Things to see and do in Munich, Germany, that aren't in most guidebooks; my husband and I have a project to see all the sights listed in '111 Things in Munich You Shouldn't Miss'. This week: Allianz Arena and Sunken Village.
Each year on May 1st most European countries celebrate May Day, which is the equivalent of Labor Day in the US. Bavarians decorate a tall pole with an evergreen wreath at the top. It's a grand effort and ceremony to raise it. Then they, well, dance around the maypole! Here's my timelapse video of just such an event near Munich, Germany.
