Spelt bread

In Germany, spelt loaves and rolls (Dinkelbrot) are widely available in bakeries as is spelt flour in supermarkets. It is similar in colour to light rye breads but usually with a slightly sweet and nutty flavour. Spelt biscuits, crackers and pretzels are also popular for quick and delicious snacks.

With more than 300 different kinds of bread Germany is a country with a globally-renowned bread culture. Germans just love eating rolls and bread made with lots of different grains: whether rye, wheat or spelt. German bread isn't only a side dish but a fully-fledged part of the menu. That explains why Germans also have their very own "Bread Day" every year on May, 5th.
