Music resounds over kitzingen’s market square, many visitors cavort in front of the town hall, crowned heads are lined up in large numbers: it’s easter saturday and the start of the tourism season is traditionally ushered in in this large county town. This is also the case this year.
And it is also one of the first rough events for the new french wine queen. This year it is carolin meyer from the castell district greuth, who is full of praise for the city on the main: "kitzingen is so diverse and has so much to offer", says the sovereignty crowned only a few days ago. The main, the wine, the winegrowers’ families, the carnival culture and much more – all this makes kitzingen so valuable. And there are also a lot of offers for the guest, who can really feel comfortable here.
And not only she, but also the tourism officer dietrich hermann, the head of the tourism information vanessa feineis and, above all, the high councillor walther vierrether give a brief foretaste of the many events that await guests and kitzingen residents alike.
"On 1. May is the post off", in his reference to the main festival, which will take place on the old mainbrucke and along both banks of the river, the court councillor promises "everything that life has to offer" offers. The kitzinger stadtschoppen, which offers kitzingen wines on the old mainbrucke from thursday to sunday, starts just one day later – and continues until the 13th. October.
The kitzingen town festival at the end of main/beginning of june with three days of "music – games – fun for free and under the stars" is also a fixed date. A month later, the famous promenade wine festival on the banks of the main river. And of course, all of this is just a sample of the many events on offer in the city this year.
