As part of walking tour, we watched a demo on how gingerbread cookies are made. I definitely like the ones made out of sugar instead of honey or marzipan. We brought home 6 bags for families and cocoa mix. The other cookies and cakes were also delectable.

Meeting several generations of gingerbread makers was one of the highlights of the tour of Passau. It was great to see such pride in their work and see how traditions are handed down from generation to generation. They gave us several types of gingerbread to try and told us the history of this winter tradition.

We managed to catch a Gingerbread demonstration at the Cafe, the gingerbread was that good we went for a walk around the Christmas Market and Passau town before returning for lunch.

There was a large choice on the menu, we had a really good lunch, Elder Simon, stopped by our table for a quick chat and to wish us a Happy Christmas. It was then decided that we couldn't leave without a piece of cake and a coffee - the choice of cake was very difficult but we eventually decided that we would share a piece of cake. Both the coffee and cake were superb.

It was then time to get some chocolate & biscuits to take home. A wonderful lunch time and goodies to take home.

We stopped by Cafe Simon to see a demonstration of how Lebkuchen (Gingerbread) was made, really interesting with ample samples available to try, also some excellent Glühwein to keep out the cold! The Cafe and attached shop looked so nice we decided to come back later for a coffee and pastry, what a good decision that was! When we returned we decided to have a snack lunch as well, Wiener Schnitzel and Goulash soup, followed by coffee and torte, very good. Tip for ordering the torte/cakes, go to the counter and tell the waitress what cake you want, they will give you a numbered ticket, go back to your table and they will bring over your order.
Also, don't miss the chocolates, lebkuchen & biscuits on sale in the shop, they are delicious and not excessively expensive.

We made a visit to Cafe' Simon, while in Passau. Met the Elder Simon and his Son who is now the owner. We were fortunate to see how the dough is made and a sample of the products. Had Glühwein which on that cold day was wonderful.
