L’Auberge de l’Ill, Three Michelin star gourmet restaurant in Illhaeusern, near Colmar

The authenticity of an Alsatian Inn

From its terroir, it gifts wonderful produce and generous cuisine.

L’Auberge de l’Ill is a restaurant to visit across the change of the seasons, the years, and its long history.

A 3-Michelin star restaurant for 50 years

Since then, the story has been written every day. Founders Jean-Pierre (famous for his watercolours of the area) and Paul Haeberlin were succeeded by their children Marc and Danielle, who were driven by the same love of the profession, of the location and of welcoming guests.

A wonderful, gourmet cuisine

The kitchen of the L’Auberge de l’Ill reflects the image of the family.

It comes down through the generations.

From Paul Haeberlin it takes tradition, with his famous mousseline of frog’s legs and his Haeberlin fish. From his son Marc, the perfect alliance of classic and contemporary, through his creations... And then there is the generosity, the search for the right taste, for the elegance of presentation, and the excellence of a 3-Michelin star restaurant.

The Chef today

Marc Haeberlin embodies the richness and soul of the kitchen at L’Auberge de l’Ill. Hard work, humility, passion and pleasure have driven the Chef ever since he embarked on this profession.

A genuine pleasure that imbues the finesse of the gourmet cuisine with the flavour of joy that makes people happy.

Marc Haeberlin makes excellence rhyme with sharing.

The service at the heart of the stars

For Danielle Baumann Haeberlin, service is present at every moment, and through each member of the great family of L’Auberge de l’Ill who receives you.

A watchful eye, a genuine smile, an attentive and discreet ear... The excellence of 3-Michelin star service goes wonderfully with the spirit of the house.

A dreamlike natural setting

L’Auberge de l’Ill...
an ode to the poetry of nature!

The river is close by
… Follow the undulating course of the water

The Dining Room

Light and fluttering, origami butterflies and hummingbirds give life to the magnificent tapestry. .

Velvet, hessian, flannel, Hermès printed fabrics make up this dreamlike landscape in patchwork with extra sophistication, all underlined with copper strips to emphasise the eternal power of nature.

The Veranda

Opening out fully onto the garden and the Ill, the Dining Room has a bright atmosphere with a delicate softness.

Everything here is a play on transparency and reflections. The Murano glass screen plays with the decoration. On the ceiling, giant hammered stainless steel panels act like mirrors, reflecting the trees in the garden and the river nearby.

Everything is alive. Everything is working in harmony with nature. 

The Alsatian room

The Ried landscape is made into a work of art here.

Rushes and reeds, storks and herons, lakes and deep forests become the patterns for the superb marquetry which decorates the room.

A unique technical skill which underlines the powerful and moving poetic beauty. 

The Dovecote

From the tall frame to the openwork trellises and panels, The Dovecote is a protective and warm wooden oasis.

Everything here suggests elegant charm. The large chimney like the hearths of yesteryear, the bronze geese, good food…

A traditional atmosphere revisited with the subtle combination of vertical and horizontal lines and the suspension of blown glass: a bundle of wood with a lightness like no other.

The dream isn’t far from reach! 

The Dovecote can be booked for private events.
