Franz Ferdinand Fly to Germany for Rock'n'Heim 2013 Rock Festivals, Casino Games, and Other Must-Do Activities in Germany

Franz Ferdinand, our favourite band from Glasgow, Scotland, is set to perform at the Rock'n'Heim 2013 during the weekend of August 16-18, 2013. Rock'n'Heim is an annual music festival hosted in Hockenheim, Germany in which various internal rock acts gather and perform on one stage.

Aside from Franz Ferdinand, the lineup also features Boys Noize Live, Casper Chase & Status, Deftones, Die Ärzte, Enter Shikari, Heaven Shall Burn, Knife Party, Kraftklub, Kvelertak, Lexy & K-Paul, Marteria, Modestep, Nero, and Nine Inch Nails. Oliver Koletzki, Robert Delong, Seeed, Sub Focus, Susanne Blech, System Of A Down, Tenacious D, The Pretty Reckless, Volbeat, and Zebrahead will be there, too.

For those who are planning to go to Germany to see Franz Ferdinand in Rock'n'Heim, we have compiled a short list of activities you can engage in before and after their performance to maximize your trip.

Watch a football match
Just like other Europeans, Germans are the most loyal fans of football. Due to their strong love for this sport, watching a live football match in Germany has become an “experience of a lifetime,” says "It is not only about the match itself, it is about the good atmosphere whole day long, starting from singing fan songs in the trains from the early morning to partying during the night."

Play casino games
Since you’re already in Germany, why not try their local casino scene during your stay? Germany is home to a number of first-class venues, which are all worth visiting. One of the businesses that the country takes pride in is the beautiful, not to mention historical Casino Baden-Baden. This casino has been in operation since 1809, and has over 113 slot machines and 24 table games on their 32,289 square feet of gaming space.

Digital versions of casino games are also popular throughout Germany. A popular online gaming site, PartyPoker DE hosts regular matches as well as seasonal tournaments for classic casino games. It was designed by Bwin.Party Digital Entertainment as an alternative to live venues, catering to those who prefer to play casino games in the comfort of their own homes. Once you start playing, make sure that you put your earphones on and blast some Franz Ferdinand tunes for a powerplay.

Go castle hopping
If you are looking for a more peaceful activity to do after the music festival, then castle hopping is the one for you. Germany holds ground to some of the oldest castles in the world. This includes the Neuschwannstein Castle in Bavaria. Known as the “fairytale castle”, Neuschwannstein was built in 1869 as a private summer retreat for the late King Ludwig II of Bavaria.
