The taste of Germany - North Edition

If you want to go on a discovery tour of Germany, the International Green Week is the place to be. Here, visitors can get to know local specialties, traditions and innovations made in Germany. 12 German states will be presenting their local specialties, traditions and, last but not least, delicacies from their region. Here is an overview of the highlights from northern Germany:

Bremen and Bremerhaven

If you look closely while shopping, you will notice - many food products have their production site in Bremen and Bremerhaven. The two-city state is thus literally "on everyone's lips". Bremen and Bremerhaven will be showcasing this diversity from January 20 - 29, 2023 in Hall 20. The Seefischkochstudio from Bremerhaven will be bringing fish and seafood to the table and giving helpful tips on how to prepare it even better at home. For Bremen, 2023 is themed "Genussufer" with a wide variety of pleasures on, in and on the water - with a cool drink in a beach chair, the historic quay market on the river bank or a colorful cardboard boat regatta in the Vegesacker harbor basin.

The exhibitors from Bremen and Bremerhaven can be found in Hall 20.

Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania

In 2023, Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania will participate in the International Green Week for the 30th time with its own state hall. Several districts will be jointly organizing the traditional state day. From the Baltic Sea to the Müritz, visitors to Hall 6.2a can experience the combination of nature, culture and enjoyment with all their senses. Among other things, visitors can taste the "Elephant Gin". A London Dry Gin with an extraordinary aroma, which is produced in traditional handcraft on the Schwechow estate in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, near Hamburg. Schokoladerie de Prie will present organic chocolate, handmade in Rostock and produced directly from the cocoa bean. New at IGW 2023 are MV chocolates - a composition with apple, sea buckthorn and Baltic Sea salt. Those who like something heartier will find it in the game meat from Mecklenburg-Vorpommern. The meat is processed in the traditional manner and refined with spices and local herbs.

The exhibitors from Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania can be found in Hall 6.2a.

Lower Saxony

Lower Saxony stands for culinary and cultural diversity in the middle of Germany. Stretching from the Ems to the Elbe and the North Sea to the Harz mountains, Lower Saxony will present itself at the International Green Week 2023 with a newly designed marketplace - a feel-good meeting place to linger and enjoy. After a discovery tour, exhibitors await visitors with a freshly tapped Schnuckenbräu, kale pan or potato waffles from the potato barn. You won't have to do without a maritime snack in Lower Saxony Hall 20 either - the fish kitchen from Bremen will be contributing it.

You will find the exhibitors from Lower Saxony in Hall 20.
