Establishing a picnic as a way of life in the region and at the same time helping the gastronomy - that is the aim of the regional management organization Münsterland eV For this, the association for restaurateurs in the Münsterland now offers free advice, support and - very practical - picnic boxes.
“Creative concepts are currently required to help our gastronomy. Picnic is a chance for the highly frequented restaurateurs, in particular, to cater for additional guests, ”says Michael Kösters, General Representative at Münsterland eV“ Picnic is individual, decentralized and scores points in corona times with the option of keeping a lot of distance. ”
At today's press conference in Haltern am See, restaurateur Christian Zehren showed how it can be done. Together with his partner Andy Kleimann, he runs the “cabin” and the “galley” on the Haltern reservoir. He presented his picnic offer for the perfect Münsterland summer in the Münsterland picnic boxes of the Münsterland eV In total, he offers four delicious picnics:
Picnic box “Steverglück”, including Pinkus special, rolls, sausage, goat cheese, egg liqueur, fruit and men's cream. The “Pottkieker” with craft beer from the region, currywurst, pretzels and men's cream, the “Reservoir Round” with sparkling wine, salmon and crab rolls, fruit and men's cream and the “Lüttenpicknick” for children with rolls, bockwurst and a sweet surprise.
The Münsterland eV and the Haltern am See city agency motivated him for this culinary holiday.
"The restaurant offers the ideal conditions, it is already heavily frequented on weekends and has the perfect backdrop with the Haltern reservoir," says Andrea Böing from the Haltern am See city agency. “As a municipality, we are very interested in picnics, it is an opportunity for our restaurateurs.”
Christian Zehren adds: “For me it is an attractive additional business. In addition, I can spoil my guests with a picnic and offer them something new. I can only recommend the topic to my gastronomy colleagues. ”
Now imitators are wanted! The specific offer of the Münsterland eV: Restaurateurs in the Münsterland who permanently offer a picnic can order the regionally produced boxes in the Münsterland design free of charge from the Münsterland eV (while stocks last). The association also advises on product development, presentation and sales and supports the marketing of the offer.
"Picnic is more than just food on the blanket," says Melanie Schlüters, project manager for Picnic³ at Münsterland eV "It's about THE GOOD LIFE and an original holiday moment for locals, guests and day trippers. Picnic enhances every touristic offer, be it a bike tour, a riding excursion or a visit to the museum in the castle. ”
In addition to gastronomy in Haltern am See, Göckes Haus und Garten in Wettringen, the Romantikhotel Hof zur Linde in Münster, Burg Hülshoff in Havixbeck, the Canu Camp and Hof Grothues-Potthoff in Senden also offer picnics and the High Tea Café des Convent Bentlage suitable from the day of the picnic on June 18 to June 21.
