Lonely Planet review

The 150-year-old Café Zieger , by the foot of the Rote Stufen, is sole stockist of a peculiar local patisserie known as the Meissner Fummel . Resembling an ostrich egg made of very delicate pastry, legend has it the Fummel was invented in 1710 as a test to stop the royal courier from drinking between deliveries - great care is required if you want to get it home in one piece.
