Authentic Nuremberg Lebkuchen brought to Canada by Gingerbread World
Gingerbread World is the home of Lebkuchen Schmidt Canada - the place to buy the scrumptious pastries and cookies made in the famous Schmidt bakeries in Nuremberg Germany.
Lebkuchen is a special German Christmas tradition - soft, chewy gingerbread-like cookies made only for the Holiday Season from closely guarded recipes that have been passed down through centuries. (read more about Lebkuchen by clicking here).
For over 25 years Gingerbread World has brought these special Christmas treats to Canada. And we look forward to unveiling the all-new 2017 Christmas Collection in late August.
Only one shipment of Lebkuchen arrives in Canada from Nuremberg in late October and packages are shipped to customers and their friends and family all over North America. Old customers start their shopping early and orders start coming in in August. And when the cookies are all sold that's all there is until the next Holiday Season.

Part of the Lebkuchen tradition is to buy these pastries in beautifully illustrated and embossed metal chests and tins. And each year Lebkuchen Schmidt creates an entirely new Collection.
Some of our favorites from this past year have been the Janosch Chest (click here to read more about this Chest), the Advertising Column and, of course, the Festive Chest - the most sought after Chest in the Collection.
Read about the illustration on the 2016 Chest here.
In 2016 we introduced something new to our shop - the Gingerbread World Specialty Gift Boxes: decorative boxes filled with a variety of Lebkuchen Schmidt pastries, German chocolate and marzipan and beautiful handcrafted ornaments imported from the Schwarzwald (Black Forest) region of Germany.
For 2017 we have a few ideas of new items and gift packages that we would like to introduce - look for them in our webshop in August 2017.
