August 29th, 2008 – by: dahling
here are the Opening hours for this year:
Fr., 29.08.2007, 15.00 – 01.00 Uhr
Sa., 30.08.2007, 11.00 – 01.00 Uhr
So., 31.08.2007, 11.00 – 24.00 Uhr
the link for the agenda will be:
but so far it still shows the agenda from last year and ALSO it is only in German - but if you take a look it gives you an idea of how much is really going on.
Anyways, now here from 2007. There were 28 stages with different music, shows, traditional dances and dance possibilities.
On the upper level of the shore you will find all the little vendors with handcrafted items, little nicknacks and all those other things, noone really needs, but are always good as a souvenier or typical take home gift.
Now for the people that appreciate a little less action:
During the Fest you can purchase a museums button for €4 (it was in 2007) and it gives you unlimited access to all the museums on the museum shore during the 3 days.
This is especially great for when it is raining.
Also during the Fest they have extra Night busses, so even if you stay a little out of town, you will get home no problem. If you think 1am the night is still too young, right on the corner of the Fest is the old part of town "Sachsenhausen" were you will find one cozy pub next to another most of them open till 4 or 5 during the Fest. Depending on how many customers they get.
The only thing is - leave your car out of the city, unless you really know your way around. Frankfurt is so full of one-ways, that you can manage to drive around a circle for ten minuted before finding a way back out and figuring out where you started out at.
The highlight of the whole thing is a firework on Sunday, so far every year at 22.30 hrs. Also the dragonboat races are very popular. So far it has always been very, very nice, if you get a chance to see it. last year there were 3 million people at the Fest, which is one of the biggest ones in Europe.
I will post the agenda, as soon as it comes out.
Of course we will plan in a sight seeing tour for the interested ones as well as a typical Frankfurt dinner at a "Applewine Stubb"
If we find enough people interested we can also take the Ebbelwoi Express for a tour around Frankfurt - a neat little tram that passes the important sights and gives you an idea of the city, while you can enjoy the applewine or juice. (lookie here: http://www.ebbelwei-express.com/ )
So, think about it, if you would like to come and we can be of any help, contact me or Ana (anamorenoramos) we will glad to help out.
