If you happen to be passing through Witikon on Saturday there is a “Dorf Markt”market taking place from 9am – 4pm with lots of stalls featuring diverse products and specialities.
The weekend weather forecast is for warm and sunny temperatures – so you may even fancy a dip in one of the Badis before they start closing for the season from next week onwards.
