Young couple at a wine tasting in the wine grower's cellar

Harz brook trout is a popular dish. Its most delicious version is Harz-style trout with juniper, coriander and cognac. If this is not to your taste, try a freshly-caught whitefish from Lake Arendsee. The taste of its firm flesh will linger in your memory.

Vines are cultivated on more than 600 hectares in Saxony-Anhalt. Red and white wine has been produced in the Saale-Unstrut region since the year 998 and the main grape variety grown is Müller-Thurgau.

The tradition of baking the Salzwedel "tree cake" on a spit before an open fire goes back to at least 1682. This delicious cake is made in layers on a horizontal wooden roller which is slowly turned over an open fire.
