Culinary Niedersachsen

The culinary delights of Niedersachsen are as diverse as the regions themselves: country guest houses and fine gourmet restaurants attract their visitors with hearty curly kale and sausage, fine fish, deliciously fresh asparagus and much more. Every area has its specialities. Of course, close to the coast, fresh fish can be found on the plates, in the heath, meagre and sandy grounds are harvested, the river regions, on the other hand, live from fertile fields and juicy meadows. In the mountain region of the Harz, the venison and the clear lakes and streams provide an inspiration for the local hosts’ sauce pans.
