"why do you actually mean Hase & Igel (rabbit + hedgehog) ?"
We often hear this question....
Here's the answer:
The thinking minds were always one step ahead of each other in the early stages of the restaurant's creation. Like the rabbit and the hedgehog, therefore it ran under this working name. When it came to the actual name search, there was no agreement.
After a few back and forth, they said, "Let's call it Hase&Hedgehog." So much for finding names :-)
Norman Wegner has completed a classic cooking career.
He underwent the training in the Steigenberger Flagship at the time
"Gästehaus Petersberg" in Königswinter, and finished it as the second best of the entire Rhine-Sieg-Kreis.
Subsequently, stations in Bonn and Berlin followed. He gained experience in the best restaurants in the capital from the young chef to the deputy chef.
Here he not only got to know the best products in the best possible quality, but also the best possible preparation. Always with the aim of "producing the best taste".
In 2008, at the age of 26, Baden Baden was the first to do so. Kitchen point.
After 4 successful years, he went on to the Rheingau where he took over the culinary responsibility for a 5-star hotel.
A new culinary concept was developed and implemented in close cooperation with the hotel management.
A good-sized restaurant for tourists, hikers and anyone who wanted to enjoy in a relaxed atmosphere was created, as well as a "fine dining" restaurant with a more exclusive cuisine.
Almost four years later, it took him to Düsseldorf - to Hase & Igel.
Since November 2015, he and his team have been committed to preparing meals in the best possible way so that our guests can go home happily.
In May 2022, he took over the management of the kitchen as well as the management, a new task with many new challenges which he is pleased to face.
