Tips

  • JR56

    The historic old town of Meissen stretches out at the foot of the castle. The cobblestone streets, nicely reconstructed town houses from the Renaissance period, the late Gothic town hall, romantic inner courtyards, craft shops, rustic wine bars and the Frauenkirche are characteristic. The tower of the Frauenkirche encloses the first tunable porcelain carillon in the world.

    Many old houses and the cobblestone streets take you back in time. The restaurants offer a varied cuisine. Many small shops offer their goods for sale, take a look, everyone will find something here and not just kitsch.

    The Meißner Fummel is a pastry with a protected designation of origin from Meißen. It was first mentioned in a document in 1747, in which a pastry from the town of Meißen named Fommel was deposited. Fumbling is still sold in Meißen. (Wikipedia)

    A Saxon courier from the Elector of Saxony traveled regularly between Dresden and Meißen. The courier liked to take a sip
    of the well-known and famous Meißner wine, which then got bad for him in the saddle of his horse. The elector then ordered the bakers' guild of Meissen to make fragile baked goods, which the courier had to show the elector in full after his visit to Meissen. That's why you're trying to get a fumble all the way home. Then you can't be said to have enjoyed too much of the Meißner wine.

    Please do not expect too much from this "fumble". Rather, it's the story behind it. In terms of taste, the Meißner Fummel is not a highlight.
    Tip: It's best to smash the thing in the bag at home. Otherwise you will have all the crumbs in the middle of the parlor.

    Framed by the mighty town hall and the Frauenkirche, the market square is a beautiful old town ensemble. The building of the Markt-Apotheke, Markt 4, with its Renaissance volute gables is particularly striking.

    The old town is a jewel with numerous historical buildings from the Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque periods. In addition to the representative large buildings such as the town hall and the Frauenkirche, it is above all the many interesting residential and commercial buildings that characterize the city center. These include buildings with elaborate Renaissance gables, such as the brewery and the market pharmacy.

    The former guild house of the cloth makers' guild has been a well-known wine bar and restaurant since at least 1873. The interior design with many museum items is also interesting.

    The Zieger pastry shop is the traditional manufacturer of these bizarre, fragile pastries. According to tradition, it goes back to the Postreiter between Leipzig and Dresden, who got drunk with Meißner wine and arrived battered. To prevent this, they had to present an unbroken fiddle at the destination ...
