Bonbon Macherei

    Reminiscent of long gone times when pocket money was spent in small specialist shops full of counters stacked high with brightly colored treats, the Bonbon Macherei will delight children, or your inner child. Several times a day (unless the weather is too hot or humid) Hjalmar Stecher, who runs the shop and candy production with his wife Katja Kolbe, gives a tour. He talks visitors through the sweet creation process from start to finish, including a demonstration direct from bubbling cauldron to glistening frosted confections. It's fascinating to see the range of machinery–some dating from the early 1900s–which is still in use after having been passed down through the family along with the business. Popular items include melt in your mouth peppermint chocolate pillows and the famous green leaf motif which is made with the local herb Waldmeister and forms part of the store's branding and artwork. To check if you can drop in to see the show, it's best to call ahead.Show lessRead more
