Münster’s city gets ready for the Send, their largest fair which takes place three times a year. There are lots of fun activities, hundreds of rides, stalls and a great culinary choice, too. Be sure not to miss the closing fireworks. The next Send takes place 25-29 October 2012. The Mövenpick in Münster is a five-minute walk from all the happenings, so it’s a great place to stay while visiting the fair.
Nuremberg has also got numerous events going on year round. The best one coming up is the historic city festival (Altstadtfest) which takes place every year in September. Entrance is for free and there are parades, music, food and drink, locals dressed in traditional costumes and challenges on water where fishermen try to knock each other off their boats. Also don’t miss the opportunity to try some of the 60 types of beer at this festival that takes place from 13 to 24 September 2012.
Moving on into the winter months, Munich is known for its great Winter Market at Munich Airport that will definitely get you into that Christmassy feeling. Try yummy gingerbread, sing along to favourite Christmas tunes or try your ice skating skills on the ice rink. It’s also not far from the Mövenpick Munich and there’s a shuttle bus that will take you there for fantastic Christmas shopping.
