Guide: Badenfahrt 2017

posted on | updated on | by Zuri Girl

Incase you missed it in our August Events roundup, the Badenfahrt takes place once in an (Expat) lifetime…as this event only takes place every 10 years and lasts 10 days, there’s absolutely no way we are going to miss out even if it means a short train ride to our neighboring town, Baden. With outdoor cinema, live performance acts, concerts, childrens’ activities and more, grab a group of friends and head to the Baden Festival from 18 – 27 August.
