Among the many delicious treats on the table over Christmas, Pfefferkuchen (also sometimes known as Lebkuchen) are one of the best-loved.
Filled or plain, with or without chocolate coating, this gingerbread-like speciality comes in the most varied of shapes, decorations and nuances of flavour. Its aroma of warm spice promises a truly extraordinary taste sensation, and is particularly hankered after during the Advent period.
The Pulsnitzer Pfefferkuchen has made its name as a Saxon speciality. At the various Pfefferkuchen bakeries in Pulsnitz, true masters and artists mould the most wonderful figures and imaginative decorations – here between the Pfefferkuchen hearts and carvings you will find the kind of fairy tale gingerbread houses that Hansel and Gretel also had trouble resisting.
