Butcher Dirk Ludwig made batches of what are thought to be among the most expensive bratwurst in the world in Schluechtern, Hesse. At around €30 (S$52) per 40g of sausage, the bratwurst is said to be the most expensive on the market.
The wurst is made from Kobe beef. Kobe sausage maker, Ludwig, said, "It is very fatty and tasty and we need the meat for special sausages, the most expensive sausages in the world."
The cattle meat comes from the Japanese region of Kobe. It is recognised by many as the best meat in the world because of its high taste intensity.
Ludwig started producing the Kobe sausage in Autumn 2015.
