Aromatic winter


When it starts getting colder outside, food is all about comfort. It’s a time for cosy evenings around the fire and hearty meals. Ambassadors of good taste can be found all over, whether in the Harz mountains or on the North Sea coastline.

Eating kale with friends after a winter walk or going on a kale tour is a popular custom in the Oldenburg area. Kale has become increasingly popular, and is now seen as a superfood all over the world. Even in North America, people cast their eye on this speciality some time ago.

It’s particularly in the colder months that Lower Saxony’s cuisine comes into its own. There’s a whole lot of baking going on! Whether Stutenkerle pastry men (made from sweet leavened dough), Heidesand biscuits (browned butter shortbread), Eichsfelder Christmas stollen or Hildesheimer pumpernickel – there’s something to suit every palate.

Lower Saxony offers delicious, traditional dishes and products all year round.

These first-class ingredients will steal your heart away – just enjoy them, and let your taste buds choose your next destination.
