Following the festival route is a creative way to tour Europe and gives travelers a bit of sightseeing, some awesome one-of-a-kind souvenirs, a lot of swaying and more cultural-insight than you could ever ask for. Summer is the ideal time to do this because the best festivals occur during Europe’s warmer months. If you plan it right you can spend a few days soaking up the music, art and crafts at the Tollwood Festival in Munich before heading over to Holland for the North Sea Jazz extravaganza.
