The most beautiful dairy in the world
The Dresdner Molkerei Gebrüder Pfund, or Pfund's Dairy, is the most beautiful dairy in the world (or so they claim). I haven't toured many dairies, so I'm not qualified to disagree, and the Pfund's Dairy is quite unique. The small shop area is covered with over 3500 painted ceramic tiles with scenes of angels drinking milk.
There is a cafe, but the shop itself is quite small, or at least it seems tiny when the tour busses unload there. The shop sells cheese and other dairy products in addition to souvenirs. The visit itself will take less than 30 minutes depending on if you are buying anything. If you are in Dresden and on a tour, I would get off the bus to check it out. Otherwise, it's not necessarily worth going out of your way for. The website is http://www.pfunds.de/. [more ]
