5 Great Beer Festivals in Europe
Just about everyone has heard of the world famous Oktoberfest held every year in the German city of Munich. Lasting for as long as 18 days, the city is packed full of people spending great amounts of money on beer. Another major beer festival in Germany is the Cannstatter Volksfest in Stuttgart. However, if you enjoy trying out a wide variety of different beers while partaking in lively festivities, there are still plenty of other options aside from these most famous ones. Consider the following beer festivals in Europe for example.
Jardin des Plantes :: Paris, France
Situated on the left bank of the River Seine, the Jardin des Plantes is Paris’s primary botanical garden and renowned for its centuries-old beauty. A popular tourist attraction, the garden is also a favorite venue for Parisians. Located on sixty-nine acres, the Jardin des Plantes features many internationally famous gardens, greenhouses, and exhibits.
Warsaw Zoo :: Warsaw, Poland
The Warsaw Zoological Garden, more commonly referred to as the Warsaw Zoo, first opened its doors in 1928. Situated on ninety-nine acres in Warsaw, Poland, the zoo is located on Ratuszowa Street and is an accredited member of the European Association of Zoos and Aquaria as well as the World Association of Zoos.
Tintagel Castle :: Cornwall, United Kingdom
Medieval Cornwall witnessed the construction of a great castle near the historical village of Tintagel. Named for the village, Tintagel Castle was built by one of the wealthiest men of his day, Richard, Earl of Cornwall, who hailed from the House of Plantagenet. Moreover, as the legendary birthplace of King Arthur, the ruins of Tintagel Castle have become a renowned tourist attraction.
Mount Vernon Distillery :: Alexandria, Virginia
In 1798, Washington built a distillery that produced fifty thousand liters of whiskey per year. Today, Mount Vernon is carrying on this whiskey-making tradition and distilling this liquid gold today.
Chateau d’If :: Marseilles, France
The notorious fortress that was part of the setting for the historic novel The Count of Monte Cristo by Alexandre Dumas was infamously the prison for many of France’s political and religious captives. Built as a fortress against Mediterranean Sea raiders between 1524 and 1531, Chateau d’If is still situated on its small, forbidding island about a mile from the French city of Marseille. Once a feared prison, Chateau d’If is now a popular tourist attraction.
