Lahr the Fairytale Garden

November 04, 2015  •  Leave a Comment

Last weekend, James and I took a stroll through the historic town of Lahr as they celebrated their “Annual Chrysanthemum Festival” which is deeply rooted in the city’s history.  This year’s theme is fairytale as you see playful dwarves highlighted amongst the abundance of colorful flowers throughout this city center. 

Our favorites are the colorful flowers cascading down from the windows and the Stork Tower or Storchenturm.  We saw Chrysanthemums and many various types of flower arrangements at the historic ruin tower site.  

In addition to the talented street musicians, this festival boasts a diverse cultural program and live music performance at the market square.

Here is this year Lahr's Chrysanthemum Program.

These are some of the photos we captured from our visit.
