An Afternoon at the Buschenschank
Last Saturday I spent the afternoon with a friend at a "Buschenschank" in the 19th district. A "Buschenschank" is a wine-tavern, where the winegrower serves his own wine, apple cider and fruit juices and a limited selection of cold food. While the wine and the non-alcoholic beverages are served to the tables, you have to get the food at a self-service buffet. A "Buschenschank" can only be open a certain amount of time a year and indicates that guests are welcome by hanging a couple of conifer or fir twigs a the entrance door.
