Children's eco-bakery

The smell is just too good to resist ... the dough is already made, so all you've got to do is roll it out and get to work with the cookie cutters!

And while you wait for your Christmas biscuits to bake in the oven, you'll have a little time to find out about eco farming and the history of German Christmas biscuits (plätzchen) from the Thüringer Ökoherz eco farming association, whose poster shows the biscuit's journey from field to plate.

Well worth a visit, and of course you get to take your finished biscuits home with you – if they make it that far!

The bakery is also available for groups, companies, clubs etc. who want to bake together, drink glühwein and enjoy a Christmas party.
