The central German cuisine
Each state in central Germany has its own specialities. The state of Saxony is especially known for its desserts, Saxony-Anhalt is the oldest beer in the world and Thuringia is particularly proud of its sausages. A very special dish from central Germany, which is known beyond the country’s borders, comes from Thuringia. We are of course talking about the famous Thuringian ‘Kloßer’ (dumplings). The potato dumplings are very popular in this country. For years now, a quality seal has been awarded to catering establishments who keep traditional Thuringian dumplings alive!
The most beautiful time to cycle in central Germany is from April until the end of September. The summer months are mostly dry and very warm, sometimes hot. Saxony is generally one of the coldest and most precipitous regions in Germany, Saxony-Anhalt rather warmer and Thuringia is one of the driest areas in the Federal Republic!
