What may look like a very remotely located beer festival on a gray day actually is a very remotely located beer festival on a gray day on Walberla mountain about halfway between Bamberg and Nuremberg in Franconia, Bavaria, May 03. The ‘Walberlafest’ can be traced┬áback to 9th century May celebrations on this site with its stunning view (and its strange name)┬áthat was already populated in the Bronze Age.
