Announcing Euro Party 2018!
I'm very excited to announce that next year we'll be taking the Euro Party back to the Continent, this time in Germany: Schmitten
Dates will be forthcoming but are not yet available -Schmitten is located in a beautiful mountain range in Germany which is called Taunus. It is characterized by low-range mountains with vast forest areas and is one of Frankfurt's main local recreation areas. The highest mountain in the Taunus is the "Großer Feldberg" at 878 m, which is located directly next to our site. Hiking trails start directly at the site which provide a great way to explore the surrounding nature and wildlife.
The Taunus region itself is also famous for many ancient castles, beautiful old villages, as well as the Limes Germanicus and remains of several Roman settlements. There are many different cultural and histrorical sites only a short drive away from Schmitten. Some of those include a reconstructed Roman fortress - the Saalburg, the castle ruin of Königstein or the better preserved Kronberg castle which can all be visited. For those who are interested in the beautiful German half-timbered buildings, there is a huge display of over a hundred houses in the open-air museum Hessenpark which includes events and exhibitions to discover the everyday lives of people who lived there.
Frankfurt (Main) is the fifth largest city in Germany and is easily reachable by bus and underground. It is the major financial center of Europe and characterized by many tall skyscrapers - which is quite unique in Germany. But the city also offers a variety of cultural and leisure activities.
The closest airport to the venue is therefore Frankfurt International Airport (FRA). Schmitten can be reached from there by train/underground, followed by a short bus ride.
I'm very much looking forward to this party and working with Kethaana Nia Khamara as our incredible Local Liaison! Many thanks to her for providing the details around Frankfurt above, and I look forward to seeing everyone in Germany next year!
Date confirmed for:
21 - 23 September, 2018
