Even more May weather lights can be found in the lovingly Provencal Lavender Café. Because the salt fountain house is almost transformed into an idyllic gazebo with coffee and cake, which is operated by nature lovers and the AWO.

Herbal fairy, graduation tower and community of artist interests

Herb fairy Petra Sämann invites you to two "wild herb walks" with lots of tips and interesting information for herbal lovers.

The graduation tower is located directly on the market area. On this day - which is also the day of the open museum - the Salzknecht will of course boil salt and report a lot of interesting things about Sulzbach and the salt extraction. The prospect is also open to children during the market.
