Type of event : Tradition
Every year on the 3rd Sunday in October, the traditional Hunnefeier takes place in Schengen, marking the end of the annual grape harvest.
The old custom of the "Hunnefeier" comes from the fact that in earlier times, on the last day of the harvest, at the end of the rows of vines, which were the last to be read, a live rooster was tied up. The grape reader, who was the first to read his series and thus finished the grape harvest, was awarded the prize for his speed.
Visitors will arrive from all over the Greater Region, limitless to Schengen.
The "Syndicat d'Initiative Schengen", local clubs, wineries and volunteers, put together a colorful family program.
