While Germany’s soccer success is known the world over and its history has been well documented, Germany also brims with fascinating living traditions that are far less well known.
For 2015, Germany invites the world to #joingermantraditions by showcasing its widespread cultural traditions that live on in today’s modern Germany.
Working with the German National Tourist Office UK and Ireland (GNTO), three Captivate bloggers who specialise in covering cultural events will each spend a week in Germany this summer, exploring and reporting back on the traditions they find (and participate in!).
Captivate director, Abigail King says “It’s a great chance to explore the country’s history and culture in depth since each of the bloggers involved
Becki Enright from Borders of Adventure, Michael Turtle from Time Travel Turtle and Abigail King herself from Inside the Travel Lab will cover their experiences in real time, asking for tips from their audiences, as well as covering their trips as longer form pieces on their blogs when they return.
Highlights include where to find the best festivals, where the locals go, food markets and how to find talented artisan craftspeople.
In addition, the GNTO’s social wall
Klaus Lohmann, director of the German National Tourist Office UK & Ireland said: “Germany’s traditions and customs are alive and thriving in the 21st century. We look forward to following Captivate’s discoveries through social media and feel sure the #joingermantraditions project will inspire other people to explore Germany too”.
