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

The authenticity of an Alsatian Inn

From its native region, the Auberge de l'Ill has graceful frescoes painted on its exterior facades and an entrance that looks like a tobacco drying house.
From the land of Alsace the Auberge de l'Ill draws family spirit and conviviality; from its terroir it offers wonderful products and generous cuisine.

In 1952 began the starred history of the Auberge de l'Ill. Since then the story of the restaurant is written day after day.

To Jean-Pierre Haeberlin and his famous watercolours and Paul Haberlin succeded Marc and Danielle both supported by their children, all animated by the same love of the profession.

A wonderful gourmet cuisine

The cuisine of the Auberge de l’Ill reflects the image of the family which is perpetuated accross generations: from Paul Haeberlin with his famous frogs' legs' mousseline and his Haeberlin peach, to his son Marc who makes the perfect alliance between classic and contemporary dishes through his creations.

The generosity, the search of the right taste, the elegance of the presentation of the dishes as well as the excellence at the service of the guests are always present.

A dreamlike natural setting

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

The river is close by
… Follow the stream of the water

Salle à manger

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.


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

Everything here plays 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. 

Pièce Alsacienne

The Ried landscape is made into a work of art.

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. 


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

Everything here suggests elegant charm. 

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

The dream isn’t far! 

The Pigeonnier can be booked for private events.
