The apple festival of Guben

In the year of 1995, the tourist association, at that time “Neißeland Guben e.V.”, woke up the annual festival, which goes back to the fruit production of Guben. Since then, the festival is a cultural established tradition for Guben and the surrounding area. The highlight for that weekend is the election of a symbolic figure, the apple queen, who represents the association, Guben and the surroundings everywhere in Germany. Since 2007 the tourist association “Marketing and Tourism Guben e.V.” organizes this traditional and cultural event in cooperation with public services.

A wide ranging program with the topic “apple” awaits each visitor during that weekend. This year’s 18th apple festival from the 1st of September to the 2nd of September 2012 is believed to become an experience for visitors and guests and is also going to enhance the cultural public offer.

"Gubener Warraschke"

Guben was the centre of fruit production in the beginning of the 20th century.
As early as 1880, the gardening society listed 121 different kinds of apples.

At the end of the 19th century the typical domestic strain “Gubener Warraschke” came into existence. This kind of apple can be picked in late October and can be stored and enjoyed until May. Because of the geological environment of Lusatia, that apple is a resistant kind of fruit and is arable broadly. The “Warraschke” apple has a sweet and juicy taste. Even today, this kind of apple can be found in the regional allotment gardens. You can purchase a sapling of a Warraschke apple tree in local gardening firms.

Even today the apples, which are not suitable as dessert fruits, are still used for making fruit wine. During the months of September to November a cider machine, located in the district of Kaltenborn, presses those apples. Just the late fully ripe fruits are suitable for an aromatically and sweet flavour.

The original apple wine is available in the Tourist association located in the Frankfurter Straße 21 in Guben.
