More WGT Pictures

Here are a few pics from Monday, the last day of the Wave Gotik Treffen. We decided to start off by eating lunch at Moritzbastei (the hotel breakfast was only until 10:30, I was too lazy to get up ;P), then checking out the medieval market there, and going to see the Heidnisches Dorf viking village. This naturally meant a lot of Met, or honey wine, as I think it's called in English! 

Just me and my Wikinger Blut! It's honey wine with cherry flavor.
I bravely went to order the Met in German, but had to resort to English after successfully telling what size and which type of Met I wanted, when the lady at the booth still asked me if I wanted mine hot or cold. I understand written German pretty well, but spoken is much harder! But I think I'm better every year, so if I go to WGT every year, maybe when I'm 80 I'll speak perfect German ;D


Outfit of the Day


Bolero - Queen of Darkness
Top - Queen of Darkness
Shorts - Cubus
Boots - New Rock (second hand)
Handbag - Addicted (second hand)

I had planned to stop by the hotel and change my clothes, but in the end there was no time. I felt very underdressed, but who cares, this was a great outfit to dance in! KMFDM and VNV Nation played at Agra in the evening, and we continued back to Moritzbastei to dance the night away (and eat). I'd say KMFDM was the best performance I saw this year, they had an awesome energy!

All in all it was a great festival, once again! I was feeling a bit tired on the first two nights, but I still got to see the bands I wanted and all the performances were great. I found the perfect skirt, and even when I didn't find a pair of New Rocks with wedge heels, I tried which size fits me so I can just order them when I find a style that I like :) The hotel was also great, internet access was included and they served a delicious breakfast! And by chance we got the same hotel and we're just about four rooms down from some friends who live a few blocks away in Tampere. Talk about a coincidence!

This one is from last year! Apparently then I was too lazy to photoshop a piece
of spinach off of my teeth and thus didn't use the picture ;P

    1. This was the "Best Western" right next to the railway station. The location was great, since we arrived by train the walk was just across one street, and at night all the strassenbahn stop at the station, so no wandering around the city at night ;)

    2. And the airconditioning! It was a great thing to have! The rooms were quite small, but I don't think you really need that much space at the hotel, it's just for sleeping and keeping your stuff safe.

    3. Oooooh great - Best Westerns are always a good choice. When we are in Paris in 3 weeks, we will also check into a Best Western. ^^
      I also need no big space but a room has to be clean and airconditioned ;)
      Thanks for your tip :-*

    1. I'm so happy I found the shrug! I actually bought a similar one last year from WGT and wore it to bits, since it was one of my favourite clothing items. WGT is a super fun festival, you should come!

  3. I saw you on the Bastei, but it was rather early and you looked a bit tired, so I didn't want to disturb you and your boyfriend... You looked so hot in your clothes, I love the outfit!

    1. VNV Nation really packed the Agra hall, it was a real challenge to just go out to the toilet and try to find your way back ;D

      I liked the best Western, the internet was included (so it was easy for me to update the blog and brag on Facebook of then bands I've seen ;P) and it was clean and nice. The rooms were very small, but that's the only bad thing I can think of. I can totally recommend it!
