"Where the real hop is grown" Day Trip - Hopfenland - Hop Country Tip by skogsgurra

  Hop cones
by skogsgurra

This is not something that you must see. It is more what you may want to see. If you have a car available. Or a friend with a car.

The surroundings are "Hopfenland" or "hop country". We are fascinated by these immense fields of high poles with strings where the hop plants climb like grape vines - only so much higher.

There are also flower fields with lots of different flowers that you can pick and put a Euro or two in a little box close to the field.

It is a very different experience. Refreshing and (we think) good for you.

Address: Munich surroundings.
Directions: Go north. Direction Nuremberg. Stop when you see those high poles. No use go there after harvest. July - August are good months.
