Travel and Explore Straubing in Bavaria, Germany

We went to this city almost two years ago to experience its famous festival called the Gäubodenvolksfest. It is held annually during the month of August. The Gäubodenvolksfest in Straubing is the second largest genuine folk festival in Bavaria, Germany, after the Munich Oktoberfest.

Straubing a city in Lower Bavaria in the southern part of Germany. This is a historical city conquest by the Romans in 16-14 BC. Until today, you can still see many traces of the 400-year Roman occupation such as the ‘Römerschatz’ or the roman treasure.

I hope to visit this city again in the future..maybe during its Gäubodenvolksfest this year. I will see.
