The weather’s been nice enough for beer garden visits for months now, but I tend to think of the kick-off of the Maidult (Regensburg’s Spring Festival) as the true opening of the season. Yesterday, pleased to be able to get out of work at a reasonable time, I zipped home on my bike, changed my clothes, and we headed out into the street to watch the parade of local clubs marching onto our island toward the Dultplatz. Then it was just a few steps further over to the Spitalgarten for dinner.
I’m not sure what the deal with the Zombie Bride & Groom was, or what their association with Regensburg’s Youth Wind Ensemble was.
All ages of Trachten-wearers were represented.
Yesterday evening was just about perfect: about 75°F, with a light breeze to keep the heat from the sun from building up. Today, however, is a completely different story: cold, rainy, blustery. Take advantage of good beer garden days whenever you can!
