Food and Drink


Embark upon a voyage of discovery through the culinary regions of Lower Saxony and enjoy a variety of typical German food. All freshly harvested and prepared. Whether you want plaice and North Sea crabs in spring on the coast, fresh German asparagus and strawberries throughout Lower Saxony, apples and cherries from the Altes Land region in summer or German cabbage and Pinkel sausage in the colder months - indulgence is always in season in Lower Saxony.

Food and drink is a cultural asset in Lower Saxony – from the tea-drinking tradition in the North and the beer culture and Bock beer that originated from the Weserbergland (Weser Uplands), to dairy specialities and products from Lüneburger Heide, Harz and the North Sea. In Lower Saxony, you can sample traditional German food not only in the many hotels and cafés but also on visits and tours. Visit weekly markets and farm shops to take some of the culinary delights home with you. Events such as food truck festivals, asparagus festivals and farmers’ markets provide some very special culinary experiences. But there is more to discover than just the regional food culture here in Lower Saxony. Lower Saxony’s top chefs, awarded stars by the Michelin Guide and Gault Millau, produce outstanding gourmet cuisine - that is also typical Lower Saxony.

Fall in love with Lower Saxony’s products and specialities!
