World of Holler

Holunder. Holder. Elder. Holler.

The elderberry, also known in many places as elder and elderberry, and in northern Germany as lilacberry bush, belongs to the muskweed family. The most common and probably best known in our region is the black elder. It not only likes to grow in the vicinity of people, but has also always been an important food and medical plant. Both its bright white flowers and its dark purple berries are used in the kitchen and medicine cabinet.

Not only delicious, but also extremely healthy.

The mature berries contain many vitamins such as vitamin B1 and B2 as well as vitamin C and important minerals. They therefore not only strengthen the immune system, but also boost the metabolism. Elderberries are often processed into juices and syrup, soup, jam, puree, fruit wine, liqueur or even brandy.

Interesting facts

Who gave the elder its name?

Before she shook the beds in the Grimms' fairytales, Frau Holle was a Germanic mother and goddess of the trees. The legends and myths tell us that she protected plants, animals, house, farm, people and cattle against dark forces, fire and witches. And her favorite tree? The elder, to which she gave her name.

Did you know?

The Celts regarded the elder tree as the black earth goddess Morrigan and also as the goddess of light Brigid. In Sweden, children are told that the goddess can be seen from an elder bush on the night of the summer solstice.
