Last weekend one of the oldest festivals took place near Berlin, in a small city called Werden. The festival originated in 1879, and since then is widely celebrated by German folk. The name of the festival is Baumblütenfest, which can be translated as “blooming of the trees”.

Indeed, there is no better date for spring arrival and blooming celebration than on 25th of April, when everything is covered in blossoms, people are wearing shorts and are getting away from the big city. Every celebration cannot be commemorated without a bottle of home-made wine.
This is how the 136th Baumblütenfest went on –  private wine producers were selling their goods just in the front yard. We have never seen that much variety of wine – dark sambucus wine, raspberry, strawberry, classic apple wine and even rheum wine. A great variety to taste!
The festival featured not only a range of wine stalls, but also stalls full of different food, meat, pastry and more. An amusement park was set up on the shore of the river, and the main events took place on a small island, where one could take a boat for a ride or simply sit on grass and drink wine with friends.
We offer some photos to imbue the atmosphere which dominated on the festival.
