MAXBURG, Brussels

Andrea Hauptmann, a German national, took over the 'Maxburg', an iconic German restaurant in the heart of the Brussels European quarter (and one of the very few German restaurants in Brussels) around 10 years ago.

However, this culinary institution has been serving excellent schnitzels and other tasty German specialities for more than 30 years!

But not just the food, the beers (namely the Bitburger, Kölsch, König Pilsner et Weissbierand) the wine are German here. The wooden hut-like place itself seems to have been pulled from a genuine German town too.

Apart from schnitzels, which are prepared in more than 20 different ways, the place is famous for dishes such as the stuffed roulade of beef, the soups (starters), charcuterie, pasta with Swiss cheese and onions, smoked pork with sauerkraut (choucroute), and jambonneau.

The place also offers more seasonal preparations such as white aspargus and game, and mushrooms such as chanterelle.

Maxburg has become a very popular, informal and international meeting point for all kind of people.

It is said that Colin Powell, who does not eat pork, had lunch in the Maxburg once and that he ordered a veal schnitzel, not a pork schnitzel, so there is always an alternative for those not eating pork in this such special restaurant.
