Altstadtfest Nürnberg

The “Altstadtfest” is the annual festival in the historical town of Nuremberg: fresh food, music, celebration in the streets, not too loud and perfect for a nice, relaxed evening in the old town of Nuremberg.

This year the Altstadtfest happens to be at the same time with PADDLEexpo.

The website and event schedule is in German, but it will deliver basic information and maps:

WARNING – do not buy „attendees list“

The address data of PADDLEexpo attendees have been offered to some exhibitors in the last weeks/months and it seems to be going on.

This is a fraud!

All visitor data are confidential. Do not buy an “Prospective Visitors List”, “Paddleexpo 2017 Attendees List” or similar.

The Bavarian Purity Requirements:
It’s no coincidence, that Bavaria has the best beer in the world: Since the 16th century there have been strong regulations about brewing beer and how to keep up the high quality of the final product by choosing the ingredients very carefully. One of the oldest laws concerning food and drink are the Bavarian Purity Requirements, decreed by Duke William IV. in 1516: Only water, hops and barley should be used to brew Bavarian beer.
