The Julius Sturgis Pretzel Bakery is located in historic Lititz, Pennsylvania in the middle of beautiful Pennsylvania Dutch Country. Visitors can tour the original pretzel bakery, get a hands-on lesson in pretzel twisting, observe our bakers twisting old-fashioned soft pretzels by hand, and shop for delicious treats and souvenirs in our bakery store.
We offer tours of the original bakery, during which each visitor is given their own piece of dough and taught how to twist a pretzel. Visitors will also see the original ovens built by Julius Sturgis and learn the history of pretzel baking in America. We are closed Sundays, Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Day, and New Year’s Day. In January, we do not open until the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday weekend.
Who could ask for anything more in a musical extravaganza? This high-energy comedy of mistaken identities, plot twists, fabulous costumes, dances, and Gershwin music is classic. Memorable tunes include I Can’t Be Bothered Now, I Got Rhythm, They Can’t Take That Away From Me, Embraceable You and Someone to Watch Over Me – See more at: http://www.padutchcountry.com
