Food and wine festivals are great and allow you to see and taste delicious finished products, but have you ever wanted to know more about where your food comes from and how it’s grown? If so, then Fruchtwelt Bodensee in the German city of Friedrichshafen is the place for you.
From February 21st to 23rd, this trade fair of European fruit producers, agricultural farmers, hobby brewers, and distillers is open to the public. Tickets cost 10 Euros (EUR) for a one-day pass, or 18 EUR for a two-day pass.
“Two trade fairs, one date: The concurrent meeting of fruit producers and farmers at the fairground in Friedrichshafen enters its fourth round. From 21 to 23 February 2014, representatives of the fruit cultivation and agriculture industries will meet up at the FRUCHTWELT BODENSEE and the agrarwelt to exchange information on current topics. The 35th Lake Constance Fruit Cultivation Days (“Bodensee-Obstbautage”) will once again supplement the activities on offer at the FRUCHTWELT BODENSEE with a diverse range of lectures.
Every two years, both trade fairs provide an international communication and information platform to their visitors. In 2012, some 16,700 fruit producers, agricultural farmers, hobby brewers and distillers from across Europe came to Friedrichshafen to gain information about products and services at the exhibitor stands. The number of visitors, which remains stable at a high level, the high-quality offer and the high international contingent of trade experts all confirm: This trade fair duo has developed into a fixed industry meeting point.
The international trade fair for fruit, berries, hops and distillation informs visitors about the latest developments and products in the areas of fruit cultivation, distilling, harvesting machines, plant protection and tree nurseries and presents offers for home and hobby brewers. With its overlapping thematic areas, the agrarwelt represents an effective supplement to the FRUCHTWELT BODENSEE. This fair focuses on topics such as bio-energy, the regional cultural landscape and agricultural technology.”
