Chef de Cuisine Sven Elverfeld has continually refined his modern European cuisine of the highest standards in our signature 3-star Michelin restaurant, Aqua. He often discovers an inspirational source of ideas in his Wolfsburg surroundings — the Autostadt, a place filled with contrasts. Visual aesthetics as well as a never-varying high quality characterize his creations and have earned him his most recent honors.
The award-winning Aqua opens into a private garden area, where a large bowl filled with water creates a quiet Zen-like atmosphere. The materials and surfaces in the restaurant's interior follow the theme of nature. Woven metal curtains are combined with mirrored walls, resulting in a diffused, shimmering effect that gives the space breadth with a subtle, aquatic element. A chandelier creates a distinct accent in the centre of the restaurant measuring two metres in diameter. The organically shaped glass elements are illuminated from the inside with fine glass fibres and awaken images of fantasy deep sea creatures. A round, bronze-coloured mirror creates a counterpoint on the ceiling, transforming the chandelier into a floating cloud.
