From Germany, what are these fruits?

And are they edible?
I didn't dare try, Lol.

Looks very, very much like cherries.
Maybe they're too sour?

Oh, I should've grabbed some. The birds were loving it in the branches.
Thanks,

Either cherry or sour cherry. Impossible to know without tasting it. The tree seems big, so Cherry (Prunus avium) with its stripped bark would be my first option. Maybe a wild "mollar cherry" type. In this case, you can expect more flavour notes than modern varieties (that are basically sugar) and a soft, not crunchy, meat with a pinch of sourness in a smaller fruit.
