“Cafė Leitz.” has opened

Wetzlar has a new café.  It is located at Leitz Park and is appropriately called “Cafė Leitz.”  It is greeting its guests all in white.  It offers 52 tables inside and 46 outside with a view of the fountain and the administrative building of the Leica Camera AG.  Manager Matthias Emmer of the firm Aramark and his team are looking out for the guests.  They offer home made cakes and baked goods, chocolates and truffles as well as soups and salads.  In addition there are freshly made sandwiches in the design of a camera.  Café Leitz is open Monday through Friday from 10 to 7.  It can be hired for private parties.  Also open to the public is the “Casino” in the main building of Leica.  There you can order Breakfast starting at 7:30 and lunch from 11:45 to 1:30, Monday through Friday.  Closing time is 3:30.  (Phone 06441-2080113)


  1. What's next, Hotel Leitz?

  2. Why the sarcasm? For years Leica has provided their employees with a restaurant. The fact thst these new ones are open to the public should be applauded. Leitz Park is a new development and as far as I know, there are no other restaurants in the area. This way they not only serve their own staff but also give employees from other companies the opportunity to take advantage of their facilities.
