For the 15th time Publishing House Busche invited guests to the big BUSCHE GALA in Berlin. The evening also saw celebrations for the launch of the widely acclaimed Schlemmer Atlas 2013 Restaurant and Hotel Guide and the Schlummer Atlas 2013. The curtain to the gala was raised on 29 October in the luxurious Hotel Adlon Kempinski Berlin, with around 450 guests celebrating along with the 39 winners from top restaurants and hotels as well as show business.

In a glamorous atmosphere, RTL presenter and lifestyle expert Frauke Ludowig accompanied the guests through the evening, with the Hotel Adlon Kempinski Berlin also being honoured with the award of Hotel of the Year.

And the culinary industry did not leave the event empty handed either: 27 chefs were honoured with the prize 'Top Chef of 2013'. Another highlight was the honouring of Actor Mario Adorf as 'Bon Vivant of the Year 2012' [Genießer des Jahres 2013].

With exclusive backdrop and culinary highlights, the Winter Gardens and grand ballroom of the Hotel Adlon Kempinski were then the occasion for the Winner's Night. The celebrations and fun continued late into the night. The proceeds raised in the raffle by the Karlheinz Böhm 'Menschen für Menschen' Foundation of 10,315 Euros are to be donated to people in Ethiopia.
