Taste SouthWest Germany
Eating local dishes, drinking local wines and quaffing local beers are essential ingredients for a memorable holiday. And SouthWest Germany ticks all the boxes with atmospheric taverns, cheerful cafés, award-winning wineries and historic breweries. But there is so much more, from organic farm-to-table produce and tempting cakes to delectable fruit schnapps and more gourmet restaurants than anywhere else in Germany. Chefs follow the seasons. From mid-April to late June, the spotlight is on asparagus; in autumn, orchards are heavy with fruit, such as cherries – essential for Black Forest Gateau. Pork and beef are home-grown; clean rivers provide trout; breads are freshly-baked. All delicious; all healthy; all great value for money. Good food demands good wine. In Germany’s sunniest region, vineyards produce lively wines that collect international awards. Not forgetting a wide range of beers, each with its own character. Relax in beer gardens and on wine terraces; eat in medieval taverns; try a new dish. Forget the clock; you’re on holiday!
