Play games and sample beer and wine at Kohlfahrt, a traditional German cabbage walk. End the journey through the snowy trails of the Nature Center and Historic Village streets with a hearty, Grünkohlessen German meal in the heated Banquet Center.
A typical Kohlfahrt experience starts with a walk (fahrt) through winter landscapes, with frequent stops for silly games — including a Brussel sprout shooting competition! Many more new games have been added this year, such as a cabbage relay! A group “booze wagen” provides sips of German beer, wine, cider, Schnapps, and non-alcoholic drinks along the way. You'll compete to gain the title of "Kale King" or "Kale Queen!"
In this off-season tribute to cabbage (kohl), each participant is provided with his/her own tasting necklace sporting a miniature beer mug that can be engaged at every opportunity. And laughter is a prime ingredient!
Then, after all that outdoor exercise, the Kohlfahrt culminates with a hearty sit-down, German-style meal of sausages, brats, smoked ham, bacon-simmered kale, sauerkraut, Dampfkartoffeln, and apple strudel for dessert.
Adventures depart every 15 minutes from 1:30pm-4:00pm on Saturday and 1:30pm-3:00pm on Sunday, each with a group of 12 people.
Tours are approximately two hours long with dinner served afterwards.
