One traditional Mannheim location is the Konditorei Herrdegen. For more than 150 years, it has had a reputation for top quality. This family business has been producing cakes and gateaux using traditional techniques for generations. Once you have made your selection from the many different varieties on offer, you should take a seat on the first floor. Here you can relax from the stresses of the day and enjoy the feeling of being back in the days of the Electors. You should definitely try the most famous creation of the Herrdegen family: the “Mannemer Dreck”. Made from honey, nuts and other spices, this gingerbread-like pastry may not captivate you with its name, but it will with its fine taste.
