About the tour
From March to June, during the harvest months, gourmets are lured into forests and meadows – always following their noses and the intense smell of garlic.
Belonging to the allium family, wild garlic grows there in large families. Once it has become native, it likes to spread luxuriantly. Time for a walk, filled with health, as we deal with the garlic-smelling plant.
Wild garlic is an ancient medicinal plant that was already used wisely in the Stone Age. It is our power plant for the winter-sluggish organism: essential oils, iron, vitamin C and lots of flavour.
Wild garlic is healthy and tasty – but only if you actually pick wild garlic when you collect it. Because the perennial has several dangerous doubels.
On the wild garlic excursion we are travelling through the old floodplains of the Rhine. Along the way, many other spring bloomers accompany us. And at the place where the allium grows in variety, you can not only take home a lot of wild garlic, there is also a freshly prepared wild garlic snack to taste – it will get you fit for the spring!
Here you will find a few delicious wild garlic recipes:
