Our new master baker

We are pleased to announce that our Brian successfully completed his master baker training in the spring of 2021.

Due to COVID-19, the master celebration with the subsequent presentation of the master certificate was postponed to September 2022.




The Wolfshügel Observation Tower in the Dresden Heath, near the König-Albert-Park, was once a popular excursion destination. The 25-meter-high tower offered a magnificent view of the Elbe Valley, extending to the heights of the Osterzgebirge.


Unfortunately, it was destroyed at the end of the war, and only the massive base remains as a reminder.

The "Reconstruction of the Wolfshügelturm" association has taken on the task of rebuilding it. As this endeavor relies on donations, we would like to support it by offering a special bread baked every Saturday, marked with a small symbol of the tower.

From the sale of each loaf, €1 will be donated to the association for the reconstruction. An impressive €1.5 million is needed for this effort, and it can only be achieved through donations. The construction is expected to commence in 2021. For more information, please visit the website


We bake according to our old recipes and enjoy trying out new ones.

Let yourself be surprised!


"To you, oh full-bodied Dresden roll, I shall sing."

In 2008, we had the unique honor of being mentioned by the writer Uwe Tellkamp in his highly successful novel "Der Turm" (The Tower). Although only as a minor character, he praised our bakery.


Even today, Mr. Tellkamp (who has returned to our area after many years away) remains one of our valued customers.

The city guide Albrecht Hoch ( would be delighted to take you on a tour of the legendary Weissen Hirsch, allowing you to immerse yourself in the era of "The Tower"...

Our Story

In the year 1870, a residential building with a bakery was constructed on Rissweg at the Weissen Hirsch in Dresden by Friedrich Wilhelm Gneuß. Several owners changed over the years until the bakery was leased to the young master baker Hartmut Walther and his wife Christa by Heinrich Nitschke in 1970, following his retirement.
