Each year on the second weekend in August Weinheim goes crazy. Starting from the Kerwehouse in the tanners' quarter, the kerwe begins.There is live music all over the town, lots of food stalls, some rides for the kids, in a word: People partying throughout the weekend. If you happen to be near Weinheim that time of the year, come and join the fun.
Dress Code: Anything goes, but bring a jacket if you decide to stay until morning.

People usually start laughing when they see this traffic sign for the first time, asking if the toads are poisonous or jumping up into peoples' faces to bite.
But it's not such a laughing matter, certainly not for the toads.
Each spring, the toads want to go home to the lake where they hatched and they go, no matter if there's a street or a footpath in between. Many get run over by cars, which - apart from killing the toads - covers the street with lots of slime and makes it difficult to brake. Each year there are local volunteers trying to collect the toads in buckets and bringing them to their "home lake".
This year I happened to be in Weinheim with a tour group when the toads started wandering and mating.We were walking down the hill and had to watch our step very closely, as there were toads all over the place.

Luggage and bags: Make sure you have a small collapsible bag that you can off load dirty clothes into to make room for all the souveniers you are going to buy.
Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Layers, Layers, Layers. Make sure you have some kind of rain gear--e.g. Disposable poncho, small folding umbrella, wind breaker. I brought a Coleman's disposible rain poncho and used it one evening as a particularly sudden thunderstorm brewed up. The weather changes quickly in Weinheim.
Photo Equipment: Bring an extra battery for your camera. I realised I should have purchased an extra re-chargable battery for my camera, it went kaput at the wedding!
