Top 5 events this summer

Expo 2015

Expo Milan 2015

May 1 - October 31, 2015

In 2015, Milan will be the centre of the world's attention as the host of Expo 2015. This enormous exhibition, covering over one million square meters, is expected to welcome more than 20 million visitors.

Tickets can be bought in advance at the Expo 2015 website.

High-speed trains from all directions stop at the Rho Fiera Expo Milano 2015 station. This is the fastest way to get the exhibition.

Oktoberfest, Munich


September 19 - October 4, 2015

In October, Munich transforms into the beer capital of the world. Nearly 1.6 million gallons (7 million liters) or Germany’s finest brews are served each year. Enjoy your beer in large halls with the locals. And don't miss the traditional food like sauerkraut and wurst (sausages) to fill your stomach.

The beer halls can be reached best by S-Bahn (tram) or U-Bahn (metro).

A maypole

Midsummer Festival

June 19 - June 20, 2015

When the Swedes celebrate summer, they really celebrate summer. Two and a half days of music, maypoles and mayhem as Sweden praises the always-too-short, best season of the year.

Midsummer parties take place all across Sweden.

Bastille Day, Paris

Bastille Day

July 14 - July 15, 2015

The national celebration (La Fête Nationale) of the French Revolution and France’s eventual independence begins in the evening of the 14th. Just before nightfall, an impressive military parade along the Champs-Elysées gets the festivities started. That’s followed by an elaborate dance party and a spectacular fireworks show. Celebrations continue on through the 15th.

The Champs-Elysées can easily be reached by metro.

Tomatina, Buñol


August 26 - August 27, 2015

The Spanish try not to take themselves too seriously and this festival demonstrates this perfectly. The culmination of crazy people (both Spanish and tourists) plus unlimited supplies of tomatoes is basically all that is needed to make Tomatina a splattering success!

Take a bus from the center of Valencia to Buñol.
