Although Spring doesn't officially start until the end of March, Germany is getting into the spirit early!  Head to Alzey, about 40 minutes from RAB, for the afternoon and enjoy some spring festivities. From 1 pm to 6 pm, the Alzeyer shops open their doors and invite guests with some lively spring and summer fashions and "clever actions".  They will transform the shopping street into a sea of flowers.  There will be lots of great offers and promotions, action on the streets for both adults and kids, music, and delicious food.
