Rote Grütze, Germany's Fruit Dessert Recipe
Rote Grütze with summer berries is one of Germany's most popular desserts. Light, refreshing, easy to make and for centuries simple "every day" Hausmannskost, home cooking, in northern Germany. Now it is a "fruit salad with a difference" and menu favorite even in upscale restaurants.

Germany's Cult Beach Chair, the Strandkorb
The "Strandkorb". A strange looking chair often compared to an upright wicker wash basket. It was originally designed for an aristocrat with rheumatism, but has sheltered German beach goers from wind, rain and sun for generations and is now part of the country's culture.

Germany's Fairy Tale Road
By bicycle, car, or of course with seven league boots, the Fairy Tale Road in Germany is a magical journey in the footsteps of Brothers Grimm. Through medieval villages, unspoiled nature and stunning views to a castle filled world of fantasy, sagas, myths and legends.

Germany's Window Boxes and Balcony Gardens
Every change of season means it is "Makeover Time" for Germany's window boxes. Year round colorful plant filled containers are everywhere. Sometimes a bizarre mixture, but a joy to behold on door stoops, window ledges, trailing from apartment block balconies and walls of ancient farm houses.

Germany's Beer Gardens
From early Spring through Summer and Autumn a visit to a Beer Garden is a seasonal "must do" in Germany. Originally a way of using chestnut tree shaded areas that covered 19th century underground Bavarian beer storage cellars, they soon became a popular, even fashionable, pastime.

Grilled Fish on a Stick Recipe
German Beer Gardens and Oktoberfest would not be the same without "Steckerlfisch". It is a Bavarian specialty for anyone who likes fish and has hunger pangs; a well seasoned grilled fish, complete with head, tail and with a stick running through it. And ideal for a BBQ.
