Gingerbread Museum in Torun

The medieval city of Torun in Poland has a long-standing history and culture centered around gingerbread. Known as the "Gingerbread Capital" of Poland, the city has been producing gingerbread since the Middle Ages, and its gingerbread is famous throughout Poland and beyond. Torun even boasts the first recorded gingerbread recipe in Europe, dating back to the 16th century.



Today, visitors can witness the traditional process of gingerbread-making and decorating by hand and even participate in workshops to make their decorative gingerbread. The Gingerbread Museum is a charming tribute to this sweet treat, showcasing antique molds, tools, and machines used in its production. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit and workshop, where we learned about the history and traditional gingerbread-making methods. The museum and workshop are a must-see and must-do experience for anyone interested in immersing themselves in Torun's rich culture and history.


But the highlight of our visit was the Gingerbread workshop. We made our decorative gingerbread, from mixing the ingredients to rolling out the dough and cutting out the shapes using traditional molds. We had a great instructor who was friendly and knowledgeable, making the experience even more enjoyable. It was fascinating to learn about the traditional methods of making gingerbread. We recommend the workshop to anyone interested in trying this traditional craft.



We highly recommend visiting the Gingerbread Museum and taking part in the workshop. It's a sweet treat for your taste buds and a unique way to experience the city's history and culture.
