So yesterday, T and I joined his sister and family in Ludwigsburg to check out the local castle. I have a soft spot for European castles so I was very excited about the trip 🙂
It’s a beauty:
What turned out to be a pleasant surprise was the pumpkin festival that was happening out in the gardens. T had expected a few pumpkins here and there but what we saw was art!
Of course almost all the food was pumpkin themed.
Side note: pumpkin in German is Kürbis.
Of course we got some roasted pumpkin seed (with cinnamon and sugar) as well as a pumpkin wine (which we have yet to try)
One other cool aspect about the castle was the “Märchen Garten”
Märchen in German is fairy tale. Throughout this garden there were little houses that were designed to represent different fairy tales:
Overall, it was a big, fun, and pumpkin filled day! Tune in on Wednesday where I spoil my readers with pictures of my dog!
