Frühlingsvolksfest Nürnberg

17 Apr

To start the festival year off with a bang I recommend that you attend the Volksfest in Nürnberg 19.04.2014 – 11.05.2014. It’s easy to get to and there is an tram stop nearby, get off at the Dokuzentrum stop and follow the crowds.

Think huge funfair, with beer tents, entertainment, food and lederhosen thrown in for good measure. Go with an empty stomach and a little extra cash (you will pay a deposit on your beer of 5 euro, which you will get it back when you return your glass). Check out the programmes for the fest online, there will be different acts on throughout the fest and they could be anything from belly dancers to brass bands to punk bands, there are also usually fireworks on the last night.

Part of the fun of a festival is the food, buy your sweetheart a gingerbread heart, eat a giant pickle, try a Langos, crepe or the famous drei im weckla (three nürnberger sausages in a bun). Frankly the rides scare me to death, and please, approach them with caution after a few beers. I do love the ferris wheel however, its great day or night.

After the Volksfest is over it’s countdown to the Bergkirchweih, do you have your dirndl yet?
