Goose dinner in Frankfurt

Goose is part of many people's Christmas time! Especially in the classic variant with dumplings, chestnuts and red cabbage, the crispy roasted goose enjoys unbroken popularity. Therefore, many restaurants and bars offer special goose menus from November to Christmas. In doing so, one usually relies on tried and tested methods, but also tries to give the traditional dish a very special touch. There are numerous possibilities in Frankfurt to celebrate the traditional goose food as a couple or in a larger circle.

We have selected a few locations for you, where you can eat especially delicious goose - from the classic apple wine industry to upscale cuisine. There is definitely something for everyone!


OSCAR´s - Brasserie Moderne

In the Oscar`s at the Steigenberger Frankfurter Hof, Frankfurt Hof chef Philipp Henkes serves delicious goose creations: Traditionally the goose is filled with apples, chestnuts, onions or prunes. It is served with red cabbage, dumplings and a bound sauce from the gravy. On request, however, goose roasts can also be served in Alsatian style. This is prepared with bratwurst filling and sauerkraut. Also Swedish Martinsgans with Brussels sprouts and apple puree can be ordered.
