Gather your most adventurous friends!

Play games and sample beer and wine at Kohlfahrt, a traditional German cabbage walk. End the journey through the snowy trails of the Nature Center and Historic Village streets with a hearty, Grünkohlessen German meal in the heated Banquet Center.

A typical Kohlfahrt experience starts with a walk (fahrt) through winter landscapes, with frequent stops for silly games — including a Brussel sprout shooting competition! Many more new games have been added this year, such as a cabbage relay! A group “booze wagen” provides sips of German beer, wine, cider, and non-alcoholic drinks along the way. You'll compete to gain the title of "Kale King" or "Kale Queen!"

In this off-season tribute to cabbage (kohl), each participant is provided with his/her own tasting necklace sporting a miniature beer mug that can be engaged at every opportunity. And laughter is a prime ingredient!

Then, after all that outdoor exercise, the Kohlfahrt culminates with a hearty sit-down, German-style meal of sausages, brats, smoked ham, bacon-simmered kale, sauerkraut, Dampfkartoffeln, and apple strudel for dessert.

 This event is adults only, 21+. Please bring ID. Reservations are required and non-refundable.

Adventures depart every 15 minutes, each with a group of 12 people.

Tours are approximately two hours long with dinner served afterwards.

Check-in begins in the Banquet Center beginning at 1pm. Please arrive 15 minutes before your tour is scheduled to depart.

A stocked "booze wagen" is included for each tour group, as is a beverage tasting necklace for each person. Beer, wine, cider, schnapps, and non-alcoholic beverages are available.

Compete for the title of "Kale King" or "Kale Queen!"

Tickets are $70 for the public or $63 museum members. Group discount for a full tour of 12 people: $63/person. Call (585) 294-8218 to book a full group.
