The Oebel Brothers’ Cake Shop
The best Christstollen in town
It’s almost Christmas and in Germany that’s when you start eating the famous “Christstollen”. In Cologne, the number one spot to buy them is the Oebel Brothers’ cake shop.
Christstollen: everyone’s favourite
Anticipated all year long by the German people, as soon as the Christmas season arrives they hurry into one of Cologne’s most famous cake shops for their Christstollen: the one run by the Oebel brothers. It comes in all sorts of fantastic flavours such as baked apple, cranberry, almond butter or the traditional marzipan, Christstollen has been the pride and joy of the Oebel cake shop for over 100 years.
Gold medals galore
In fact the Oebel cake shop, which has recently won various gold medals for its Christstollen, continues to be highly innovative: the small version, called “Christstollen to go” is a must for taking to work or school! The classic gift par excellence, however, is still the Jean Oebel Christstollen, which comes in a wooden box so that it keeps better and for a longer time. And if you want to get a taste of the different kinds of Christstollen on offer, you can go for the “samples” box, which contains an array of various tasty little Christstollens. Delicious.
