Everyone knows them, everyone has at least one lasting memory of them: the water cottages, Büdchen, drinking halls or kiosks. Whatever you call them, one thing is indisputable: the Wasserhäuschen are as much a part of Frankfurt and its surroundings as the Ginnheimer Spargel, the Zeil or the Grüne Soße. Even though more and more of the little shops have had to close down in recent years, there are still numerous Büdchen of all kinds in Frankfurt and the surrounding area, which are sometimes used in a very traditional way, or in an original way. It is nice that this tradition is maintained, because Trinkhallen simply belong to the cityscape, are a self-image that many often no longer even notice.
To honor this Frankfurt cultural asset, the organization LINIE 11 and allesgude.de, who are working hard to preserve and revive the water house culture in Frankfurt, are planning the 1st Frankfurt Water House Day. On August 19, there will be great events and festivities around as many water huts as possible, celebrating not only the water huts but also their operators. Whether music, exhibitions by local artists, readings or sports tournaments - the main thing is to celebrate together around a Water Cottage. At the moment, the planning is in full swing and if enough people can be found who want to join in on this day, then the 1st Frankfurt Water Cottage Day can actually take place on 19.08.2017. Anyone who has an idea or wants to participate, you can get in touch HERE.
For anyone who as a child after school at the next Büdchen bought a sweet bag or the latest collectible pictures, who has ever in a water hut even after closing time got the one or the other important little thing or who simply meets with friends for a cool beer or a coffee in front of a drinking hall, may therefore already look forward to this day of celebration.
