Gastronomy in Siegen-Wittgenstein

When you hike through the most forested region in Germany, breathing in the tangy scent of the Siegen-Wittgenstein forest, you're sure to start feeling hungry sometime soon.

Local delicacies are served, such as game specialities and refined potato dishes. Wild herbs that grow in the region, such as ground elder or ribwort, are also used as ingredients in the local cuisine, as is meat from the Siegerland red cattle, real Siegerland black or trench bread, and of course, local beers. One world-famous beer, Krombacher beer, is brewed in the Kreuztal valley in Siegerland, at the foot of the Kindelsberg hill. Thanks to one of the world’s best chocolatiers, Markus Podzimek, one of the most famous people from the Siegerland region, Peter Paul Rubens, has posthumously been given a culinary honour: the Rubens chocolate ball.
