"Cheap flights and loud riffs" Weeze by sabsi

Weeze Travel Guide: 15 reviews and 75 photos

July 2004 +++

I have finally added some bits about Niederrhein Airport here as more people come here for a cheap flight around Europe than for a rock festival that doesn't even take place in 2004.

September 2003 +++

I just spent three exciting days at Terremoto 2003. This festival - one of the biggest in Germany (it used to be called Bizarre though) - takes place once a year and it has a great atmosphere and program.

    We too used V-bird to fly to Germany, we stayed at Keveler just down the road from Weese, as you say they are a great cheap airline. 10 out of 10

    Sooner or later you will visit here for other reason, BTW; you need to update it, Dusseldorf has moved closer, it is not 100 km anymore, only about 70 :-)
