Venice and Germany have a deep relationsship through the historty and architecture of the baroque times. Ludwigsburg is such a city with barocco buildings and a beautiful marketplace. Every two years there is an event called: Venetian Fair. People in Venetian and historical costumes parade and celebrate Italian flair for a weekend. I went there with my then little daughter and my cousins daughter who lives near Ludwigsburg. The girlas and I had a blast. Only problem: it was 30 degrees celsius hot. And my costumes are made for 10 celsius.
