The rose market in the picturesque village centre invites visitors to browse while rose nurseries provide insights into their work. More than 100,000 roses in all colours, shapes and fragrances can be admired at the rose show. The rose parade, with magnificently decorated floats, is the highlight of the Rose Festival.

Steinfurth Rose Festival – a folk celebration with a long tradition

Steinfurth is the oldest and largest German rose village. Around 1868, the Schultheis brothers began professional rose cultivation in Steinfurth after Heinrich Schultheis learned it in England. Since 1970, the Rose Festival with a grand rose parade has been held every even-numbered year. The enchanting scent of roses fills the air, making a stroll through the rose village a sensory experience. We look forward to welcoming you to Steinfurth's Rose Festival!
