Did you know?


I am delighted to share my local Dresden- knowlege with you!

Did you know that the world’s first milk chocolate was invented in Dresden in 1839, even before the Swiss invented it (30 years before the Swiss invention)? Maybe this seems weird today, but Jordan&Timaeus used donkey milk for their chocolate creations, which were famous around the world (they even expanded to Vienna, Prague and Budapest).

Jordan und Timaeus (the two inventors) produced the milk chocolate with a steam-engine first. The factory was just around the corner from Lollis Homestay Hostel, unfortunately does it not exist anymore today.

Today only the two street names: “Jordanstrasse” and “Timaeusstrasse” remind of the factory. Although you can still visit the Timaeus villa in the backyard of Alaunstraße 71b (it was the manufacturer residence).

The old chocolate factory. Today the area looks completely different.
