What is Global Village?
Multicultural festival park

There are more than 25 national pavilions. Some countries have their own pavilion, others have been brought together into one joint pavilion. For example, Thailand has its own pavilion and the countries of Africa together in one pavilion.
In the pavilions you can generally find shops and events, each with their own influence of that country or region. More than 3,500 stores from nearly 80 different countries offer their local products in the festival park.
You will not starve immediately, you can find no less than 20 different multicultural cuisines. For a quick bite you can still find 120 traditional food stalls. For families with children this is also a true paradise!
With more than 60 different attractions, there is plenty of entertainment for young and old, from sensational attractions to traditional street games.
If you are a fan of gigs then you should plan a visit to Global Village on Friday. On that day you can come and watch a concert by national and international artists from 9 p.m.
To put the festival on the map, there is a spectacular firework display every Thursday and Friday.
