As our time in Bavaria comes to an end, and we prepare for the heavenly culinary delights of Tuscany, we realized how much we actually enjoyed the cuisine of Southern Germany! We indulged (too much!) in delicious German chocolate and Kaiserschmarrn (pancakes cut in little slices & served with apple sauce), devoured dumplings in mushroom sauce, developed a thing for a Bavarian cheese spread called Obatzda, gained a few pounds by eating too much cheese spatzle and not to forget the famous Hefeweiss beers!

And of course we had countless pretzels (or ‘Brezn’, as it is called in German) which are available in all sizes and varieties at each and every bakery. You can get XXL pretzels, pretzel balls, croissant pretzels, even entire baguettes made of pretzel. They make ’em with salt, no salt, sesame seeds, even pumpkin seeds and fill them with chocolate, cover them in cheese and pineapple or cut them in half with an inch-thick layer of butter in the middle.

We made sure to try as many different kinds of pretzels as possible and we officially vote them our number one food of Bavaria!

    1. You’ll definitely go to Bavaria during your Europe trip, so don’t worry you’ll soon know right where it is! The pretzels are genius here, they make sandwiches, pizza, snacks, everything out of the pretzel dough, so definitely eat at least one while you’re here! 🙂

    1. It really IS the Texas of Germany! We missed pretzels so much and ate them nearly every day in Bavaria. They are so much better than the frozen Superpretzels in the States!

  1. I would have never thought of the pineapple and pretzel combination but it sure sounds good. So does the beer and an XXL pretzel!

    1. It’s like a Hawaiian pretzel – it’s flat with cheese and pineapple, and it’s delicious. You can also get those with Ham, but we’re veggies. We actually prefer the excuse to eat so much butter on the pretzels 🙂
