Oh, that lovely smell… In the organic bakery at the foot of the cathedral of Erfurt the dough is already prepared. Now it's time to get your hands on the rolling pins and biscuit cutters!

Christmas biscuits from organic farming in Thuringia

While the biscuits start to scent in the oven, there is a lot to find out about organic farming in Thuringia. Where does the cereal grow? What does the organic farmer do differently? Why is wholemeal so healthy?  

Of course, the self-made biscuits may be taken home – or nibbled on the spot.

Groups, clubs, or companies wishing to organise their Christmas parties or other cozy get-togethers at the bakery are warmly welcome, too.

Under the motto "Culture in the bakery", the organic bakery changes into a Christmassy stage during weekday evenings, inviting to music, Tango, lectures, theatre, film and discussion.
