For more than 400 years, the Weiß family at the Romantik Hotel zur Post has been pampering their guests with culinary delights using traditional family recipes adapted to the times. Join us on a culinary journey through time and cook the delicious apple pancake according to the recipe of Fanny Weiß, the great-grandmother of today's host Ludwig Michael Weiß.

Take a look at the history of the Weiß family in Fürstenfeldbruck. And here is a picture of Ludwig Weiß in the kitchen with his daughters Anna and Fanny Weiß (1890).
