The Oktoberfest is the world’s largest folk Festival (beer festival and travelling funfair). Held annually in Munich, it is a 16-day folk festival running from mid or late September to the first weekend in October, with more than 6 million people from around the world attending the event every year. Locally, it is often simply called the Wiesn, after the colloquial name of the fairgrounds (Theresienwiese)themselves. The Oktoberfest is an important part of Bavarian culture, having been held since 1810. Other cities across the world also hold Oktoberfest celebrations, modeled after the original Munich event.

How do you like Munich ?
Were you ever at the Oktoberfest ?

In Ulm, around Ulm, and in Ulm around…

Where are you all? This time I made a stop in Ulm.

Ulm is on the Danube at the southeastern edge of the Swabian Alb on the border with Bavaria, the university town in Baden-Württemberg. The city has about 119.000 inhabitants.

The city is known for its gothic cathedral, whose bell tower with 161.53 meters is the highest in the world. But that’s not all…

See by yourself!

One autumn day in Meersburg

This weekend we have decided to go to Meersburg. Meersburg is a town of Baden-Württemberg in the southwest of Germany at the Lake of Constance. It is famous for its charming medieval city.

We love to drive around, always looking for great designs. Especially in autumn the colors are just amazing!

Pleasant weather, warm sunset and a lot of people.

This was the result…

Have fun watching!
