Julius Sturgis Pretzel Bakery, Lititz

4.2
Have some history with your pretzels at Julius Sturgis Pretzel Bakery, which offers tours and hands-on lessons in old-fashioned pretzel twisting. Established in 1861, this is the oldest commercial pretzel bakery in the United States. Owned and operated by the same family who founded the original bread business, the bakery continues to make pretzels using the same traditional recipe developed over 150 years ago. Take a tour of the bakery, which showcases ovens built by its founder. After you watch expert bakers twist pretzels into their signature shape, you'll have the opportunity to try it yourself with your own piece of dough. The bakery shop sells souvenirs and baked treats.

  • Fun interactive tour about pretzels. Our tour guide was very friendly and he made the tour interesting. We even got to make our own pretzel shapes and got rewarded with a certificate and paid with a bag of pretzels too!
  • This place is fun. This is not where the actual pretzels are made unless you're buying the soft pretzels at the front of the store. This is the original house for the whole factory and company started. They give tours every once in awhile during the day. There is no parking, however, it is on a very quaint part of Main Street in Lititz Pennsylvania. You will enjoy making us a stop here during your trip to the town.
