Wheat-rye bread

Landbrot, or country bread, is chewy and flavoursome; it was often baked in large loafs which were to last at least a week. Landbrot is a hearty rye/wheat mix bread with variable fractions of rye and wheat flour. The crust is often dark brown and it has a lighter and chewy crumb.

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.
