De vrolijkste kant
van goede tradities:
Duitslands volksfeesten

Carnaval aan de Rijn, deelstaat-, stads-, markt- en wijnfeesten en de twee grootste volksfeesten ter wereld: als het om het vieren van feesten gaat, kent de afwisseling in Duitsland bijna geen grenzen. Veel van die feesten stoelen op een lange traditie en leveren het overtuigende bewijs dat geschiedenis buitengewoon levendig kan zijn.

The lake's the star at Hannover's Lake Maschsee Festival, with strolls on palm-lined promenades, dance evenings by the water's edge, boat trips and torchlight swimming. Lake Maschsee stretches for 2.4 kilometres and the 19-day programme features some 50 spots around the water as well as free concerts on four big stages. Every year around 1.8 million people lap up the mediterranean atmosphere in the heart of Lower Saxony's capital.

Just like Cologne and Düsseldorf , Mainz is a Rhineland carnival capital. The Mainz carnival procession on Rose Monday stretches for some 6.5 kilometres, making it one of the region's longest. The evening carnival show is broadcast live on German TV. Both events have a strong political streak, and politicians' misadventures are mercilessly satirised. The crazy weekend kicks off with Europe's biggest children's masked parade on Carnival Saturday.

Weimar's Onion Fair is held on the second weekend in October. It is Thuringia's biggest fair and onions are the stars of the show – not merely cooked in flans and soups but also plaited and made into decorations. The atmosphere hots up on the Saturday with a race through the heart of the fair, and there's live music on five large stages for three whole days. Johann Wolfgang von Goethe was apparently a regular visitor to the fair when it was already more than a hundred years old.

Stuttgart Wine Festival is a quiet celebration of Swabian gemütlichkeit – there are no fairground rides and no loud music. Instead, in the heart of the city, 120 stalls decorated with vines serve typical Swabian dishes such as maultaschen (ravioli), kässpätzle (cheese noodles) and ofaschlupfer (sweat bread pudding) along with a range of regional wines. A scaled-down version of Stuttgart Wine Festival has been held in Hamburg every summer since 1986.

On 9 October every year, Leipzig commemorates the peaceful revolution in Germany that led to the fall of the Iron Curtain across Europe with projections, video performances and candles. The Festival of Lights recalls the events of 9 October 1989 when more than 70,000 demonstrators in Leipzig confronted the security forces of East Germany's communist dictatorship with cries of "We are the people!" Through partnerships with other European cities, the festival organisers are highlighting the worldwide importance of those events.

Freestyle canoeists leap into the river with their canoes; inflatable crocodiles and ducks are raced against each other, and dragon boats bring a touch of Chinese charm to the Saar. Unusual water sports events are the hallmark of the Saar Spectacular in Saarbrücken , which attracts some 300,000 visitors every year from Germany and abroad. In the evening there's a free programme of music on two stages, whilst special effects bathe the bridges, the riverbanks and the water in colourful light.

Werder celebrates its tree blossom festival from late April to early May, when the fruit tree blossom is at its peak. The event has put this small town west of Potsdam on the international festival-goers' map. For nine days, around 400 stalls, eight stages and some 50 fairground rides create a wonderful atmosphere in the idyllic old quarter on an island in the Havel, and you can enjoy the beautiful blossom at orchards and fruit farms that open specially for the occasion.
