Culinary Specialties of the Rheinland

The region known as the Rhineland was the former Prussian Rhine region. Today its exact borders no longer exist, but it is found partly in the German state of Rhineland-Palatinate (Rheinland-Pfalz), partly in the German state of North Rhine-Westphalia (Nordrhein-Westfalen), and even stretches into Belgium.

The most well-known foods from the Rhineland include Sauerbraten, waffles, potato pancakes, Halver Hahn, Himmel und Erde, and Spekulatus. Likewise, Alt, Pils, and Kölsch beers are enjoyed here, as well as a large selection of local wines.

Hearty vegetable soups and stews are very common in the Rhineland region. Seafood is also a favorite, with dishes such as eel, perch, trout, carp, and mussels.
