There’s just something comforting about a rustic farming village. A serene place where people aren’t afraid to get their hands dirty in the soil and get back to basics.
Don’t think for one minute that all Leopoldshöhe has to offer is some fresh fruits and veggies at some small vending stand, ’cause nothing could be further from the truth in this town that’s about to turn 1000.
Leopoldshöhe — Top Areas Of Interest
Leopoldshöhe takes great pride in their farming past and their more modern festivals. The Homeland Yard is a wonderful way of showing the family the inner workings of what was once a 15th century farm. Situated right next to the Local History Museum, it’s your chance to get an understanding of how life used to be here 400 years ago.
Be treated to any number of concerts, readings, and lectures held here regularly. Don’t be surprised to see a few blushing brides and nervous grooms at the museum because it’s a very popular site for wedding ceremonies! ;-)
Two of the more popular festivals are the Sunflower Celebration held on the last Sunday in August and the Men’s Singing Celebration held the last Sunday in May. Though technically not a festival the Easter Sunday outside service is celebrated by everyone!
One of the most celebrated festivals is the International Festival where everyone in town gets in on all the festivities. There’s everything from African drums to music from Celtic Highland pipes, plenty of folklore story telling, veil dancing, and best of all: FOOD!
Here’s your chance to try a local specialty called Lippischer Pickert — a small cake made from flour, potatoes, currants, and raisins. The locals eat it warm with some butter or homemade jam.
Guten Appetit! :-)
