People of Germany: Maibowle party at an equestrian event in Bernkastel-Wittlich, Rheinland-Pfalz, Southwestern Germany. Maibowle aka Maitrank, Maiwein or Waldmeisterbowle, is the name of a German beverage that uses wine as a base. It’s served in spring, traditionally on the May Day holiday on May 1 – today. As usual, there are different versions but, traditionally, the base is made by steeping the fragrant herb woodruff (Galium odoratum, known in Germany as Waldmeister) that grows in the forests of Northern Europe in a white wine. This version of the drink is green. There also is a red version, as seen above, which might use raspberry syrup or strawberries. Ingredients such as brandy, sparkling wine or carbonated water and sugar may be added to flavour the drink and create a punch – hence the name Maibowle. Since strawberries are in season at this time of year, they’re often floated in the drink. The town of Arlon in Belgium has a similar specialty drink. Prost. :)🥂

Ich hab keinen Bausparvertrag, Schweinshaxen müssen nicht sein, ich hab kein Auto und ich besitze keine weißen Socken :D

KEIN AUTO?? *faints In dem Punkt bin ich wohl typisch deutsch. Schweinshaxen dagegen finde ich persönlich ja etwas gruselig… vielleicht nach so 6 Humpen Bier… müsste ich mir erst schöntrinken. 🤣

Ich bin Deutscher und mag weder Bier noch Fußball noch Karneval

Karneval mag ich auch nicht, Fussball nur bei der WM. Hast du einen Bausparvertrag? 😃Magst du Schweinshaxen? Wäscht du jeden Samstag brav dein Auto? Trägst du weisse Socken mit Sandalen?

Inselgeschichten von Amrum – Die Nordstory – NDR

Auf Deutsch, 58 mins. The German North Sea island of Amrum is one of the North Frisian Islands and part of the Nordfriesland district in Schleswig-Holstein. It has ~2,300 inhabitants, is made up of a sandy core of geestland and features an extended beach all along its west coast, facing the open North Sea. The east coast borders to the mud flats and tidal creeks of the Wadden Sea. The sand dunes are a famous part of Amrum’s landscape, resulting in a vegetation that is largely made up of heath and shrubs. The island’s only forest was planted in 1948. Amrum is a refuge for many species of birds and marine mammals like grey seals or harbour porpoises. Settlements have been traced back to the Neolithic age when the area was still a part of the mainland of the Jutland peninsula. During the Middle Ages, Frisian settlers arrived and engaged in salt making and seafaring. A part of the modern population still speaks Öömrang, a dialect of the North Frisian language, and Frisian traditions are kept alive. With the island hosting many endangered species of plants and animals, its soil being largely unfavourable for agriculture, and as a popular seaside resort, Amrum’s population today almost exclusively lives off tourism.
