TWO ITEMS CONNECTED
TO OTTO HORCHER,
PROPRIETOR OF THE MOST
FAMOUS NAZI RESTAURANTS
IN BERLIN AND MADRID
Readers of history will recognize the name Horcher. Otto Horcher, a native of Wien (Vienna), operated one of the most successful restaurants in the capital of the Großdeutschland of Adolf Hitler. It was popular with well-off Berliners, the cream of the Nazi Party and high-ranking military personnel. Horcher’s restaurant also catered meals for events at Hermann Göring’s country estate Carinhall. As rationing threatened the existence of all public restaurants in Berlin, the Luftwaffe took the place over and thereby precluded its closing. Otto Horcher took the opportunity in 1943 to move to Madrid, Spain where he started another gourmet restaurant. Restaurant Horcher in Madrid was known for years as one of the best dining rooms in the city and famous Nazi commando Otto Skorzeny was a daily visitor following the war.
In David Irvings book Göring, the author says that all of Horchers key staff were exempted from the military draft on orders from the Reichsmarschall, and the restaurant was in general exempted from the Total War decree of Dr. Joseph Goebbels.
