At the 9th Berliner Kellnerlauf (Service Staff Race) at the Kranzler Eck, the Berlin state champions of the hotel and restaurant trade were determined in seven categories on the Sunday shopping day. Participation in the race was once again very high despite the less than ideal weather conditions. A total of 66 waitresses and waiters, barkeepers, cooks, bellhops and beer delivery drivers competed in the 400-meter circuit down the Ku’damm and were watched live and celebrated by about 600 spectators.
Some of the previous year’s winners were able to defend their title and can once again call themselves the Berlin champions of the hotel and restaurant trade. One of them is serial winner Efstathios Stathiadis who won the bellhop race for the fourth time in a row and was the luck recipient of € 300 in prize money.
Juror and TV chef Ralf Zacherl was the special guest once again, cheering on his colleagues and rating their desserts.
We look forward to the anniversary edition in 2020, celebrating 20 years of the Kranzler Eck and 10 years of the Kellnerlauf.
