One of the great things about living in Germany is that there are always beer festivals. You don’t have to wait for Oktoberfest in Munich to get your beerfest on. For example, Regensburg has its own festival twice a year called Dult. In May, it’s Maidult. In the fall, it’s Herbstdult. It has all the same things you’d find at Oktoberfest – beer, lederhosen and dirndls, live music, giant pretzels, and rides- minus the enormous flood of tourists.
Right now, it’s Maidult. This weekend is the last weekend of Dult, running until the evening of Sunday the 26th. There will be fireworks at the closing, probably around 10pm since it’s not fully dark by 9.
At Dult, we have beer:
…and Poffertjes! (little tiny pancakes! In this case, with butter and powdered sugar on them. SO tasty.)
Have you ever been to Regensburg’s Dult?
