Emil Reimann Dresdner Stollen "Edition Frauenkirche" is the classic among the Christmas pastries and inseparable from the city of Dresden. The tradition of this Christmas pastry goes back to the 15th century. Over the generations, the Dresden Stollen has become what it is today - a baking tradition of the highest quality.
Selected raw materials such as German butter, rum-soaked sultanas and the best spices are the basic ingredients of the Emil Reimann Stollen dough, which is crafted by hand, lovingly, in the traditional Stollen form. After baking, the Stollen is buttered and refined with sugar.
The Dresden Frauenkirche was built by George Bähr between 1726 and 1743. The world-famous dome of the sacred building, the "Steinerne Glocke", is an architectural highlight. It has crowned and characterized the unique silhouette of the city of Dresden for many centuries. It was severely damaged by the air raid on February 13, 1945 and collapsed shortly afterwards. For many years it was just a ruin, a memorial to remind of the war, until it was rebuilt after reunification: on October 30, 2005, a festive consecration service took place in the new Frauenkirche. The ruin became a symbol of tolerance, peace and reconciliation.
All Emil Reimann Stollen come with an extra package of powdered sugar.
