Donautherme Ingolstadt

Project: Donautherme Ingolstadt
Category: Restaurant and Free Flow gastronomy
Where: Ingolstadt – Germany
Line: System 850
Partner: HoGaKa Profi, Nürnberg


At the Donautherme in Ingolstadt, there is something for everyone: those who prefer sport can work out in the wasserKRAFT Fitness while those who want to take it easy will find tranquillity in the thermal baths, followed by a soothing massage.  Energetic family time is also offered – the adventure pool promises fun and action for both the young and old.  The cuisine is also varied with free flow gastronomy in the adventure pool, the á la carte restaurant in the sauna world and the pool bar in the new thermal baths ensure moments of culinary pampering.

The requirement

  • The kitchen was to serve the three catering areas, daily from 11:30 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. At peak times, the Donautherme can accommodate up to 1,200 visitors.
  • The demands on the kitchen are high: The dishes in the Free Flow gastronomy range from fries to currywurst to chicken nuggets – and also serves the á la carte restaurant with salad variations, pasta dishes and steak plates. The cooking block was to meet the requirements of the diverse range of dishes on offer.
  • The cooking island should be as powerful as it is robust.

The solution

  • For maximum performance, the customer chose the System 850 line with a one-piece hygienic top.
  • The cooking block has two induction zones, 4 deep fryers, two electric chip scuttles for keeping the food warm and four griddle plates with smooth and grooved compound stainless steel plates.
  • The one-piece hygienic top of the modular cooking island ensures maximum cleanliness and easy cleaning.
  • The flexibility of the solution ensures that the various catering areas are optimally supplied with the respective range of dishes.
  • Thanks to its smooth surfaces, rounded edges and H3 substructures, the cooking island from Ambach is also a good choice for the Donautherme kitchen in terms of ease of cleaning and hygiene.
  • The planning and installation of the cooking island was carried out in close collaboration between Ambach and the kitchen planners from HoGaKa Profi, and the implementation went smoothly.
