How to make First Grader's Schultüte, Candy Cone
Colorful School Cones, filled with small gifts and candy, help make that first school day even more memorable for first graders in Germany. A custom that began in the early 19th century, Schultüten are as popular as ever and could be a fun idea and new tradition for your own family and friends.

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, it is a "fruit salad with a difference", and a menu favorite even in upscale restaurants.

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

Grilled Fish on a Stick,
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.

Germany's Garden Gnomes, Gartenzwerge
Garden gnomes belong to Germany like Bratwurst and Fußball-soccer. Gartenzwerge disappear in the fall, re-appear with spring and spend summer protecting German gardens; kitsch, folklore, good luck symbols and for a protector about as far from frightening as it is possible to be.

Forest Schools, Germany's Waldkindergarten
Waldkindergarten...nature's preschool for children where classroom walls are replaced by fresh air, the natural world and exploration. Whatever the weather. A system of education that began in 19th century Germany and is increasingly popular, so schools have long waiting lists.
