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 "every day" Hausmannskost, home cooking, in northern Germany. Now a "fruit salad with a difference", it is a menu favorite even in upscale restaurants.

Germany's Window Boxes and Balcony Gardens
It is "Makeover Time" each season for Germany's window boxes. Carefully tended, colorful plant filled containers are everywhere. A bizarre mixture sometimes but a wonderful sight on door stoops, window ledges, trailing down from apartment block balconies and walls of ancient farm houses.

Summer Solstice and Midsummer in Germany
Many of the Summer Solstice and Midsummer Eve festivities in German speaking countries were mystic Pagan and pre-Christian festivals, and fire still plays a major role in celebrating the triumph of sun and light over cold and darkness.

Rumtopf, Fruit and Rum Pot, Recipe
Rumtopf goes back centuries as a delicious way to preserve summer fruit. Starting in early summer with strawberries, cherries and rum of course, with fruit added as it comes into season until early autumn, it's a taste of summer in winter. Easy to make, hard to mess up and delicious.

Germany, Cuckoo Clocks And The Black Forest
Cuckoo Clocks originated in Germany's Black Forest, not Switzerland; an invention using the time, and profiting from, snow filled winter months. Schwarzwald, filled with tradition, unspoiled scenery, Roman health resorts and a fascinating Clock Route.

The Rhine River In Flames Festival
Rhein in Flammen is a unique and spectacular annual "Fire, Water, Light and Culture Festival". The first is in May, then each display has its own theme as it continues for five Spring, Summer and Autumn days along a beautiful, historic stretch of Germany's Rhine River.
