Tips

For the longest time, the Swiss were considered to be the inventors of our much-loved milk chocolate. But it was actually Gottfried Jordan and August Friedrich Timaeus with their Saxon “Chocolate and Chicory Factory Jordan Timaeus” who got there first in 1839. Reports say the original recipes called for the chocolate to be made out of cocoa, sugar and donkey’s milk. And then there is the famous sweet bread “Dresdner Christstollen” as well as “Dresdner Russisch Brot” which have their roots in the metropolis on the Elbe River. For the latter, Friedrich Wilhelm Hanke oriented himself on a way of baking that came from St. Petersburg and created a Dresden version in 1844. Dr. Quendt’s café “Weitblick” continues this Dresden baking tradition and not only provides you with regional delicacies but also with a wonderful view of the city.

MEISSEN Porcelain was invented in Dresden in 1708 by the alchemist Johann Friedrich Böttger while he was trying to manufacture gold on the behest of Augustus the Strong. Visit the Staatliche Porzellan-Manufaktur Meissen and submerge yourself in a world of valuable treasures – in the exhibition workshops or in the MEISSEN Porcelain Museum. In addition to lovingly presented showpieces of the permanent exhibition, the special exhibition of 2018 has a very special focus: it looks at the fascinating history of the onion pattern that to the present day is and remains one of the most popular designs (on till 31 Dec. 2018).

In 2019 the museum will be looking at the origins of Saxon porcelain – with a special exhibition on Johann Friedrich Böttger on the occasion of the 250th anniversary of his death. MEISSEN porcelain is of course used in the Café and Restaurant of the visitor center.

The pleasure of eating and drinking is even nicer if you have a certain ease and convenience. That is what the housewife Melitta Bentz thought too and using her children’s blotters and a tin can she developed the first coffee filter. The start of a success story that has continued on to the present day! One of the first industrially produced Melitta-filters can be seen in the permanent exhibition of the Local History Museum Dresden – in addition to many other exciting items and stories from the time of industrialization and especially from the foodstuffs and consumer goods industries of Dresden.

It is not just for the connoisseurs of coffee that the Dresden Elbland has set important milestones: the l worker Adolf Rambold is considered to be the inventor of the tea bag. His first version consisted of special, tasteless parchment paper and a double bag system. The Dresden- d company “Teekanne”, where Rambold worked, introduced the teabags in 1929. After the company was dispossessed after Second World War, the new headquarters of the Teehaus GmbH was founded in Radebeul. You are a passionate tea drinker? Then make a point of visiting the outlet of “Teehaus” and take part in a tea testing to find your favourite kind of tea.
