Stadtwurst is a fine grind German sausage, but there are also coarse grind Stadtwurst sausages, for example Nürnberger Stadtwurst or Schlesische. Although Stadtwurst translates into City Sausage this reasoning cannot be universally applied as there are different meat and spice combinations in different regions of the country. The common denominator is the diameter of the sausage, its ring shape, materials: pork or pork and beef and the heating process. The sausage is usually hot smoked and boiled in water.
