Most (or all- that I know of) bread is made without eggs but for the cakes the best would be to look at or ask about the ingredients. Pastry and biscuits can be made without, but may be glazed with egg white, so best to ask.

Get to know your local baker- talk to them. Problem is with a severe egg allergy is that many products do not contain egg, but are made in a factory or bakery, etc, where egg is used regularly and can 'contaminate' other products. If it is because you are vegan, then it is much easier.

Try the 'reformhaus' (health food store) - it will be quite expensive, though.
We use this one a lot:

Otherwise, you'll probably get really good at baking your own!

I'm quite sure you can get 'egg replacer' at the health food store too. The problem I have with reading the labels (In German) is that they use the word 'Eiweiss' interchangeably for Protein - you will also see the word 'Protein' - Eiweiss also means 'egg white'. You might also see it written in German as Eiweiß.
