Regional specialities

Each region has its own culinary specialities, traditional dishes that have been passed down through the centuries. Hearty or light, sweet or savoury.

Pfälzer Saumagen is pig's stomach stuffed with pork, Bratwurst sausage and potatoes. Other typical ingredients include eggs, carrots and seasoning including marjoram and nutmeg. It is served with sauerkraut and mashed potatoes.

The hearty Westerwäld Dippekuchen is a potato cake with onion and meat, served with apple sauce.

Zwiebelkuchen (onion tart) from the Moselle is eaten with Federweisser – new wine that has only just begun to ferment.

Rhineland-Palatinate and wine go hand-in-hand. No other part of Germany is so closely associated with the nectar of the gods as Rhineland-Palatinate. Ahr, Middle Rhine, Nahe, Moselle-Saar-Ruwer, Rheinhessen and Rheinpfalz are the six wine-growing areas within the state of Rhineland-Palatinate.
