The Alsatian Winstub right in the center of La Petite France.
Dive into an exceptional charming place…
Magnificent half-timbered building from 1676, Le Lohkäs pulls its name of the activity of the tanners, particularly developed in this district of Strasbourg.
Indeed, the artisans used tanning plant, made up of oak and sweet chestnut tree barks. When the residue, which served to tan the leather, did not contain any tannin more, it was dried in old cheese molds and sold as combustible houses of Strasbourg. This product was called " lohkäs " and was sold by "Lohkästreppler". The ground of the restaurant is situated more low than the street because it served formerly as storage place.
The sign of the restaurant represents the emblem of the brewers, the star around the mold.
When you cross the door, you arrive in a beautiful Alsatian room which contains an old tiled stove which still warms the restaurant.
Let you disorient by tasting our delicious typical dishes served in a “Henri Loux” service on a tablecloth in " kelsch ".
On the first floor, you will find all the elements of the "Stube", the main room of the Alsatian house with its corner unit, in which we placed the valuables of the family.
Welcome to Le Lohkäs, and as we say in Alsace " A' Gueter! ".
