On Saturday 20th July from 11am, the 2018 Zell Long Table (”Zeller Lange Tafel”) kicks off.
As the name suggests, a 400 metre long table runs the entire length of Balduinstraße (which is the main shopping street of the town) at which local cafes, bars, restaurants and even shops serve up various food specialities and of course copious amounts of local wine.
A host of events take place throughout the day. Of course, most will be in German, but the people are friendly and the atmosphere is great. The programme is as follows:
11am – Official opening.
12am – Tour for children followed by spaghetti making and painting competition. Meeting point is the Schwartze Katz fountain. Ends at around 2pm.
5pm & 7pm – Performances of the play ”Zeller Schwarze Katz” by the laymen of the town hall. The play (in German but still entertaining) tells the story of how the town’s wine was named.
10pm – Lantern walk and cellar tour of the Zeller Kelterhaus. Meeting point at the Schwartze Katz fountain.
There will also be live and disco music.
