Wurstkuchl Album

in the past

The origin of the historic Wurstkuchl was a small building leaning against the city wall, which served as a construction office during the construction of the stone bridge from 1135 to 1146. When the building, which was celebrated as the eighth wonder of the world at the time, was completed, the construction office moved out and the small building became the "food stall on the crane". The customers of the cookshop were port and construction workers, hence the name »Kranchen«, the word for crane or cranes at the time. There were many port workers because the wealthy commercial patricians of the Free Imperial City of Regensburg used the port intensively for centuries as a transshipment point for goods from all over the world. The hungry construction workers, on the other hand, came mainly from the construction site of the Regensburg Cathedral.

When the boiled meat in the cookshop was replaced by the finer sausages cannot be precisely determined. Presumably they were introduced in 1806 when the historic sausage kitchen was sold by the city treasury to the cookery chef Wolfgang Schricker. At the beginning of the 19th century, with the new owner Wolfgang Schricker, the era of the Schricker family begins, which extends to the current owners, the Schricker-Meier family.

today

Admittedly, the historic Wurstkuchl is today - along with the cathedral and the Steinerner Brücke - a bit of a "must-see travel guide" for most Regensburg visitors. We look forward to the many guests from all over the world who give the old sausage cake a touch of international flair. We are and will continue to be a place of tradition. This is especially true for the quality of our food and drinks. Not least because of this, the people of Regensburg have remained loyal to us for many centuries.
