I visited Spreewald with extended family a couple of years ago, and I must confess I wasn’t really impressed by the pickles. I thought they were quite average and I’ve definitely had better pickles in my life.

Looking at your picture I finally realized I missed the point by miles, if not lightyears. I officially envy you tonight! ;)

Don’t repeat my mistake! If you ever find yourself in a foreign land and don’t quite like the pickles natives say are the best, just look at what kinds of food and drinks natives consume them with. East of Wisla that would be black bread and vodka (or local moonshine), hence my confusion about Spreewald pickles.
