Auer Dult: Jumble sale and entertainment
Three times a year
The Auer Dult is held three times a year on the square around Mariahilf church and is one of Munich's oldest markets. The name "Dult" is derived from an old German word meaning "observance"
Nowadays it is one of the major seasonal events in the city: its largest jumble sale and a unique place which you can search for rarities and curiosities from the old days. About 300 stands offer rare books and old prints, haberdashery goods, natural hair and skin care, or Europe's largest selection of china and cooking equipment. Many an authentic traditional garment, be it lederhose or dirndl, has been found here; and if you are lucky, you might find a real treasure.
Children rather appreciate horseback riding, the puppet show, the merry-go-rounds, one of which features a historic organ; teenagers are probably more interested in a ride on the bumper cars or in testing their skills at shooting galleries. Acrobats and clowns entertain all generations just like in the old days.
After all the searching and entertainment, there is nothing like a good, savoury lunch. There are plenty of stalls selling fresh food and drinks: beer, but also fruit juices and fresh coffee, which all go well with traditional Bavarian snacks such as fish-on-a-stick, barbecued sausages and chicken. You'll also find caramelised almonds and plenty of candy.
