Herbstmarkt / autumn market

(English version follows below)

In unserem Lieblings-Freilichtmuseum war die ganze letzte Woche Herbstmarkt. Das ist so etwas wie ein fulminantes Finale der Saison, bevor das Museum den Winter über schließt. Eine Woche lang waren knapp 150 Aussteller im vorderen Teil des Museums verteilt und da wir eine Jahreskarte haben, haben wir den Markt ausführlichst genossen. Da gab es aber auch tolle Stände. Wolle, Selbstgenähtes, Obst, Gemüse, Gartenartikel, Dekorationen, Lederarbeiten, Buchbinder, Stempel, Karten, Möbel, Skulpturen, diverse kulinarische Stände angefangen bei Bärlauch über Käse und Marmeladen bis hin zu verschiedensten Sanddornprodukten, Seife und und und….dazu natürlich viele Leckereien, insbesondere das Eiz zur eigenen Zusammenstellung wurde von uns genossen (sehr zu empfehlen: Kaffee-Kakao-Rumkugel und Kirsche-Kokos). Voll war es auch. So voll, dass eine Stunde nach Öffnung schon die ganzen Seitenstreifen an den Landstraßen zugeparkt waren, weil der riesige Parkplatz vor dem Museum komplett besetzt war.

Heute vormittag habe ich dann nochmal die Chance und das gute Wetter genutzt und habe mich auf mein Rad geschwungen und habe mir ganz in Ruhe die noch nicht gesehenen Stände angeschaut. Schön, so ein Herbstmarkt! (Und weil ich hin und zurück knapp 30 Kilometer geradelt bin, konnte ich mir auch mit ruhigem Gewissen wieder einen der diversen kulinarischen Höhepunkte gönnen!)

Before our favorite Open-Air-Museum is closing its gates during the winter, it came up with its annual, big autumn market. During the whole last week, more than 150 exhibitors showed their products in the first half of the museum. As owners of an annual ticket it goes without saying that we were truly enjoying the last week. There were so many beautiful and interesting stalls. Woolen things, homemade clothes, fruits, vegetables, garden products, decorations, leather products, bookbinders, stamps, selfmade stationaries, furnitures, sculptures and not to forget the various culinary stalls selling stuff like wild garlic products, cheese, various jams or sallow thorn products….and of course many treats for the moment (especially the ice-cream that can be individually compiled was one of our favorites….we were especially pleased with the combinations coffee-chocolate-rum truffle and cherry-cocosnut). Apparently, we also weren’t the only ones who truly enjoyed the market: it took less than an hour last weekend until the big parking lot for the museum was packed and the people started parking on both sides along the roads.

This morning, I took the chance and went there again by bike. The sun was shining and I was able to peacefully stroll around the parts that we didn’t manage to see last weekend (there is only so much you can visit with children before there’s the urgent need to go to the playground). Such a nice autumn market! (And because I biked all in all almost 30 kilometers, I felt very much obliged to enjoy the culinary delights again!)

 

About erdhummel

Familial entropy - that's an insight into our current life which has been fundamentally changed last summer when our daughter was born. Having studied in Cottbus, Germany, and worked/studied in Edinburgh, Scotland, we momentarily live in a small town in Switzerland where Karsten is trying to save the environment and Freddie is trying to save our sanity. Since there is not much time for elaborate, long emails while doing that, we thought a blog might be a good option to smuggle ourselves into the lifes of our friends.
