The Kaiserslautern Gartenschau, also known as dinosaur park, will re-open for the new season Saturday through Oct. 31, highlighting the motto, “The four seasons.”
The Easter holidays are just around the corner. In Germany, Easter week begins with Holy Thursday, which Germans call “Gründonnerstag,” or green Thursday. The word “green” is not associated with the color, but rather with the old German verb “grienen,” meaning to bemoan. Some people still recognize Holy Thursday traditions by eating green vegetables that day, preferably spinach.
