Germany's Cult Beach Chair, the Strandkorb
The 'Strandkorb' is a strange looking chair. It has been compared to an upright wicker wash basket, was originally designed for an aristocrat with rheumatism, and for generations has not only sheltered German beach goers from wind, rain and sun but also become a part of the country's culture.

Cheese Hedgehog, a Party Snack Recipe
Kaeseigel, the Cheese Hedgehog, a "Retro" party snack from Germany. Enjoying a popular and widespread renaissance it was the ultimate cold buffet food during the 1960's and 1970's, and is now just as likely to be found accompanying a summer BBQ as a snack during winter months.

Germany's Beer Gardens
A visit to a Beer Garden is a 'must' throughout Germany from early Spring through Summer and Autumn. Originally a way of using of the chestnut tree shaded areas covering 19th century underground Bavarian beer storage cellars, they were soon a popular, even fashionable, pastime.

Grilled Fish on a Stick Recipe
Beer Gardens and Oktoberfest in Germany would not be the same without 'Steckerlfisch' for those who like fish and have hunger pangs. It's a Bavarian specialty, a well seasoned grilled fish complete with head, tail and a stick running through it.

Rumtopf, Fruit and Rum Pot, Recipe
Rumtopf, a German specialty from at least the 17th century. Made from late spring until early autumn with seasonal fruit conserved in sugar and rum, it's a treat for the winter months, and indispensable part of "end of year" holiday celebrations. Easy to make, hard to mess up and delicious.

The Rhine River In Flames Festival
Rhein in Flammen is a unique and spectacular annual 'Fire, Water, Light and Culture Festival'. It begins in May, takes place on five spring, summer and autumn days along a beautiful, historic stretch of Germany's Rhine River, and each of the displays has a different theme.
