Wednesday, July 9, 2014 - Julius Sturgis Pretzel Factory Tour

Lancaster County

All summer through December, the Julius Sturgis Pretzel Factory will have bakery tours open from 9:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. In 1861, Julius Sturgis switched from being a bread baker to establishing the first commercial pretzel bakery in America, and to this day, the Sturgis family continues to bake pretzels using the same old-fashioned recipe. The hands-on tours include the original bakery, where visitors get their own piece of dough and are taught how to twist a pretzel, and the original ovens built by Julius Sturgis.
