Spiel Fair 2007 Essen

So guys next week is once again the spiel here in essen… anybody from you attending?

Isn’t “Essen” german for “Eating?”

Is the food really good there or something? Odd name for a town!

I googled the origin of the city´s name but the real story is really boring.

So yeah the city is named that way because the food is really good there, especially the sauerkraut and the pretzels.

pretzels in essen? ok you missed it only nearly… go way south to bavaria for pretzels…

They had good schnitzel in Schweinfurt when I was stationed there in the late 70’s early 80’s.
