Brezel is a delicious soft pretzel. This delight is unforgettable when served fresh from the oven.

All this is made even tastier with sweet mustard on the side. Of course not to be forgotten are Bratwurst (small sausages) with Sauerkraut and wonderful potato salad.
There are also outstanding desserts of which Apfelstrudel is the most outstanding, with wonderfully thin layers of dough filled with apple Mousse or chunks of apple and served with a dollop of cream.
