Land Thüringen Local Customs

  • Thuringian dumplings

    It's another special food of our region. To "create" them needs knowledge. Made out of potatoes. Grated poor potatoes and cooked mashed potatoes together in a special mix. Also important which time you can mix both. Then you can form the dumplings and do inside boiling water. Only light boiling!Really special, but delicious.In former times that...

  • Thuringian people

    What should I say about local customs of my home? That they split their potatoes with forks like all Germans do? (smile) I think it is the place to write a little about Thuringian people in principle. My opinion changed during last six years. I lived in some different places of Thuringia. In the southeast region near wonderful Bleichloch water...

  • Soljanka

  • Easter Fire

    It´s a regional custom, the fires at Easter time. But like I got as information now some other German places know it, too. Fire means a bit religious, but more I heared it would have the sense to drive out the bad spirits of winter. Nearly all villages or towns have their own regional big Easter fire. It is always fun, connected with a celebration.

I not. ;-) Tabarz had the probably most famous tester short time ago. The King of Sweden was on a visit at the Duke of Coburg-Gotha. The nobility goes...

  • Easter

    I liked a lot the Easter customs in the small villages. People create rabbits and other things. This one is in Allendorg near Schwarzburg, as far as I remember.

  • Thueringer Bratwurst

    I wondered so much. From my hometown Mannheim I'm used, that people eat Brezels. But in Thueringen, there are no Brezels, but everywhere Thueringer Bratwurst.

  • cake

    I don't know how to translate, in german it is called Blechkuchen or Rahmblechkuchen. The lady in the bakery in Schmalkalden called it "Matschekuchen". You get it with fruits, with cheese, with nuts, just try it. It's fantastic!
