Anyone up for Konstanz Oktoberfest this year? Shall we faithfully keep up with our tradition and pay a 5th consecutive visit to the region of the Bodensee (i.e. Lake Konstanz)?

The idea is to have a new journey to Konstanz, on the penultimate weekend of September.

As with every year, main target of the trip is the historical and wacky town of Konstanz: the town, which boasts as landmark the revolving 9mt tall statue of prostitute Imperia, came out unscathed from WWII bombings and therefore offers a welcoming town center, with bizarre fountains. Its Oktoberfest is also very entertaining: if we're as lucky as in the past years, we'll have a fun evening.

The plan in short: have a walk in Konstanz on Saturday, then dine&party under the Oktoberfest tents.

The Sunday plan will depend on the forecast and on how many we are, the rough idea is to have a 2 hour hike on the mountains nearby. After visiting the Hegau volcanoes, the Salem storks and monkeys and treading St James's way in Sipplingen and Beuron, this year we might head to Stockach and walk along the Stockach-Ludwigshafen trail, which is another bit of St James's route, that ultimately leads to Santiago de Compostela.

If you plan on coming by train, try to buy your ticket in advance and you'll save plenty of euros (you don't need to buy Singen-Konstanz in advance, as the price is always the same).
