Hello, I´m making my schedule for attending the wacken festival, so I´m planning to go to another festival before or after the wacken week.

So far I´ve seen just the Headbangers Open Air Festival which is one week before, however I know that there are other festivals that are made in the previously mentioned weeks, so I just want to know if anyone know about other heavy metal festivals near the wacken date.

Thanks!

On the same date as the mentioned HOA is the Nord Open Air in Essen (Ruhrpoot Area) which takes place in downtown and is for free. The week after Wacken the allmighty Party.San Open Air takes place in Schlotheim, Thuringia.

Party.San Festival is one week after Wacken.
Röhn Rock and Summer Breeze Festival are two weeks after Wacken.

First, I don't know where you'll be. This is important as distances in Germany can be big (for Dutch/Belgian people, who live in a smaller country ;) )
But I found some.
11-12 July: Dong Open Air, Halde Norddeutschland, Neukirchen-Vluyn (NRW)
16-18 July: Bang Your Head Festival, Balingen (BaWü)
17-18 July: Dynamo Metal Fest, Kunstijsbaan, Eindhoven (Netherlands, about 1hr from Germany)
24-25 July: Rock Im Wald, VfB Sportplatz, Neuensee (Bay)
24-25 July: Headbangers Open Air, Brande-Hörnerkirchen (SH)
06-08 August: Party-San, Flughafen Obenmehler, Schlottheim (Thü)
12-15 August: Summer Breeze, Dinkelsbühl (BaWü)

That should help you for now.

If you're into old school heavy, thrash and speed metal I can really recommend Headbangers open air.
