Fun at the Gäuboden Fair

The Gäuboden fair in Straubing, which was first celebrated in 1812, is Bavaria’s second largest fair, the largest still being the Oktoberfest in Munich. 1.4 million visitors come every year to soak up Bavarian “Gemütlichkeit” in the large tents.

Things get lively in the beer tents: Beer is flowing, the brass band is playing traditional Bavarian music and waitresses in stylish “Dirndl” dresses are serving classics such as roasted chicken, pretzels, “Obatzda” (a hearty cream cheese) or fish on sticks. And of course, the liquid gold: Bavarian beer.

Points of view

Quiet corners, narrow alleys, century-old houses with facades that tell stories and – right in the middle – the 68 meters high city tower with its striking five spires: Welcome to Straubing at the Danube.
