Auer Dults. There are three of them: spring, summer and fall.
They are always on the grounds of Mariahilf Church. They've best been
described as half flea-market, half beer fest, and always with a touch
of the unexpected. There is a garage sale atmosphere here and the diversity
of new and second-hand wares is a special treat for those who enjoy a
combination shopping spree and scavenger hunt.
The Auer Dult tradition itself actually predates the Oktoberfest. For
more than 600 years there have been three of these fests, spring, summer
and fall.. The "Dult", a colloquial root from the original Latin
word indultum (indulgence), consists of row after row of booths filled
with everything from rare, antique books to hand-painted ceramic figurines,
to old Munich memorabilia, to plain-but-useful pots and pans. Naturally,
there are plenty of carnival rides, a beer tent, and lots of fast-food
Upcoming Auer Dults:
Spring: April 29 - May 7
Summer: July 29 - August 6
Fall: October 20-28
Spring: April 28 - May 6
