While my mom and Grandma were here last week, we made sure to get our fill of all three!
Beer is kind of an obvious choice while visiting Germany. But hey, stereotypes and cliches become stereotypes and cliches for a reason, right?
We tried Kölsch while in Cologne and some Altbier while in Düsseldorf. Beer became a staple of all our restaurant experiences.
I also made them expand their wurst repertoire and try currywurst! I'd say it was a success.
Finally there were all the bakeries. Trust me when I say we couldn't make a day without our trips to the bakery. I know bakery isn't really up there on the list of German stereotypes with beer and bratwurst. But for anyone who's spent any length of time in this country will tell you that there is nothing anywhere that compares to a German bakery.
We never came home without our daily picks from the bakery. By the end, our collection was a little out of control, but it was all just so delicious!
