We had our lunch here. The location is lovely and the food was really good. It had a woolens shop, a wine shop which offers tasting as well, a really nice cafe and an ice cream parlour. Good place to take a break at Belnheim after visiting all the vineyards!

What a fantastic view of the ranges as you sit in a outside well sheltered seat. The food is scrumptious and decant dent.. but why not you are half way to heaven in these surrounding both food and relaxing. Another world.

We enjoyed lunch so much at the cafe, we started stopping off each morning on our way exploring the region. Not only is the food excellent, the location is stunning and with wonderful things for children to do. The service from the staff was exceptional each time and they happily cater for dietary requirements. Highly recommended!

Four hectares shopping centre with a dramatic background scenery and a picturesque lake, it's a place for the whole family. Children's area and nice Café make it ideal for a lunch break... More

Heaps of thing for the kids to do, including chess, rugby balls, pétanque and an under 5 playground. The... More

This stop has a small number of shops and food options available including a patchwork shop and wine tasting options. There are toilets available too which makes it a great stop as you are travelling around the wine district. this is a fully accessible location with outside areas for the kids to burn some energy.
