Franzbrötchen is a small sweet pastry made of yeast dough and filled with cinnamon & sugar. It is a specialty of the Hamburg cuisine and the Hamburgers - the residents of the city of Hamburg - love their franzbrötchens!

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.
