Stuttgart Beer Festival

The Canstatter Wasen is the second largest beer festival in Germany after the Oktoberfest. Its popularity increases every year as more people from all over the world come to visit. The Stuttgart Beer Festival was formed around 1818 when King Wilhelm decided to celebrate the end to years of hunger.

The large beer tents host an ebullient atmosphere and the introduction of some wild and fast new rides to the fairground keep visitors on their toes. Culinary delights like 'Käsespätzle' (Swabian noodles with cheese), potato noodles with sour kraut or crispy knuckles complete the whole festival experience.

Czech beer brands such as Ferdinand, Platan and Kocour are amongst the 70 brands of beer on show at Cannstatter Wasen and, with an ample supply of each throughout the festival, you will never find yourself short of your favourite beer. Away from the fairground rides and beer tents, there is an open-air market where you can shop to your heart's content in a relaxed environment. Things on offer range from jewellery and trendy leather goods to fragrant herbs and spices.
