuisine with Mediterranean influence.
A new era begins with Head Chef Benjamin Biedlingmaier. He brings a breath of fresh air to the culinary flagship in the regional capital. He brings a passion for seafood from the island Sylt, ingeniously pairing this with his love of French and Mediterranean cuisine. His dishes are colourful, light and playful.
The delicate golden hues of the luxurious interiors create a friendly and warm ambiance that blends with gentle green tones. Comfortable chairs, chandeliers made from Dresden porcelain and light woods create a classically elegant atmosphere. To the restaurant belongs a winter garden, the light-filled heart of the hotel with a large glazed roof with ornaments. The seating capacity is for up to 35 guests.
Since three centuries Meissen Porcelain exists – tableware from which princes, kings and head of states used to dine and still do. The Caroussel is one of the first restaurants worldwide offering a complete service with the ‘White Gold of Saxony’. All plates, bowls and cups in various forms and sizes belong to the collection ‘Wellenspiel’ of the famous Meissen factory.

Head Chef Benjamin Biedlingmaier
Benjamin’s career started in Wiesensteig in the Swabian Alb, where Biedlingmaier’s parents run a traditional guesthouse dating back over 200 years. He was only 14 years old, yet already preparing steak diane with spätzle for the guests – just because he wanted to!
He trained at the Mercedes Lämmerbuckel hotel, perfecting his art at the Traube Tonbach hotel in Baiersbronn. He transferred to the Schlossgarten hotel in Stuttgart, the Mandarin Oriental in Munich and then to Schloss Velden hotel at Wörthersee. He became sous chef with the La Mer team at the Grand Spa Resort A-rosa on Sylt. His long-standing friend, Sebastian Zier, is head chef. Together they enjoyed some sensational successes: the first Michelin star awarded in their debut year, while the second star followed a year later.
The former 27 years old Benjamin Biedlingmaier confirms the Michelin star for the Caroussel as the youngest star chef in Saxony. He is awarded with 17 points by the Gault & Millau. He won the competition “Rising star of the year 2013” by the culinary magazine DER FEINSCHMECKER, which is a vote by the guests. He is “Top 50 cook 2015” (Schlemmer Atlas).
