Flour runs in Josef’s veins. His great-grandparents, Jean and Katharina Hinkel, first opened their bakery in 1891, and Josef still bakes ‘printen’ (a special kind of gingerbread) using their original recipe. Today, he oversees the two family-run bakeries in downtown Düsseldorf, and can often be seen waving a cheery ‘hello’ as he cycles to the market with fresh loaves of bread each morning.
Join Josef for a stroll around the traditional food market at Carls Platz before a private tour of his famous bakery, where he’ll give you a fascinating insight into the life of a baker – and may even teach you how to make the perfect bread roll…
