Culinary delight

Chestnuts, known as “Keschde” in local dialect, are the special ingredient in a local special version of a rather traditional delicacy: the “Saumagen” dish that used to be Helmut Kohl’s favourite meal. We’ll offer your palate quite a bit of contrast, because this is what also characterizes the region: You’ll get Handkäs’ cheese from Heppenheim, Grünkern grain from the Odenwälder Freilandmuseum museum and chocolates made behind the thick walls of the fortress on Dilsberg mountain. You’ll get top-quality wines produced in the region’s four wine-growing areas and Camembert from the Kirchenkäserei cheese dairy in Sindolsheim that brings together people just as much as milk, rennet and salt.
