America’s First Commercial Pretzel Bakery

Julius Sturgis Pretzel Bakery - Lititz, Pa

Welcome to America’s First Commercial Pretzel Bakery.

It was here in Lititz in 1861 that Julius Sturgis opened the first commercial pretzel bakery in America. Now, all these years later, the bakery is still operated by the Sturgis family using the same old-fashioned recipe and methods originally established by Julius Sturgis.

Twist Your Own Pretzel

Today, visitors can take a bakery tour, where they’ll get to twist their own pretzel, learn about the history of pretzel baking, see the original brick ovens built in 1861, and watch old-fashioned soft pretzels being made on site.

Tours are offered every day, beginning as the store opens. The last tour of the day begins a half-hour before closing time.  Admission: $5.50 adults, $5.00 Seniors (65+) and Military, and $4.50 children ages 4-12.

You can also taste and purchase our fresh hot soft pretzels and the company’s variety of hard pretzels.
