Loving these photos!

I have never been to a German fair, but will be going to Cranger Kirmes in a couple weeks. Getting excited!

Donkeys are my way of life!

Although I have yet to ride on either, I suspect that any fair with both Olympia Looping and Alpina Bahm is probably a good one. ;)

^this anually only happens at Oktoberfest - Düsseldorf has both only every 3-4 years. But in Düsseldorf you can book a 3*** hotel for around €50 during the carnival while prices in Munich skyrocket.

but will be going to Cranger Kirmes in a couple weeks


Then you'll be riding Olympia - Alpina will go to Anakirmes next.

There is no such thing as a donkey punch.

Great Pics, thanks!

I'm going this saturday with Ledgy. It seems like we'll be having a blast!

@ Swimace: If you have a car, you can also go to the Annakirmes in Düren, it's only a 1h15m drive from the Cranger Kirmes. That way, you can do both OL and AB!
