Alsatian culture also integrates a few sweet treats. Kougelhopf, for instance, is a traditional pastry eaten for breakfast. There’s also a savoury version that’s great with an aperitif. The damson, blueberry or rhubarb tarts are also delicious. Christmas is the time to enjoy the famous berawecka fruitcake and “bredala”, an assortment of butter shortbread, cinnamon stars, aniseed biscuits, etc. In the Guebwiller region, our craft bakers and confectioners invite you to try their Alsace specialities and other local treats. Food-lovers take note!
