Sektfest in Eltville

This weekend we had the "Sektfest" (sparkling wine/champagne festival) in Eltville. On the right you can see a stand from one of Eltville's large sparkling wine producers. The weather was perfect for the festival - mild warm summer night!

Some details that might be interesting for you:
  • In Germany, you're allowed to drink alcohol in public (no paperbag needed).
  • The music played until 12:30 am and most of the younger people get to the festivals between 9 and 10 pm. There are also things happening during the day, but the party happens at night.
  • To drink alcohol in public, you must be at least 18 years old in Germany or have your parents (or someone responsible) with you.
