The World’s Most Beautiful Dairy Shop


Imagine walking into the most beautifully adorned room at Versailles to buy a piece of cheese or some yogurt. That’s probably the feeling you get when you step into Pfunds Molkerei, officially the most beautiful dairy shop in the world. Located in Dresden, Germany, Pfunds Molkerei is one of the most popular tourist attractions in the German city, with over 500,000 tourists stopping by every year. That’s pretty unusual for a dairy shop, but then it has more of a palace vibe. The whole store is decorated with ceramic tiles produced by Villeroy & Boch and hand-painted in the Neo-Renaissance style by local artists. The shop, which was built in 1891, managed to survive World War II bombings and continued operating until 1978. It was only in 1995 that the shop once again opened its doors. Since then, the awe-inspiring shop has become a globally recognized landmark of Dresden. Although the dairy itself is no longer in operation, the shop continues to sell a variety of dairy foods, as well as a popular milk soap.
