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.

Murder at Mount Hope
It is 1939; America finds itself still gripped firmly by the calloused hands of The Great Depression. The American Paranormal Society (APS) has been re-energized by a shift in its mission. The Society will be using its considerable influence to help bring about a swift end to the downward economic spiral that has hobbled the American Dream and given rise to numerous opportunistic tyrants. The APS believes that the answers to today’s problems lie in the past. Why read dusty, old books, when one can speak directly with those who lived it?
Time: Saturday - 10:00 AM - 9:00 PM Sunday - 10:00 AM - 6:00 PM
Guests can also discover over 23-acres of natural splendor at Hershey Gardens, enjoy interactive exhibits at The Hershey Story Museum, and explore a world bursting with chocolate at Hershey’s Chocolate World.
