From August 19th to 29th we celebrate in Puerto de la Cruz the Bavarian Week; a celebration dedicated to the German community: to the passing travellers, to the locals, to those who fall in love with the island and stay and to those that always come back… Cit Puerto de la Cruz brings the German tradition, cuisine and music together; a cultural exchange under the sun.

Semana Bávara

Concierto Semana Bavara3

History of the celebration

The Bavarian orchestra “die Lustigen Egerländer” was the first orchestra invited by the Centre for Tourism Initiatives in Puerto de la Cruz to bring the German folklore to the town in 1973. Three years later the first Bavarian Party of Puerto de la Cruz was celebrated in the San Francisco Park. Since then the festival converted, 41 editions later, into one of the most famous city festivities.

And now it’s your turn. Celebrate it in the streets; clink glasses with the Germans and the locals. Take part of these two different cultures, share customs and joy for a few days  in the city. Cheers and Prosit!
