Culinary Experiences:



The variety of flavorful bratwursts reflects the variety of Franconian cities: In Coburg, brats are grilled over pine cones. In Ansbach, the brats are 12 to 18 cm long and a whopping 4 cm thick. In comparison, the Nuremberger bratwursts are only 7 to 9 cm long and skinny. The residents of Kulmbach like to eat theirs sandwiched between the halves of a crispy bun. So they call their brats “Eingezwickte”, which means something like “the pinched ones”. Anybody who loves Franconian cuisine needs to also sample a crispy “Schäufele”, a special pork roast.
