Yes, eating well in Germany happens easily. A couple of years ago we sampled fine cuisine and had a wonderful experience in Bad Mergentheim.
Then last year and this one we found ourselves spending a few cold February days days for work in a small town in Bavaria, Parsberg (located between Regensburg and Nuremberg).
Where you can’t miss the Hirschen Hotel
They do their own butchering – you can see their butcher and delicatessen shop on the left of the entrance – and even brew their own beer.
We are not great beer appreciators but we must say that on this occasion, in this below zero temperature, with this food, a few litres of sweetish, dense Weizenbier (beer with malted wheat – more than 50%) went through us very pleasantly.
There were, of course, the unmissable sausages and krauts and potatoes
But also other items on the menu
We said it was below zero, we needed calories to survive, so what better to finish than homemade apple fritters?
It’s so beautiful to eat traditional food cooked simply and properly and with care in the choice of materials, with flavours that tell a story and go far back in time.
There’s also great generosity at Hirschen, we haven’t told you about the enormous variety and quantities of pickles, nuts, seeds, jams, charcuterie, cheeses and of the wonderful teutonic breads, all available to the guest who goes for the buffet lunch or dinner or who takes breakfast.
Even coffee was almost OK: what more can we say?
