Today in Friedrichshafen on Lake Constance, the annual children’s festival starts. When retrieving childhood memories of Seehasenfest in Friedrichshafen, it has always either been super hot, or it rained. Honestly, I can’t even remember one year with something in-between. Typically in mid-July, Seehasenfest takes place in Friedrichshafen since 1949, a loved event since decades! Carousels small and big, fast and slow, booths selling sweets and grilled goods, music, beer gardens, various sports competitions so much more, it’s just a blast for kids, and adults even so.

The whole event starts on Thursday at 4 pm with the opening of the amusement park near the ferry harbour. It is followed by the official opening ceremony beginning at 5 pm at the smaller gondola port of the city, with a traditional drumming concert. However, the real highlight is the big firework on the Seehasen-Saturday – currently, the weather forecast predicts rain, we’ll see if it actually happens… Anyway, you can find more about all the events happening during Seehasenfest 2019 on the following website: (unfortunately there is no English version available)
