Mensa am Turm

Every day you can choose from three menus with various side dishes in our canteen at the tower. On Monday and Friday, there is also a stew. Every day, we also offer a vegan menu and a salad buffet.

Regional concept

Since 2013, "Is(s)t regional" has been the motto in the canteen at the tower. The food and beverage offer consist of regional and seasonal products that stand for freshness, short transport routes, a trustworthy production and the strengthening of the local economy. The menus that kitchen manager Markus Lanze puts together offer our guests menus made from high-quality local food combined with artisan culinary skills.

However, we cannot obtain all food from the region. Nevertheless, we do not want to do without tofu, various types of fish, fruit and drinks, as well as ice cream.

Architecturally, something special

The canteen is located in the former wash hall of the University of Göttingen. The "tower room" makes the canteen at the tower with its striking architecture something very special. Steam escaped from the tower when it was still functioning as the exhaust air tower of the university laundry. The current tower room was only made useable in 1994, after the missing floor had been installed. Under the tower are still underground catacombs, through which in former times oxygen flowed, to supply these to the burner in the foot of the tower. The tower also forms a beautiful connection to inner-city fauna: kestrels have been nesting on the tower for 21 years.
