Description Conference Center

LORA is a contemporary, high-quality gastronomy concept with a restaurant, bar and take-away service in the lavishly restored and landmarked nine-metre-high waiting rooms of the old French railway station. The food concept was created by Pascal Schmutz – an established gourmet chef who has been awarded 16 GaultMillau points.

At the 15-metre-long bar, experienced bartenders mix fabulous drinks from the creative cocktail menu – best enjoyed under the seven-metre-high trees, surrounded by plants and designer furniture.
