Wine Festival in Bad Sulza
Bad Sulza celebrates its wine festival always on the third weekend in August. Celebrated for the first time in 1993, the town festival has by now become a popular tradition in the Weimar area and attracts many visitors from near and far. Visitors will experience an unforgettable weekend. In addition to wine stands of different wineries from the Saale-Unstrut and Ilm-wine-growing area, live music and dance, the festival’s climax is the parade and the election of the Thuringian wine princess. This festival is the only one of its kind in Thuringia. Resident winemakers and restaurateurs present the best wines of the northernmost wine region of Europe. All this is enframed by a colourful programme of musical entertainment. Nature lovers can go on adventurous hikes along the wine trail or the nature trail. Here you can enjoy the view of the vineyards in the impressive Unstruttal. You may finish your tour with a wine tasting and a “Winzervesper” – a rustic meal of hearty ingredients – since, as is well-known, fine wines taste best where they are grown.
Onion Market in Weimar
For three days, Weimar is "on onion": on the cake, in the pan, in the braid, as arrangement, even at the onion market queen’s crown. It’s everywhere. The Weimar onion market is more than 360 years old. The vivid market life is dominated by the Heldrung onion farmers with their onion braids, dried bouquets and decorative onion crafts. The very varied music programme on the five Stages also attracts many visitors: world music, rock, pop, folk music and dixieland are on offer. This highlight always takes place on the second weekend in October.
