European XFEL's company restaurant, BeamStop, is open for employees, guests and users of the facility. For local residents and external guests the Restaurant is unfortunately closed until the COVID 19 pandemy subsides. It is adjacent to the facility's headquarters building, about 150 m from the main entry gate.

BeamStop offers lunch Monday through Friday 11:30–14:00. Each day, two options for lunch are provided, including at least one vegan or vegetarian meal, as well as sides, soups, and  salads.

Alongside the lunchtime offerings, BeamStop's Coffee Bar offers breakfast in the morning, sandwiches, sweets and savoury baked goods, and hot and cold drinks daily 7:00–15:00. In summer freshly made smoothies are also offered. For all payments at BeamStop please top up your Desy or EuXFEL access badge with money by using cash, credit cards or Maestro at the machines next to the entrance. After choosing your meal or drinks simply pay cashless at the cashier, by just putting your card on the reader. Guest payment cards are available for a little deposit at the payment machines, if you are not holding an access badge.

External visitors are asked not to enter the campus until further notice.

The European XFEL merchandise collection comprising sweatshirts, T-shirts for adults and kids, coffee mugs, umbrellas,  lunchboxes, our very own campus-produced honey and other items is also available for purchase at  BeamStop.

This week's menu is below. Guten Appetit!

Due to the actual regulations, there is only limited seating space available inside and outside the restaurant. 

Please cover your mouth and nose until seated.

As a result of the lower amount of employees on the campus there will be only two dishes offered.
