Fresh air gives you an appetite

Delicious potato pancakes, sliced green beans or panhas (local black pudding), all typical examples of hearty Bergisch cuisine. They impress with grandma’s recipes, modern and high-quality, prepared with local products. Many rustic farm and guesthouses, usually in the lovely ambiance of a timer-framed house, serve local dishes and promise hearty treats.
The “Bergische Kaffeetafel” of sweet and savoury dishes with coffee from the “Dröppelmina” (old-fashioned coffee pot) is particularly popular. You often end up sitting together in comfort for many hours.
The Bergisch region also offers culinary delights at the highest level. Several Michelin star restaurants, ambitious chefs de cuisine and unusual speciality restaurants entice with imaginative creations in fine ambiances.
