Travel Insider Tips for Ostheim
A local specialty is the Ostheimer meat loaf, which despite its name is not meatloaf and as is customary in southern Germany. It is made from 90 percent pork and 10 percent pig liver. The meat is processed immediately after slaughter while still warm, which improves the taste. Covered in nutmeg, it creates a thin crust and is a national specialty.
