Culinary art at its best



The creative force behind the Lufthansa First Class menus in September and October is to be found in the 2-Michelin-starred kitchen of the Villa Rothschild Kempinski in idyllic Königstein. Behind the culinary highlights which we will be serving you on board this autumn stands no less a figure than top chef Christian Eckhardt.


Christian Eckhardt is 32 years old and was born in Freiburg im Breisgau. Since March this year he has been the chef of a first-class team who he trusts implicitly and with whom he has already worked at the Villa Rothschild for a long time. His extensive knowledge, picked up from working with 3-Michelin-starred chefs, ensures he can delight the hotel’s sophisticated guests with his creative dishes.

You can enjoy his culinary skill for yourself on Lufthansa flights from Germany.
