Hotel info

Christine and Jan Philip welcome you

The Flair Hotel Zur Eiche with Henry’s restaurant has been in the family’s possession since 1850. Christine and Jan Philip took over the hotel in early 2017. Since then, they have been managing the hotel and restaurant where the past meets meets the present with great success. They have kept on to some things from the past, such as the great frescoes and the long-established table for regulars in the restaurant, yet everything has a modern twist. The two have successfully navigated the balancing act between tradition and modernity. Christine manages the hotel and ensures her guests enjoy a wonderful stay in Nordheide, while Jan Philip expresses his creativity as the chef in the affiliated Henry’s Restaurant. This is named after the great-grandfather who once founded the business.

When the heath blooms, there is no more beautiful place. Enjoy the time out at the gates of the metropolis of Hamburg.

Henry’s Restaurant – a highlight in Nordheide

Henry's Restaurant dessertIn June 2019, chef and owner Jan Philip won the “Mein Lokal Dein Lokal” TV programme – click here to watch it.

In Henry’s Restaurant we offer home-made dishes as well as lots of produce from the region. Heidekartoffeln from Farmer Till from Heidenau, blood sausage from butcher Wiese from Buchholz, meat and fish come directly from the Hamburg metropolitan region while the famous Odefey chicken comes from the Heath. In Henry’s Restaurant you can enjoy German-Mediterranean cuisine. The seasonal produce that achieve speciality status thanks to their careful preparation and fresh spices are turned into healthy dining creations. Traditional dishes such as home-made Sauerfleisch [pickled pork in aspic] and the local blood sausage cannot be omitted from the menu in the Heath. All dishes are labelled for specialised diets. Henry’s is suitable for breakfast, lunch and evening meals as well as brunch, celebrations and conferences.

In the photo you see the hotel’s signature dessert: the “Woodland Walk” with green moss made of sponge mixture, a toadstool made of pannacotta and fresh wild berries. Have fun and come and visit us!

Lüneburg Heath

200 years ago, the characteristic heathlands stretched far over large parts of northern Germany. The cultural landscape that was formed by overgrazing in the Neolithic age is today kept open for grazing for heathland sheep – a traditional, native breed of sheep. In the natural parks of the heathland, a unique world of flora and fauna has developed which can be preserved and seen at its best in August and September in particular. Wonderful cycling and hiking trails take you to and through Lüneburg Heath. With 14 leisure parks, the comprehensive activity programme in the region is also interesting for families.
