About Haerlin

Haerlin is the two Michelin star restaurant located inside the iconic Vier Jahreszeiten (Four Seasons) Hotel. This is a classic Hamburg place to go for celebrating special occasions. If you are part of the high society of Hamburg, you will have dinner here regularly. It has a fixed spot among the best-loved fine dining places in the city and a loyal following. It is the classic old school fancy, also with views of the Alster Lake.

The Haerlin dining room is plush with regal fine linens, fancy Nymphenburg porcelain sculptures and a floor-to-ceiling glass display cellar.

The hotel is a fabulous place to eat and drink!

Just across from Haerlin in the grand entrance is a fabulous very tiny cocktail bar complete with two stories and red leather. Perfect for an after-dinner martini.
