At the City Center
We went to downtown Weinfelden, here is the market place, a hall way with different stalls along our way to the other side of this commercial stablishment. Weinfelden is a small town, there is no big shopping center...although there are some good boutiques, supermarkets and stores and a market place like this.
A Swiss grill experience on the hill
Grill is very common in summer time, but this time we had a swiss way experience hosted by a family friend. It was done at their backyard, the hill side. That was yummy, and with the temperature of 34 degrees celcius Hot!
A fruit tree outside home
Most of the houses in Weinfelden has their own fruit tree...it's in front of their house, backyard, both sides and can be everywhere. This one was from the neighbor, this is a kind of Pear although it was an apple but I was wrong...It's a Pear!
If you own an Apple Farm, It should be a lot of work like harvest two times a year..( if I'm correct ) plus maintaining the Field and production.
I have tasted their own Apple juice..my daily fruit juice, also apple champagne and apple beer that Walter make.

"The Swiss Apple Paradise"
Weinfelden is situated in Thurgau Province of Switzerland very known as Land of Apples. It was my first time here, an invitation to visit Weinfelden 3 years ago from a family friend in Philippines who lives here many years and got married to Swiss.
Weinfelden is 20 kilometers away from Constance and the Bodensee, very close to the German border...It is surrounded by huge Apples fields being the major product. Weinfelden and the province of Thurgao has no mountains...this is said to be the only part of Switzerland where you cannot find mountains but only few hills.
"The Swiss-Filipino hospitality"
I would like to dedicate this page to family MARTI who gave us a first class treatment for 4 days stay in Weinfelden. It was a wonderful unforgetable first time in your place, superb!.....Those Apples! yes, they have their own hectares of apples, a Chicken Farm, a Tourist bus, which we got a free tour to the mountain side of Switzerland from Weinfelden....It was a great experience having a private 4star tourist bus with only 8 persons of us as passengers.
"The Apple Farm...."
I was in the Farm, Carmen drove and showed her apple plantation. They have 4 types of apples and indeed! lots of work during harvest but according to her you won't get bored working and picking because you won't be alone and it can be a group of people.....after the harvest time, they have a big apple party as a tradition.
