Festivals & Feasts

The Germans are still adapting to the new order of life allowed by the unification of East & West Germany. The sense of formality and predilection for conformity and punctuality still pervade the culture, but the beer and wine of the festivals easily unleash a more relaxed, carefree and convivial atmosphere.

Here are some key festivals where food plays a larger than usual role:


Moselle Wine Festival

Durkheim Sausage & Wine Festival
