For the year of 2018, it will be held in month of August to October....to attend it; I and my husband super excited !!!!!
After being witness of town verdant, I discovered a wonderful photographer in myself; who is not restricted to only those 'selfies' and captured perfect frames around the town with any angle, though 'the truth' revealed soon that it's not my extraordinary photographic effects but 'simply beautiful' Ingelheim itself.....
A month old residency to 'Ingelheim' led me know about several other aspects of town.
The historical files are inked with name of Ingelheim; by later half era of 8th century, when the Emperor Charles, had an imperial palace erected on hill, high above the Rhein river which was one of the magnificent palace of that time and soon became a venue for imperial diets, lodging and conferences.

Ingelheim's fertile valley just not only famous with Vineyards for red wine but also widely known for high yield of asparagus fields with cherries and plums making this beautiful piece of Deutschland 'an economically impressive town'.
