Historic German Cities Announce Fall Festivals


Several members of Historical Highlights of Germany's 14 consortium cities—Heidelberg, Münster, Potsdam and Regensburg—are offering numerous activities and festivals for a wide range of travelers. The events include one of Europe’s most extensive and popular jazz festivals—"Enjoy Jazz"—kicking off in Heidelberg, and hosting jazz greats from around the world.

Münster celebrates the fall with the region’s oldest annual "Send" (Fun Fair), serving up an abundance of family-friendly amusements and rides and a full range of culinary specialties; while Potsdam showcases its Harvest Festival, where regional exhibitors offer fresh local produce and handmade products at a castle where Prussian royalty once resided. Regensburg, meanwhile, rolls out its centuries-old Herbstdult festival, with plenty of beer and wine tents, amusement park rides, music and more.
