Germany's many festivals learn about the dates of each

Before planning a trip around a festival, verify the festival dates on the festival's website or with a local tourist information office. For more information about these and other events, visit the official tourism site for Germany.
With more than 10,000 German festivals, including some of the world’s biggest and strangest, Germany is certainly a place sagacious souls can appreciate. From the raucous parties of Karneval and German music festivals to the acclaimed Berlinale film festival or the famous German Christmas markets, there are German celebrations for all tastes and ages.

Some of the traditional festivals in Germany include Bayreuth’s Richard Wagner music festival, Munich’s restrained commemoration of beer, Oktoberfest, the world’s largest trade fair for books in Frankfurt and the Munich Opera Festival.

Since the mid-1980s, however, there has been a rapid expansion of new, more niche-market festivals in Germany. Night owls and museum geeks can revel together during Berlin’s Long Night of the Museums, an evening when the city’s museums and cultural institutions stay open into early hours. Fans of avant-garde film can fill their heads with new, esoteric anecdotes at Videonale, Bonn’s German festival for art and experimental videos. Even secret Dungeons and Dragons lovers can find a home at Bavaria’s medieval re-enactment festival Festival-Medieval. This is also alongside a world-class range of German music festivals, some receiving thousands of international visitors.
