Things to Look Forward to at the Party!

Bars, yummy food, music, entertainment, new faces and a unique atmosphere: These are the ingredients of an unforgettable midsummer night party. Have a look around, taste some of the food and put together your individual midsummer night program: You could start at the surfer’s bar, then see some improv theatre and later try your hand at karaoke.
