A Festival in Regensburg, Germany = Music, Sausages and Beer!




Ahhh....summer in Europe, and in Germany in particular, is rife with outdoor festivals full of food, music and, of course, beer! Before moving back to the United States, we took a two-week vacation (for me) and work (for my husband) trip around Germany and Austria. Luckily we rented a car, so we were able to stay in a few larger cities and make several day trips. One such trip was to Regensburg, a beautiful little city on the Danube. At first, we couldn't figure out why the parking lots were jam packed, but once we drove past one of the main streets in the old town, we realized that they were holding a summer festival that day! (My husband, who spent a summer in Regensburg a few years back, says that there are many, many festivals that are held throughout the summer months there...)

The festival had food, drink and wares booths as well as several music venues set up all over the old town. One of my favorites was this juice/wine booth, where you could get several flavors of non-alcoholic juice or wine mixed with juice. The punch bowls were just beautiful!


There were also several outdoor ovens where they would make your pizza for you right then and there:


And of course, there were oompa bands--which my daughter thoroughly enjoyed!


We went for the traditional sausages and beer...all freshly grilled and tapped.


And if that wasn't enough, my daughter begged for one of these gigantic donuts! I just couldn't resist... (She never finished this monstrosity, thank goodness!)


I'll be posting more of our German fare in the next week or so, along with some of the recipes for my CSA veggies, so come back for more!

German, sausage and beer in the same sentence is enough to make my mouth water. It sounds wonderful! It is truly one of my favorite cuisines and I really have no idea why. I've never been a huge meat fan, but put it in German sausage form and I go nuts. With the kraut, taters and mustard too, of course. Oh, and throw a massive pretzel in there.

One of the best summer fests we've been too is the Film Fest in Vienna. They had those same wine drinks there. So tasty!

Okay I am dumb founded by that giant doughnut your daughter was about to nibble on! I am with Lori, a giant pretzel will do me fine...little mustard please!

My hubbby had the opportunity to visit that area a few years ago, and left poor little me at home :(

That giant doughnut is out of control!

My husband and I just had a vacation in Munich and Innsbruck, Austria. We loved it soooo much! The food/beer/outdoor eating and market culture was so relaxing and amazing. Munich was the most wonderful city that we've ever been to in that respect. Seeing all of those photos made me miss even more than I already do! Sounds like you had a fabulous time, too!

Lori and ChefE--Don't worry, I'll definitely be posting a gigantic pretzel! You didn't think I'd go to Germany and skip that treat, did you???

Carrie--And said pretzel was bought in Munich... ;-)

Really !!! Regensburg is an awesome city in Germany to enjoy festivals. I also have visited Regensburg couple of times before as it is living place of one of my close relative. I have attended Burger festival, Regensburg Dult, Spectaculum. This all are pleasant and enjoyable festivals and I just can’t forget those memories.
I have written some information about these festivals in Regensburg on a social travel guide website. Please have a look at the link below.
