Kassel Local Customs: 4 reviews and 2 photos
This is not so much a local custom, but rather a local food! Ahle Wurscht is as typical for Kassel as the gingerbread is for Nuremberg or the Grüne Sauce for Frankfurt. Ahle Wurscht can be translated with "old sausage", but this should not terrify you. This special kind of sausage tastes best after at least a week. If you get the chance, try it! Many of the local pubs offer Ahle Wurscht as "good with beer". If you want to buy it yourself, go to any butcher in the city - they all have it. Ask for a "Dürre Runde" if you prefer a longer but bent one, or for a "Stracke" if you prefer the long straight one.
Finally, here's my secret tip: The very best, the ultimate Ahle Wurscht can be purchased in a village near Kassel called Ihringshausen. Search for "Fleischerei Lämmerhirt", a butcher just next to the station.
