Handorf is the most famous town near Adelaide and the oldest German immigrant settlement in Australia.
As soon as you walk into the main street of the town, you will be attracted by the strong German style that comes to the fore. It has German-style sandstone buildings, European trees, and mellow fragrances from half-filled barrels. The scenery of the
Handdorf German Village is not at all like Australia. It adds a touch of exoticism to South Australia. This contrast has brought many surprises.
The third time I came to Hahndorf, a century-old German town in South Australia's Adelaide classic tour. Although there is no such thing as the drunken autumn maple leaves, the winter Hahndorf is particularly quiet and leisurely ~
Herdorf German Village of Hahndorf, Australia's oldest surviving immigrant, a famous South Australia Small town. It is said that in 1839, the first group of German immigrants from Deutsche Prussia took the family to the South Australia and settled here. The name of the town of Handorf is named after their leader, Hahn, who has been named for more than 170 years.
When our country is still in spring and summer, South Australia is the opposite of the autumn season, located in the suburb of Adelaide, only 20 minutes drive from the city center, and the car is full of German style. Attracted. Walking on the streets of Handorf, there is an illusion in the blink of an eye that I am coming to Germany instead of Australia. There are many small shops along the street, selling souvenirs with German or Australian characteristics, exquisite antiques, handicrafts and specialties, as well as colorful candy that attracts many girls. The decoration of each store is very hard, there are quaint, idyllic, full of German style, there are many warm little family, but also a variety of styles.
Of course, come to Handorf to taste the authentic German cuisine, the pure taste of German smoked sausage, beer and roast trotters, absolutely Bavarian flavor. After a full meal, you can order a cup of coffee, sit by the window, enjoy the view from the window, listen to the slow shake in the store, and feel the German atmosphere of this quiet town.
Feel another exotic style in a foreign land. Is it your longing for life?
Hahndorf is located in the Adelaide Hills and is Australia's oldest surviving German immigrant. Walking through the streets of the town of more than 170 years of history, there is an illusion of Europe. Many buildings still retain the style of a hundred years ago, and the windows of various art shops are also unique.
The traditional German meal at the Hahndorf Inn in the Handorfer Bar Restaurant is also worth a try. Pork knuckles, sausages and beer are definitely the mainstays.
Handorf is a travel destination that is chosen by almost every self-driving South Australian traveler. It is well known because of its unique blend of Australian and German. When the rural style of South Australia encounters German-style beer and smoked sausages, it naturally collides with a different spark. In 1839, immigrants from the eastern provinces of Prussia lived in the German village of Handdorf, Australia, and now the entire town has been completely Germanized. German architecture, food, and what it sees can be embarrassing. Is it Australia or Germany?
Walk in the town of Handdorf, the extra lightness of the footsteps, I even have the illusion of time and space intertwined, repeatedly asking if this is Australia? How is it so small and fresh? The town is not big, but the scenery is extremely beautiful. The roadside is full of flowers, and the path of the tree-lined path is lined with authentic Germanic sandstone buildings, which are very German. The bakery and sausage shop on the main street are filled with strong German flavor, and many of the buildings on the street still retain the style of a hundred years ago. This is the town I am longing for.
