In Germany, September marks the end of summer. You will have the occasional warm day, but it can get chilly in the evenings, the leaves will start falling, and fall is just around the corner. Germans celebrate the end of summer with a grill- or patio party. You do not have to spend a fortune on food and drinks to have a successful party. Typical party food would include simple dishes, such as meatballs (Frikadellen), grilled sausage (Bratwurst), potato salad (Kartoffelsalat), pickled gherkins (saure Gurken), bread rolls (Broetchen) with cold cuts and cheese (Aufschnitt), and some soda for the kids, plus beer and wine for the adults.
