German Bread - Fast Facts
With over 3050 registered varieties, Germany is a "Bread Paradise". Almost all available types of grain are used from wheat, rye, barley and oats to millet, corn, rice and potato starch, while bread rolls go under so many different names in the regions it is easier to just point.

The Day of German Unity
Tag der Deutschen Einheit - German Unity Day, commemorates October 3, 1990, when the German Democratic Republic became part of the Federal Republic of Germany, after the first peaceful revolution in history. For 40 years, from 1949 to 1989, there had been two Germanys. A look back...

German American Heritage
German immigrants to the USA made a huge contribution to its culture, economy and technology. From introducing Santa Claus, founding breweries, popularizing ketchup, producing Presidents to establishing banking, industrial and philanthropic dynasties and designing the Brooklyn Bridge.

Halloween, All Saints and All Souls Day in Germany
Germany's castles might have real "Ghosts", and Witches, the "Forest Goddesses" of pagan times, have returned. But centuries old "All Saints" and "All Souls" Day traditions are as much a part of the season's culture as ever; despite recently introduced "Halloween" and its plastic skeletons.

St. Martin's Day in Germany, November 11
Germany's children bring light and music to Sankt Martinstag, St. Martin's Day. Candle lit lantern processions, singing, a "Weckmann" enjoyed by an open fire. Beginning with church services in his honor often the day ends with "Martinsgans" - But who was St. Martin?

Federweißer, Zwiebelkuchen and Treberwurst
Federweißer might look like grape soda but is a delicious young wine with a KICK and short end of summer season. But its traditional harvest time accompaniments Zwiebelkuchen and Treberwurst, a rich onion pie and sausages marinated with grapes then fried, can be enjoyed at any time of the year.
