Fun Fact
Did you know that...

...in the fall, many wineries in Germany offer special menus in rustic settings? These only last for a few weeks and are especially popular with hikers on the weekend. You can recognize participating vineyards by the bouquet of dried flowers or a broom outside the entrance, aptly giving these their name: Straußenwirtschaft or Besenwirtschaft .
