“I will work with all my skill and passion to astonish my guests and partners time and time again”

“A cook who has reinvented himself.”

Gourmetkritik.de, 19.12.2013

“If, like Christian Jürgens, you keep fit by jogging and skiing, you also develop sporting ambitions in the kitchen. He has adopted the tactic of counter-pressing from his favourite club Borussia Dortmund, which does not allow any standstill and always strives forwards with a certain creative aggressiveness. Which means that this year again, he is up there playing ball with the best in Germany…”

Gault Millau, 2017

“Tegernsee acorns and stones. What sounds so banal can be extremely sophisticated, especially if it’s not what it seems.”

Falstaff/News: Auftakt zu den Nespresso Gourmetweeks, 2014

“The experts praise Christian Jürgens because he is incredibly creative – and yet down-to-earth. His speciality: to create something new and surprising from local ingredients and recipes.”

FIT FOR FUN, 13. November 2013

“At the same time the Westphalian is a follower of the, let’s call it, appearance and substance technique – a form of presentation that plays entertainingly with the expectations that the appearance of a dish awakens.”

Weltwoche, 1/2014

“Jürgens cooks with a burning heart and always has a sparkle in his eyes – it always has to be a blast.”

Der Feinschmecker, 19.12.2013

“Only a few chefs display such sensitivity. Finesse and taste are beyond doubt, the presentation is world class – this is creative modern cuisine à la Christian Jürgens! The service lives up to the same level: guests are taken care of very carefully and professionally.”

Guide Michelin, 2017

“One of the most startling moments of the last season was the announcement that Christian Jürgens was to leave the Tegernsee shortly – which fortunately turned out to be a hoax and let us breathe a sigh of relief. The visits to the picturesquely situated Überfahrt at the Tegernsee are some of the absolute highlights every year. This is due to the enormous quality of what is offered, but above all to the style of the person in charge, who knows how to combine catchy, striking ideas and finely differentiated finesse like almost no other.”

Gusto, 2017
