6 German folk festivals besides Oktoberfest

folk festival, oktoberfest, germany

The Oktoberfest in Munich is the biggest folk festival in Germany and it’s the most famous fair in the world. That’s why this folk festival goes beyond the borders of Germany. For instance, only in the United States there are over 100 copies of the original German Oktoberfest taking place. Meanwhile, there is even in China an Oktoberfest in the city called Qingdao Allegedly, the Oktoberfest in Cincinnati, called “Oktoberfest Zinzinnati” ist the best of all US copies. I’ve never been in Cincinnati and I cannot compare it with the German original. And if I even would have been in Cincinnati, I could not compare it because I never went to the Oktoberfest in Munich. The reason for that is, that to me as a German, Oktoberfest is nothing special because there a lot of folk festivals spreading across Germany. Actually, almost every German town and city has its own fair. Therefore, I would like to introduce to you some other famous folk festivals in Germany which are at least as good as Oktoberfest.

Traveling by train in Germany

The Germans have different opinions about the German railway company, called Deutsche Bahn [dɔʏtʃə ba:n]. A lot of them love to travel with the “Bahn”, how it’s called in Germany. On the other hand, a lot of people  cursing it as unpunctual, as dirty, with bad service, and with a fare system which nobody understands. But in defence of the Deutsche Bahn I need to say that the Germans tend to complain and to grumble often. That’s why we in Germany have a saying, that the Germans have a so-called “whining gene”. Besides that, opinions are very subjective, and if you consider it more objectively, you will find that to travel by train in Germany is not as bad as it’s been told. I’ve been traveling for a couple of years  by train across Germany and had mostly good experiences. In this article I’d like to give you some information about traveling by train in Germany.

How to get to Bruges from Brussels airport?

Bruges is a town in Flanders, the northern part of Belgium. The closest airport to Bruges is Brussels Airport, which is located approximately 110 km to the east of Bruges. Therefore, the best way to get to Bruges is to hire private car transfer service at Brussels airport. The service offers a large choice of vehicles for travellers. So travellers can choose from a small car to spacious estates. There are cars to suit everyone at Brussels Airport. Mini and compact cars are perfect if you want something practical to get around the city. After booking the service, the diver will personally pick you up and drive you straight from Brussels airport to Bruges*. The driver will be happy to recommend you some of the best restaurants or hotels in town or answer any other question concerning your stay in Bruges.
