Last week, King Carl XVI Gustaf and Queen Silvia of Sweden asked for a table at German inn and pub Zum Gueldenen Stern but were turned away by owner Nadine Schellenberger, reports the AFP. Schellenberger was hosting a wedding and didn't have the space for Sweden's king and queen, though she did recommend another restaurant. She also didn't realize who exactly she was turning down. "I didn't recognise them. I mean without crowns and sceptres... I am just not up on royal families and I don't have time for glossy magazines," she told the AFP.
Zum Gueldenen Stern has existed in various forms since 1598. It was most recently renovated in 1982 and serves fish, game and vegetarian dishes. It offers a selection of exclusively German wines.
