5 best places to visit in Bavaria

If you haven’t visited Germany yet, you’re in for a culinary surprise. No matter how many times you’ve tasted schnitzel and saukerkraut at home, the German traditional versions are so much more delicious! Sharon Preston visits Germany regularly on business. Here she gives us an idea of what to sample next time your’e on holiday in Germany…

german knodelKnodel
These traditional German dumplings originated in South-eastern Germany. They are made from potato, semolina, flour or bread, rolled into a ball shape and boiled or steamed in salt water. Germans love dumplings and eat different varieties with most meals. They can be served as a main meal, a side dish, dipped in soup, or even as a dessert. Savoury Knodel are traditionally served as an accompaniment to roast meat or poultry, or in veal or beef stews.

Paniertes SchnitzelSchnitzel
Yes, we know you’ve tasted schnitzel. But the real McCoy, the German version, is a little bit different from a thin escalope of veal, chicken or beef coated with flour, egg and breadcrumbs and fried in butter or oil. Veal schnitzel, called Wiener Schnitzel, actually hails from Austria, but the German versions are a little different. In Germany you can enjoy run-of-the-mill schnitzel, but you can also enjoy Schweine-Schnitzel, which is a breaded pork loin cutlet, Puten Schnitzel, made with turkey breast, and Hanchen Schnitzel, made using boneless chicken breast. Restaurant portions are usually huge and schnitzel is accompanied with fries, red sauerkraut, German potato salad, asparagus or other vegetables.

germany sauerbrautenSauerbrauten
Sauerbrauten literally means ‘sour roast’. It’s a classic German potroast made from a variety of meats, usually beef, but also lamb, pork, venison or horsemeat. Its sour flavour comes from being marinated for several days in a mixture of vinegar, wine, herbs, spices and seasonings. The dish is traditionally served with red cabbage, knodel (dumplings) and apple sauce, though sometimes spatzle (noodles) or boiled potatoes are used instead. There are several regional varieties – their difference is usually in the marinade.


germany paprikahendlHendl
Chicken, or Hendl, as it’s called in Germany, is traditionally served grilled, marinated with pepper and other spices. It’s very popular in most restaurants and is served with fries or a choice of other vegetables. Another classic German dish using chicken is Paprika Hendl, Chicken Paprika, made using chicken, cream and paprika. It’s usually served with spatzle (noodles) or potatoes.

Every country has its version of pasta or noodles, and Spatzle is Germany’s. They are an important ingredient in many classic German dishes and are made from flour, water, salt and eggs. These curly noodles range from yellow to white depending on how much egg is added. In autumn and winter, they’re served as an alternative to potatoes with roast or braised meat, poultry, game or beef rolls. They are popular in local German homes as well as on menus in German restaurants.

Brezel (pretzel)
Wherever you go in Germany, you’ll find these tasty dark brown snacks, crispy with a salt crust on the outside, or sesame seeds, sunflower or poppy seeds, and a soft dough inside. Pretzels have a unique shape and each region has its own version of that shape. To this day, Brezel or Pretzels, are handmade by bakers who have perfected this traditional craft. They are served as a snack anytime, and you can buy them at bakeries or street stands.

Germany’s favourite fast food is Currywurst, a boiled, fried or grilled sausage cut into pieces one inch thick and topped with a combination of tomato paste, curry powder and paprika. They are traditionally served with a roll or fries. The snack originated in Berlin.

Schwarzwalder Kirschtorte (Black Forest Cherry Cake)
Famous throughout Germany, although it originated in the Black Forest Region, Black Forest Cherry Cake is a real treat. Its made of four layers of chocolate sponge cake sandwiched together with cherries and whipped cream flavoured with Kirschwasser (cherry schnapps). It’s also covered with whipped cream, chocolate shavings and a few fresh cherries.









One of my favourite locations in Cologne is the city’s iconic Opera House. Here I share some information about it…

Cologne is a city of opera lovers. The city’s residents have enjoyed opera here since the mid 18th Century. In fact, the first permanent opera company here was established in 1822 and performed in the Theater an der Schmierstrasse, which was built in 1783 and used for concerts, plays and opera.The first opera house to be built in the city was the Theater am Habsburger Ring, built in 1902 by the city. It was badly damaged during the Second World War, so opera was performed at the University of Cologne until a new building was built. In fact, the opera company also used to perform in the repaired Glockengasse and Habsburger Ring theaters too.
The current Cologne Opera House is the first modern music building to be built in Europe after the Second World War. It was designed by the German architect Wilhelm Riphahn and it was inaugurated in 1957 by the former mayor of Cologne, Konrad Adenauer, who was Chancellor of Germany at the time. The first opera to be performed here was Oberon, created by Carl Maria von Weber.
The opera house seats up to 1 300 spectators and the orchestra pit accommodates 100 musicians. This magnificent building has been designed so that wherever one sits in the audience, the stage is visible and the acoustics are excellent. The Opera House is home to a resident opera company that performs approximately 25 different operas during the regular season, which runs from September to June.
The Opera house is also part of an arts complex that includes the Cologne Playhouse, built in 1962 and also designed by Riphahn. Both theaters were recently extensively refurbished.
The Cologne Opera company is famous for producing the highest quality children’s operas in the world. And in addition to producing classical performances, it also produces operas from the 20th Century. The Cologne Opera House also hosts dance performances. We suggest you find out what is showing while you’re in town, as it would be a great opportunity to attend a performance of either opera or dance in one of the best opera houses in Europe.

Driving To Greece From Ireland

I have done this trip a number of times before there are quite a few possibilities on how to travel this journey on our last trip we went from Dun Laoghaire to Holyhead in the boat with StenaLine the journey took us about 3 hours in total. From Holyhead we drove down to Dover and got the boat across from Dover to Calais we went in the Campervan though on all other 8 occasions we drove by car.  The drive through Wales has some stunning scenery and if you go off the dual carriageway for a bit there are some beautiful scenic side roads with nice shops and cafe’s.

Staying At Mum,s House The Night Before Our Trip In dublin

After driving for another 6 hours or so we arrived in Dover for the boat over to Calais upon arrival in France it seemed a little difficult to find places to eat with proper food all the restaurants we stoppped at apparently don’t serve proper food till like 6PM and it was about 2PM after driving in around all morning this was a pretty painful part of the journey all their seemed to be was sandwiches Croissants and brioche.  If you are sick of ham and cheese sandwiches and look for food in France during the day like ourselves you may have a problem..

Finally after about 3 hours of searching for food we found a roadside cafe and had chicken,chips and peas not very exciting but compared to our previous options that day it felt like a feast..  After France we drove through Belgium offering us an opportunity to even take a little detour via Holland..  We lived in Holland when I was a child and had many fond memories in fact it has changed very little from how i remembered it. There is a wonderful beach called Scheveningen well worth a visit and the Dutch Indonesianstyle Satay sauce is really amazing.

If you are with kids like us no trip to Holland is complete without a visit to the model city Maduradam just outside Rotterdam, there is also the Euromast which at one stage many  years ago had been one of the tallest buildings in Europe also worth a visit it has amazing views from the cafe. The gets where absolutely in paradise in Maduradam watching the model planes boats,trains and scaled down version of Holland. Plus a visit to the Panakook House.

For some of the best home made Large think pancakes you have ever tasted with fruit syrup,maple syprup or ham or bacon and cheese toppings. And last but not least Hollands top dessert Pofferjies mit stroop…  Definetely worth a try…  When arriving in Holland I would definetely suggest booking yourself into a hotel for the night and spend at least 1 full day doing the tour above. 🙂

Okay finished with the little dutch mini vacation time for the road again and on to Germany down to the autobann . If you have a fast comfortable car this is perfect place to put the foot down to the metal for a bit..  I don’t recommend doing it for too long as when driving for so long you will get pretty tired and driving at extremely high speeds when a little tired is not recommended for obvious reasons. There are lots of Rasthouses in Germany so you can book yourselves into a room and get a good nights sleep when you start feeling your eyes getting heavy..  Or if you are on a budget there are rest stops along the road where you can pull in for a few hours at a time and grab some sleep.  I found the food and pastries etc in Germany are very nice only problem I have with Germany is some of the employees have an attitude of someone who just had their brother shot by you..  But hey that’s their problem not yours.


After Germany on to Switzerland a little on the expensive side but very beautiful we stayed in a lovely hotel overlooking the Alps absolutely amazing and the morning air was so fresh. There after on our way to Italy the mad drivers and lots of Tolls. In Italy you have choices drive fast or become a target for the mafia lol..  They drive like maniacs everyone seems to drive at least  150 KM PER HOUR In Italy so if you don’t you would be probably causing an obstruction and not be too popular. I definetely recommend stopping off at some beautiful beaches along the road. The sea is a beautiful shade of green and in the summer the temperature of the water is just perfect.

Food during the day can also be a bit of a problem restaurants seem to open in the evening so during the day you may be left eating parma ham sandwiches home made pizza which looks like  well done tomatoe puree on overcooked french baguette with no cheese. Or some type of biscuits or pretzels..  Not exactly a feast but if you have any sense you will buy a few supplies in Germany before hitting the food free zones it also helps if you have an icebox or mini fridge. After enjoying the drive and intense 45% TEMPERATURES in Italy arrive in Ancona ready for your 19 hour boat trip to Patras on Superfast. The hospitality of the Greeks on superfast is second to none though they do tend to go through little rants at times, But hey we can  just put that down to all those rays from the sun..

Then we arrive in Patras stay in a Hotel by the sea head out for a nice evening in a typical Greek Restaurant yes indeed my favourite part of the holiday begins, The Greek food,Greek atmosphere hospitality and beautiful white villas and shops. The next morning up early and set off for Athens, I am cheating a little as my sister lives there outside a village called Pendelis. So I didn’t need to book any hotels in Athens, but a visit to Loutsa to the beach and some of the best home made ice cream you can imagine.  The Souvlaki in Pendelis and the lovely little restaurants beside the Acropolis together with a visit to the ruins of the parthenon and outdoor theatre are well worth a visit.   Just chill out enjoy the food weather and hospitality and crazy drivers and most of all remember when in Greece do what the crazy Greeks Do..  Enjoy 🙂
