Wursthaus Schmitz at Reading Terminal Market to close

Then-chef Jeremy Nolen at Wursthaus Schmitz at its opening in late 2012.

Wurst news for fans of German fare:

Deli/sandwich shop Wursthaus Schmitz will end its five-plus-year run at Reading Terminal Market on April 29.

Doug Hager — who also owns the popular Brauhaus Schmitz (718 South St.) and Whetstone (Fifth and Bainbridge Streets) and has four kids ages 6 and under — said it was getting to be too much for him, given the departure of longtime manager Beate Schartner.

She is bound for Germany to open her own restaurant.
