The Altes Land region is with good reason described as Germany's largest orchard. Just outside the city of Hamburg, more than 10,000 hectares are given over to fruit growing, predominantly apples, but also cherries, pears, plums and berries, all of which find their way into Germany's greengrocers. In Lower Saxony, this local fruit is mainly used in delicious cakes and other sweet treats, which can be sampled in numerous farmshop cafés out in the countryside.
