An important international trade fair held annually in Berlin, the first Grüne Woche was held in 1926 following an idea to combine the annual winter meeting of the German Agricultural Society with an agricultural exhibition as a showcase for participants and attendees. The name comes not from green's association with agriculture, but from the green felt coats (Lodenmäntel) traditionally worn by German foresters and farmers.
