    Zittauer Zwickle

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This was an unexpected but very pleasant surprise: Zittauer's Zwicklebier was lightly filtered with a massive head, somewhat resembling a weizen visually though nothing at all alike in flavor. This light bodied beer was quite hoppy with a clean finish. It was very refreshing and a great compliment to the local dishes we paired it with. It was so good in fact that we rushed off to the local beer store to get some more!

    Demonstrations

    by german_eagle Written Jul 22, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    As you may know the economy is weak in Germany at the moment. Last year the government decided to cut expenses for social security ... the reform was called Hartz IV.

    Demonstrations were starting all over Germany, especially in the East. Soon these demonstrations took place on Mondays - the organising folks (mostly unions and left parties) tried to get the image of successors of the demonstrations which initiated the fall of the wall in 1989. A ridiculous idea.

    Well, this is not the place for debating politics ... I just want to let you know that - surprisingly for me - these demonstrations still take place in Zittau (and probably some other German cities). I happened to be in Zittau on a Monday in July 2005 and did not trust my eyes when I saw about 100 or so people on this (peaceful) demonstration, walking through the city centre and protesting against these reforms.
