The Nidelkuchen is a cream cake the conception of which is totally unique. This pastry is produced in various bakeries in Murten.

The distinctive feature of the Nidelkuchen is that at least five thin coats of cream are added to a light raised pastry base. The first three coats are lightly acidulated and sweetened and are added during the cooking. These form a fine coat of caramel, which softens when the last two coats of Gruyere double cream are added. A clever mixture that makes this tart a creamy delight that melts in the mouth.

Murten’s famous “Cream Cake,” is a delight to gourmets. In Murten’s neighboring villages, take pleasure in sampling “Savory Cake,” baked in the traditional village ovens; often enjoyed as an appetizer with a glass of Vully wine. Regional bakeries and confectionaries are ready to surprise you with the other sweet and savory delicacies, too. Let yourself be tempted!
