|Gingerbread from Nuremberg: Lebkuchen|
For this reason, I feel like the gingerbread I discovered in Germany, when I first visited Nuremberg, is not the same delicacy. It has all sort of seeds and spices in it with gives it a very distinctive scent and taste.
When I came back to Paris, I wanted to find a place where they sold it and there is! Der Tante Emma Laden at the Marché Saint-Martin sell them around the time of Nicolas Saint's Day and afterwards. I highly recommend going there for other specialties as well which you can eat on the spot.
