One thing you might not know about Germans is that they love bread. With over 3.000 different types of German bread, people are really spoilt for choice in the federal republic.

Germany and its love of bread

When you think of German food, your mind will probably conjure up images of Bratwurst, pretzels and Schnitzel. If you’ve ever visited Germany before, then your mouth might start watering at some of the country’s more traditional foods like Spätzle, Sauerkraut or Flammkuchen.
