Labskaus, the sailor's stew, in Wilhelmshaven.

Labskaus is a typical north German dish and is today considered something of a speciality. Sailors on tall ships used to have no way of keeping food fresh for long. This stew made of cured beef, pickled beetroot, potato and onions could be kept for long periods, however. It's a dish that has given rise to numerous stories and legends. The world's largest labskaus festival takes place in the North See harbour town of Wilhelmshaven.
