The Julius Sturgis Pretzel Bakery is located in historic Lititz, Pennsylvania in the middle of beautiful Pennsylvania Dutch Country.

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.
