- a real (wine ) Event

Culture and Wine

Do these two go together ? In the Kaiserstuhl region nothing works without the other. Did you know that the largest Cooperative of Germany is in Breisach as well as the famous Champagne Cellars of Geldermann? You also find there a medieval Cathedral with precious art works. Did you know that here is also the centre of the Pinot Gris (Grey Burgundy Wine) with annual expert meetings? Wouldn't it be advisable to stop for a wine tasting ? Perhaps even on the peak of a vineyard (only in summertime possible !) with a wide view over the former volcanic area which turned into the most beautiful and attractive cultural area in South Germany.
Make your choice - we arrange it for you.
