Every Summer since Protected content , Esslingen area residents, known as Zwiebeln (Onions) or Zwieblinger, along with tourists, gather to taste culinary specialties from local restaurants.

According to legend, Esslingen residents are known as "Onions" because a market woman spotted once the devil in disguise and when he asked her for an apple, she gave him an onion instead. This shocked the devil and prompted him to name Esslingen residents "Onions".

The Zwiebelfest lasts from 3. August to 13. August, but today is the especial Trachtentag, where people are invited to dress with the typical Lederhosen and Dirndl, so it makes it funnier :)

Let´s check out those especialties and enjoy the annual Esslinger Zwiebelfest!
