Married or not, gingerbread hearts, which have been baked since Christiansfeld's foundation, are a must when visiting the city. Back then this gingerbread was only known in Christiansfeld and its vicinity, but it has since become popular throughout the country.
The Royal family has a tradition of ordering gingerbread hearts for weddings, and Queen Ingrid was particularly keen on the gingerbread pastries. She came to the bakery many times, handpicking which pastries to take home for coffee time and for her grandchildren.
Today gingerbread is baked and sold in many places around the city, each with its own recipe, so you can find the place that bakes your favourite.
