The combination of German history, culture and wine will be irresistible for many travelers this fall.
Wine festivals in August and September are spread throughout Germanya€™s 13 wine-producing regions. More than 2,000 years ago, the Romans identified the mineral-rich terrain in Germany and laid the foundations of the vineyards that today cover more than 245,000 acres. At the tip of the southern Black Forest in Germanya€™s southernmost wine region of Baden, Freiburg offers a taste of the academic pace of life in one of Germanya€™s oldest university towns. Nestled between two of Germanya€™s most famous wine regions, where the Moselle and the Rhine come together, Koblenz stars as the host to the National Garden Show.
Deep in the Rhineland but still only a half hour from Frankfurt, Mainz is known as the Great Wine Capital, as it is the only German city belonging to this worldwide network. One particularly sweet time is August 25-28 and September 1-4, when the Mainz Wine Festival takes place. In the middle of Germanya€™s oldest wine territory, close to the steeps banks of the Moselle River and famous for its Roman gate and walls, Trier is where the Romans first planted their vines in Germany. In the spa town of Wiesbaden, the Rheingau Wine Week in August kicks off a celebration smack in the middle of town on the Castle Square. On the other side of Frankfurt is the baroque city of Wuerzburg in the heart of the Franconian wine region, where wine is bottled only in the famous bulbous bottles, called Bocksbeutel. More than 600 wines and sparkling wines from the Rheingau region will be tasted at 30 vintner stands. There is virtually no other wine festival in the Rhine Hessen region which takes place in such an attractive setting, surrounded by vineyards, as the Ingelheim Red Wine Festival.
The 183rd Munich Oktoberfest (beer festival) is all set to run from from September 17th until October 3rd 2016. Every year, around 250,000 national and international visitors enjoy the culinary delights, the tasty beer brewed especially for the occasion, and the unique atmosphere on the Festwiese, the fair grounds. Without doubt, the “Gaubodenvolksfest“ is one of Bavaria?s oldest and most popular festivals. Zundapp had tremendous success in the 30s with the K series of bikes, the smallest of which was 200cc, and the largest of which was the Zundapp K800. This specific Zundapp K800 (VIN: 183900) was brought to the US in 1990 after it had spent time in a museum in Nuremberg, Germany.

There is no better way to get to know Germany and its people than whiling away a few hours (or days) at local wine festivals. Winding rivers, steep hillsides and medieval castle ruins characterize the various regions and their wine towns. A direct high-speed rail connection from Frankfurt to Basel is available, as well as the local Black Forest Bahn, which offers views of the Black Forest hills and villages.
In honor of the show, Koblenz opened a new winery at the Fortress Ehrenbreitstein, which boasts not only wines from the region, but also offers a history of the 2,000 years of wine-making in the Rhineland Pfalz. It's easy to while away a few afternoon hours in Mainza€™s wine market at the cathedral square. You can wend your way from stand to stand trying different wines, enjoy music and peruse the crafts for sale. The oldest winery is the Vereinigte Hospitien, where you can still see the wall of the original Roman storehouse. Known for its ornate and elaborate casino, beautiful spa buildings and hotels, elegant streets and antique galleries, Wiesbaden is a prime starting point to explore the Rheingau. The wines of Franconia are outstanding and one place to enjoy them is in Wuerzburga€™s Residenz (castle). These range from the finest wines to light and zesty summer wines, with wines from alternative grape varieties being offered alongside the dominant Rheingau riesling. The fireworks, the winemakers' procession, the artisan market and all of the happenings on the wine road and at the locales in Old Town as well as the large amusement park are the attractions featured at the Moselle region's largest wine festival. Every year on the last weekend in September this popular wine festival is opened with the ceremonial crowning of the Red Wine Queen.
Enjoy a mix of popular and rare wines, specialties and live-music in the great historical atmosphere in the Old Town of Rothenburg ob der Tauber.
It is celebrated annually around July 26th, which is the name day of Saint Anna’s mother Mary. By successfully balancing tradition and progress, it combines a wholesome mixture of genuine Bavarian life-style and vitality.

The cities are wine epicenters replete with wine bars, tastings, wine routes, overnights and wine walking tours that are especially lively in August and September when the wine harvesting and festivals take place. There is little doubt you will end up in discussion with the people at the next table or with the owner about the harvest or quality of the grapes, this yeara€™s weather and local goings-on.
A typical day is characterized by spending time at the open air market with all of the products from the local farmers and craftspeople, and then enjoying a glass of wine in the Weinhaus Alte Wache with a view of the marketplace activities.
On Saturdays, local farmers bring in an endless stream of regional and seasonal foods and wines that you can try as well as buy in a friendly and relaxed atmosphere. Two tips: The new Hofgut Laubenheimer Hoehe winery, along with the Wine Institute created the Riesling Lounge, where rieslings from each of Germanya€™s 13 wine-producing regions are offered. The wine producer Bischoefliche Weingueter can be found underground in the center of Trier; most tourists dona€™t realize as they walk through the pedestrian zone in the central city that a famous wine cellar lies beneath them.
The State Winery of Hessen in Eberbach, a former Cistercian monastery, is one such example, and it is also worthwhile to take the tour and a tasting at Henkel, the famous producer of sparkling wine.
It is no coincidence that the festival lasts 11 days, because so much time is needed to taste all the wines offered. And, before you know it, you have made some nice acquaintances, learned some German, soaked up the atmosphere and tried some wines that you might never find outside Germany. The Landmann Winery is particularly notable for its organic wines and the local wine festival from September 2 to September 9 is a particularly festive time. The well-known brand of Deinhard offers tastings of sparkling wine in the middle of the old city and the Weinbar Gerhards wine cellar and bar can be found nearby. The Bar Weinsinnig is where you can get a sense of the regiona€™s great variety, as the list of wines offered changes daily. In November Freiburg hosts the Plaza Culinaria, a culinary trade fair with many local products from Freiburga€™s partner cities.
