Culinary Germany

German asparagus; Käflein, Achim
German food, beer and wine are a class of their own. One of 300 healthy kinds of bread and fine pastries, made famous by German bakers, await you for breakfast or at snack time. The true connoisseur praises the German wine, some dry and some sweeter, but always smooth and filigree like nowhere else in the world. Natural mineral water bubbles from 550 sources. Undoubtedly, before a drop of wine or water moistens the tongue, your eyes already indulge in the pleasures of the festive table.

World-famous German beer is an integral part of the country's history and culture. Over 1,200 breweries, from the North Sea to the Alps, produce 5,000 different kinds of beer. A German meal is also as versatile as the beer. Whether fresh fish from the traditional Hamburg fish market, or potatoes - served either boiled, stewed in soups or as potato-pancake - nothing more could be missing from a menu. However, what would Germany be without Sauerkraut and, of course, Sausage - with plenty of mustard - prepared plain-boiled, boiled with spices, raw or as Bratwurst?

And a schnapps is the finish of a good and rich meal. You will see...German food and drinks hold the body and soul together.
