Strawberries - why don't you pick them yourself?

Enjoy some nice time outside and sample them while picking (this is a must :-)

Who doesn’t love berries & flowers?


Strawberries (as well as asparagus) are everywhere  from the middle of May/ June - depending on the weather.
You can buy them at the various little huts along the streets, but why don’t you go and pick them yourself?
Enjoy a fun and relaxing day outside with sunscreen and a hat or rainboots - depending on the weather.
But not only strawbeeries are on offer. Depending on the farm also black & red currants and gooseberries. Don’t forget to bring your own containers - you pay by weight minus the container weight of course.

Flower Fields

Mid of June also start looking out for the flower fields – here you can cut flowers yourself and based on trust you just put the cash in the little box at the entrance.

Also most of farms have a farm shop usually with local and organic produce.

What to do with all the berries?

We love them in cakes, jams and just as snacks. We love them with cream or ice cream or if you prefer more low fat with yogurt or Quark. As for cakes there are premade sponge cake bottoms which can be bought at supermarkets - you just add vanilla pudding, then the strawberries  & a red glaze - done!
Also jams are easily made with Gelierzucker to be bought in each supermarket - you can also add a flavor of your choice like Vanilla.

Just use them quickly as they do not have along shelf live.

Where to buy/pick them?

Although most of the websites are in German, you can figure out opening times (Öffnungszeiten) and what is on offer with some basic German words.
Most of the strawberry fields are also open on a Saturday, Sunday and National holidays.

Here are just a few, but you can find them everywhere -  just look around - there are always signs pointing them out
