Culinary city tours: “Red beer and Blaue Zipfel”

The Nuremberg Tourism Association offers a culinary tour of the city every Saturday evening under the title “Red Beer and Blaue Zipfel.” How did the German Bratwurst get its name and what is so special about the Nuremberg gingerbread (Lebkuchen)?

For how long have Nuremberg’s female cooks known ravioli and how much meat did the citizens of Nuremberg used to eat?

What does "devil kitchen” mean and what has the planner of the English Garden to do with the food in Nuremberg? These and other questions about the cooking pot will be answered during the course of these tours. Your senses will also have their own experience of this topic because of the food samples which are handed out along the route.
