Another tradition of All Saints is to visit the graves of family and friends, and to bring flowers, greenery arrangements and candles. The cemeteries look wonderful at dusk with all the tiny candles lit!

Yesterday was All Saints, a day celebrated with a lot of local traditions.
One of them is the Allerheiligenstriezel, All Saints sweet bread – it’s a brioche with or without raisins, braided and decorated with sugar and almonds. It’s the traditional present of the godfather for his godchildren on this day – and best enjoyed fresh with butter!
