The number and range of festivals in Germany is huge. There are around 10,000 held annually. Some are traditional, having originated hundreds of years ago such as Munich’s Oktoberfest and the Bayreuth Festival — which celebrates the works of Richard Wagner. Many others are fairly recent and have been started to either increase tourism, or simply to give local people something to do. You can tour museums by night, watch experimental short films, or for Game of Thrones fans, how about a medieval re-enactment of a battle?
Wouldn’t it be great though, to experience some of these festivals like a local? Well even if you don’t have friends and family in Munich— it’s still possible using Withlocals. You can find people who have the inside knowledge on the best festivals, no matter what your interests.
Always remember to verify the dates of a particular festival if you want to build a tour around it, as some change year to year, and the Oktoberfest, doesn’t begin in October.
