Gourmet Region Spreewald

The Spreewald is a real region of pleasure, because you won't find so many regional specialities that are only available in one region again so quickly! The"Original Spreewälder Gurken" (original Spreewald gherkins) and fresh horseradish, full-bodied nutty linseed oil and yeast pancakes made according to a traditional recipe are just some of the regional delicacies that will tantalise your palate.

Traditional recipes from the classic Spreewald home cooking, modern dishes and refined preparations with that little bit extra, you can find a little bit of everything in the Spreewald dishes. In other words, everything your heart and palate desire.

The Spreewald gourmet region stands out above all for its gourmet ambassadors and shines with true masters of their trade. Like at the Speisenkammer in Burg. There, guests can experience the creations of Marco Giedow - Brandenburg's master chef in 2011 and 2015. Having become acquainted with many cultures, people and cuisine styles, but also with his close ties to his homeland, his dishes are true all-rounders and many different influences make his specialities a special journey of enjoyment.

Another pleasure ambassador is Jörg Thiele. Awarded 13 Gault & Millau points in 2004, finalist of the TV format "The Taste" in 2016 and winner as head chef in the TV show "Mein Lokal, dein Lokal" in 2021, he ensures that the Spreewald is literally on everyone's lips.

When it comes to sweets, René Klinkmüller from the Klinkmüller bakery and confectionery is no match for anyone. He works authentically and with great attention to detail. For years, the bakery and confectionery has held the title of "Best Public Stollen in South Brandenburg". So if you're in the mood for something sweet, you should definitely take a detour to Luckau.

Connected to the regional roots and at the same time keen to experiment, smart and with an individual signature - that's how you can describe the Spreewald cuisine, which whets your appetite and makes you hungry for more.
