The story behind Eatrenalin

Eatrenalin is nothing short of the world's most exciting gastronomic experience; a restaurant of the future that appeals to all the senses and takes guests on fantastic journeys. This is the vision of Thomas Mack and Oliver Altherr.


The brilliant idea for Eatrenalin

During a visit to the Voletarium in Europa-Park, where you can fly over European countries, Oliver Altherr and Thomas Mack came up with the idea: Why not combine such a trip with unique cuisine that creates a complete experience, one that appeals to all the senses and arouses a wide range of emotions?
