Munich Travel Tip:
The Auer Dult is a traditional annual market in Munich, Germany, taking place three times per year on the Mariahilfplatz in the Munich district of Au. The first fair of the year, the so-called Maidult (May fair) is held in the first weekend of the month. The Jakobidult takes place in July and the Kirchweihdult occurs in the week after Kermesse. Each one lasts nine days.
Around three hundred traders and showmen take part in the Auer Dult, which is not only a market but also a folk festival. Next to the area of the Standl are typical fairground rides. There is also a small Ferris wheel, a chairoplane, a child's roundabout, a swing boat, a horse riding track, dodgems and shooting galleries. There are also various takeaways and a beer tent which offers typical Bavarian specialities. In contrast to the Oktoberfest and the Munich Spring Festival (Münchner Frühlingsfest), the Auer Dult is much more discreet and calm. In the course of the year, around 300,000 visitors are counted.
