Nürnberger Volksfeste (Nuremberg Folk Festivals)

April 19 - May 11, 2014

The smell of freshly roasted almonds hangs in the air, beers and lagers foam in their pots, fair rides thunder along narrow curves. Crispy fried chicken, pig roasted over an open fire, fresh fish seasoned and charcoal grilled…. There are as many visitors seeking the enjoyment of good food, and a unique atmosphere, as those seeking the thrills and excitement of the most modern fair rides in all of Franken.
