  • See brute strength on display near Hamburg, Germany

    2012-05-02

    People around the world have loved to show off their strength and skills for thousands of years through organized competition. Travelers who head to the town of Wolfenbuttel in Germany this May may witness an odd sport that highlights power and perseverance, which has become a very popular occasion in the region.

    This year marks the 10th annual International German Championship - in bus pulling. This sport involved teams of mixed and separate genders to pull a massive bus by a rope along a pre-determined length. Whatever group moves the fastest is crowned winner and continues onto the world finals. Hundreds of spectators turn out for the contest to see participants grunt and pull their way into first place.

    Wolfenbuttel is located a few miles south of Hamburg, so those who have ventured to Germany for the event may easily venture to this neighboring city. According to Frommer's, this destination has its own unique attractions that may rival the bus pulling, including the Musikhalle venue that hosts a variety of interesting and classic musical performances throughout the year.
