  • Emstal's museum of old bakery ovens

    When we made it from Ferch to that little village of Emstal, the museum of old bakery ovens, Backofenmuseum, of back of the days, was closed. Yet those historic ovens built about 1870 which are placed outdoors right in the little village's center, were to be seen, and aroused our curiosity. Have never traveled through a town where in its center big...

Ferch Restaurants

  • Sweet, little place flies American flag

    Found this really tiny, cosy, sweet, little place by coincidence along some Bundesstrasse, a road leading either in or out of Ferch town. Ralle's Imbiß is pretty comfortable for (motor) bikers to stop by while on tour. It's an eating place that provids little snacks and selection of popcicles: That's what I took, yummy popcicle under southern flag....

  • Very idyllic, great food, great service

    This little restaurant, run by Kipping family so far I understand, is housed in a very beautiful, fisherman's look alike cottage with thached roof and a most lovely flower garden. Not just the restaurant & its outdoor tables are marvelous, the food is fantastic too, owners are very welcoming, and the waiter (maybe the son) provids great service,...

  • Very romantic and rustic

    We've had Matjes Filet, Victoria Barsch with potatoes, salad, and mineralwater to drink mixed with applejuice (called Apfelschorle). Food was ok not really wonderful but solid-ok like the German word "Hausmannkost" puts it. The location of this restaurant is quiet, and truly beautiful. Thought waiters are not that friendly but maybe they've been...


Ferch Local Customs

  • Thueringer Bratwurst

    That's another Imbiß, eating place that provids little snacks, THUERINGER BRATS to be exact! Yummy stuff definitively for those that like typical German sausages!! We passed by this Imbiß on the way from Werder to Ferch on Berliner Strasse corner Moosfenn Strasse.The various breeds of bratwurst can quickly confuse the uninitiated. There are many...

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Oh God, I ask not for easier tasks.

    I ask for stronger aptitudes and greater talents to meet any tasks which may come my way.

    Help me to help others so that their lives may be made easier and happier.

    Strengthen my confidence in my fellow men in spite of what they may do or say.

    Give me strength to live according to the Golden Rule, enthusiasm to inspire those around me,

    sympathy to help lighten the burdens of those who suffer,

    and a spirit of joy and gladness to share with others.

    Take a swim in Emstal lake

    by MD2nd Updated Apr 23, 2013

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    It's a non-guarded lake yet permission is given for ppl to swim there. Compared to other swimming places, this one is like paradise. Maybe locals won't be too happy if this treasure of nature will be known and out in the open - and there for getting perhaps touristy, perhaps not remaining neat, and natural any more. Forgive me, dear locals.
