Schdolz bin isch uf Schriese,

uf soin gude Woi. = I’m proud of Schriesheim and its good wine.

Autumn is the mellower season, and what we lose in flowers we more than gain in fruits.”

  1. My daughter-in-law is from the Mosel area of Germany and the family have vineyards. I think everyone has a vineyard in that area. Everything grows on a slope. My son has also helped out once, but he says you should have one leg shorter that the other for the work. They have green grapes. Germany certainly has its fair share of dialects. The Mosel area where my son’s wife comes from also have a dialect.

    1. The only area in Germany which prides itself in no-dialect is around Hannover – but a) that’s only the case because their dialect is pretty close to standard German pronunciation and b) it’s only pretty close, I think they have dialect, too. 🙂

      1. I attended the EMO in Hannover many years ago working on our Swiss company’s stand and I loved it. I never noticed a dialect. Working at the fair, we were living in with various Hannover families. I noticed there was no difficulty in understanding them. My last boss when I was still working was a Bavarian and I even got that one worked out.
