Video: When Spring Arrives, Germans Appear As If By Magic

After an extended winter, spring has apparently arrived in Hannover, Germany (even though it has been snowing balls since I wrote this post). I recorded this short video on April 7th, 2013, when tons of Germans came out to the Maschsee to drink some beer before wandering over to the AWD Arena to watch the Hannover 96 play against VfB Stuttgart. (And I have no idea who won because — try as I might — I just don’t care.)

Usually, when I jog around the Maschsee in the morning, its like a ghost town. No one around but me, a German or two and a couple of filthy geese. But when the sun comes out? Oh, it’s party time. Check it out.

(NOTE: If you’re wondering about that grunting noise at the end, it’s me lifting the camera up with my tiny little T-Rex arms.)

  1. Spring has arrived at last. Good for you. This is quite a contrast from your running video where there was no one in sight!


  2. Hilarious blog. Life provides us with SO much to snicker at (thank God!)


  3. Ha, you’ll enjoy the beergarden season then. Loads of Germans out then. Enjoy spring as long as you can.


  4. Hahahahaha!! You are so right!!
    Hope you are going to enjoy the nice temperatures today… among the germans!




  5. Such a fun blog. Thanks for stopping by my place and leaving a trail of bread crumbs so I could follow you home. I needed a good laugh.


  6. *chuckle* – Another cool and funny post – and of course I laughed about the “T-Rex-arms” – suuuuuure!! LOL


  7. That’s like Canadians! In the short summer months they go all out and paaaaaaaarty!!!!!!


  8. Unquestionably believe that which you said.
    Your favorite reason seemed to be on the net the easiest thing to
    be aware of. I say to you, I certainly get irked
    while people consider worries that they plainly do not
    know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the
    top as well as defined out the whole thing without having side-effects , people can take
    a signal. Will likely be back to get more. Thanks
