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.

Open from October 29, 2019 to April 4, 2020

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.
