Market of Roses
The Hintere Gasse with its newly created public square below Hellenstein Castle forms the backdrop of the traditional Market of Roses.
The "Queen of the flowers" reigns over the Hintere Gasse for several days every year in June. Visitors of the centre of the city are enchanted by the wide variety of products centering around the charms of roses of special shops and restaurants. The Market of Roses is a particularly romantic venue, for there are roses of all types and colours on display for table or garden decorations. You can also purchase matching balcony or home accessories like garden sculptures and planters. Perfumes of roses, wines of roses and jewellery made of roses are on offer, too. Internationally renowned products of olives from the landscape of Mani at the Peloponnese are also sold.
