Traditional German cuisine
Wiener Schnitzel, Sauerkraut & Co. -
the diversity of German cuisine
German cuisine is particularly varied and hearty. Depending on the region, completely different dishes are prepared in Germany. German cuisine has only one thing in common: most dishes contain meat. Pork meat is used for more than half of the dishes. In addition to this, German cuisine is known for delicious side dishes such as potatoes, vegetables and cabbage. Abroad, German specialties are considered to be Wiener schnitzel, sauerkraut, roast pork and dumplings, but German home cooking has a lot more to offer. Equally popular: German bread and real German beer. You can also enjoy the richness of German cuisine at Backöfele in Würzburg. Stop by and experience traditional, cozy ambience with excellent German and Franconian specialties.

Specialties from south to north
While Swabia is known for spaetzle and gravy, and in Bavaria Leberkäse (liver loaf) and Weißwürste (white sausages) are considered staples, in northern Germany Kassler (smoked pork) and fish are served. Depending on the region, German cuisine differs significantly in its ingredients and preparation. The Backöfele in Würzburg invites you to discover this colorful variety.
From Franconian to Swabian
South German specialties
In southern Germany, delicious Bavarian as well as Swabian dishes await. Especially in the southwest there is so much to discover. While the cuisine in the outer part of the southwest is strongly reminiscent of the cooking habits of neighboring Alsace and spoils with tarte flambée and Schupfnudeln, in the southwest it is mainly saddle of venison and Saumagen that are eaten. Equally popular here is Dibbelabbes (Saarland). This is a potato pancake baked from grated potatoes and leeks and bacon. Typical Swabian dishes are especially spaetzle and Maultaschen. Especially spaetzle are served in the southwest in different variations and can be enjoyed as a side dish with an onion roast, in combination with lentils or as a main course in the form of cheese spaetzle.
